I posted about this SSD last month when the price was $319. Now you can find the Samsung 840 500GB SSD on amazon for $279, that’s a little less the 56 cents a GB. If you want to give your work station or laptop a speed boost at a reasonable price this is well worth checking out. I haven’t seen a 500GB SSD drop this low in almost 6 months.
The Samsung 840 isn’t quit as fast as the latest generation of SSD’s on the market, but it’ll still be a major upgrade from a spinning drive. Right now it’s almost $100 cheaper then any other 500GB SSD drive making it’s slight performance lag easy to handle for the price. If you’re in the market check it out.
