I'm currently thinking of buying a Samsung SSD drive the 128GB one for $132.99, is this a good deal?

Also I currently have Windows 7 on my HDD,how do I switch it over to my SSD?

1) The Samsung Evo Pro does not exist.

2) A 128GB SSD for $133 is an awful price.

3) The Samsung Pro is not even the best SSD out there.

Lol.

It's the Samsung 840 evo.


I recommend getting the 250gb version but that's my opinion. They can go on sale sometimes for 160.

For price and performance go Evo, the pro has better performance but just barely. You pay a lot extra for slightly better durability and a much better warranty.

How would you say it compares to the Seagate 600 cards?

Seagate 600 definitely performs better than the 840 Evo and usually does better than the 840 Pro.
