    Best SSD for pc?

    So I'm in the process of upgrading to an SSD as my main drive.

    Who has done it? Any positive/negative experiences so far?

    I'm looking at a 500gb Samsung EVO850, can pick em up for around the $225 mark posted.

    SSD is life.

    Seriously it's been the most noticeable change I've ever made in all my time building pcs/using laptops.

    There's not much negative about them other than the capacity which is almost a non-issue these days. Everything is snappier. Everything. It makes older hardware feel a bit more alive too - I've put some in a few generation old laptops and with a fresh install of windows it's like a brand new laptop (for the basic uses they get used for I mean).

    The Evos are a solid unit for a good price, but there's faster out there if your motherboard can support it (m.2 or msata slots), but otherwise the Evos are tip top.

    Too expensive and too small if used as backup drive as this moment.

    Just read up about failure rates. When I got mine a year ago Microsoft one seemed to be the best.
    Only using as main drive and back up everything to other drives.

    @MikeCheck Speed isn't a major thing honestly. I will be going from a mechanical 2tb to the SSD. So it's going to be a huge boost in speed.
    @dutchy I have about 10tb of external hdds for storage.
    @guy 27 that's the plan.

    Have a library which is currently nearing 20tb. The normal discs are priced well to get a few tb yearly.
