I have a a 256g Samsung 840 pro on a intel z87express. I have ended up with a spare 256 840 pro and was wondering if the my understanding of intel rst is correct- I cam just hookup my 2nd drive go into the prog configure for raid 0 with those 2 drives and the prog will take care of the rest. and I wont loose any info... is this correct and how robust/safe is it?
I believe Samsung mag will not wok though raid right(I used it t osetup a 20%% op on my drive)
my 840 pro is primary and gets numbers very close to advertised. I think the is probably due to my op at close to 25%. I did the same thing to my old 830(secondary) and it is actually getting numbers slightly higher than advertised. so maybe try op and see what happens.
I pretty much agree with everything you said, just curious about Plextor. why do you consider them irrelevant? if it their lack of market penetration/availability I get that, but you said there were various reasons and Im curious as to what they are.
did not know that, ty. that aside the 'pro' vers is only $10 more at newegg y wouldn't u go with that?
im pretty sure plex gets top bin nand from Toshiba. not so sure about micron/intel. unless its a significant diff in price id go with the higher quality(assumption on my part) everytime. and you get the newer controller with the pro.
from everything I have read and my own limited experience you can just pick your capacity of either brand and find the cheapest one for that size. personally I would go with the Samsung 840 pro(going to be my next buy).
