Samsung 750 evo or 850 evo : worth the extra?

Nashiwa

Hey guys!

So I'm buying the parts for my first built, and I have a choice to make : on the website I'm using, I can either get a 250gb Samsung 750 EVO for 79$ or I can add an extra 10$ and get myself a 250gb Samsung 850 EVO for 89$ on sale.

I've looked at a few reviews of both SSDs and a few benchmarks, and I can't decide whether the performance upgrade of the 850 is really worth it or not.

Any advice?

Here's the full built :

I recommend the 850 EVO over the 750.

if you can go for the evo 850 but the evo 750 is also a good ssd and almost as good as the 850 evo.

The SSD 750 EVO delivers the same performance and user experience as the 850 EVO during normal consumer workloads. The warranty and endurance are the most significant differences between the two SSDs. The 850 EVO has a full 5-year warranty, which covers up to 150 TBW, while the new 750 EVO ships with an entry-level 3-year warranty and 100 TBW.

I see...because when I was looking at benchmarks the results were mostly +30-40% speed for the 850 evo, but I wasn't sure if that difference could really be seen in everyday use or only in "benchmarking conditions". I'll probably stick to the 750 EVO then, thanks!

that website is not really a good place to compare ssd's or gpus and cpus. Always try to stick to those tech forums that have much better equipment to test these parts.

If you are only looking to have an ssd for main storage then you could try out 480gig models for sub $99

It's mostly for the OS and apps, I'll use an old HDD for regular storage (music, videos, ...)

Another vote for the 850 Evo.
