Why don't you sell your monitor and get a new one?

In the end I will be losing money selling it, and I will have to pay at least $80 extra to get multiple input.  That's $100+ and no guarantee it will be dead pixel/backlight bleed free >.>

It's here :D

 

 

 

If I was to rank the SSD's I've held by rank (Plextor Pro, OCZ Vertex 450, Seagate 600) and now this Samsung EVO 840. The Samsung will get last place in all areas.

 

It's box was some schitty thin cardboard thing. The internal documents inspired no one, and the drive itself felt like a piece of aluminum foil wrapped around a stick of RAM.

That's exactly how I felt about the sandisk ssds. Does it perform badly? I I thought those were Higher end.

I pity the soul who could not get TRIM to work on the 840/Pro.  Worst performance I have ever seen on a SSD period!

Otherwise its very snappy...Whose credit card do you charge for this stuff??? :p

Enable the performance boost setting in Samsung's SSD utility. Makes this thing perform like a PCIe based SSD. *drool*

You do realise the 840 Evo and 840 Pro are some of the fastest and reliable SSD's out there. Followed by latest OCZ and Sandisk Extreme Plus. Intel's 530 would've been good but it's absolutely crap, worse then the 520.

Also, for reference, my Micron/Crucial M4 basically came in worse packaging. A small box not much bigger than the SSD, a plastic tray, and the SSD was in that tray w/ a small anti-static bag over it. My M4 feels like a cheap plastic toy I could throw around. Samsungs are built better than this (don't get me wrong, I love this SSD).

 

You expect an SSD to come in some sort of brick-like cardboard box with thorough documentation you would probably never read? And the SSD itself isn't meant to take a hell of a beating either. You want it to withstand a sledgehammer? It's nothing more than just a plastic or aluminum case that's fairly thin holding onto a PCB with a few chips soldered to it.

 

Bowei, you're an idiot.

You guys need to understand 90% of my posting. It's all rants. All rants.

 

I don't know if any of you have noticed, but for a portion of time, I started explaining EVERY single detail and rationale for my actions. Why I did it etc to defend myself.

 

I did that in my reviews too. That made for SCHIIT reviews. 

 

No more. In the professional field. You don't explain why you rant or are doing something. People may rage on you for it (like people rage on Kotaku) but once you start writting, tweeting, ranting and get an audience. It means you've made it.

 

I just rant about my stuff. Because seriously yeah, that packaging, I don't really care. It was just a funny rant. 

 

This is why people can rant and complain about a lot of posts bloggers and reviewers write about. We no longer see a need to ever explain to our readers why we are ranting about it. It's all fun stuff to us, just words flowing out of our fingers.

Well, the audience here doesn't find it amusing or funny, just annoying.

Yeah, sure do.  However, the 840/Pro SSDs are one of the worst (if not worst) in terms of degradation if TRIM functionality is not enabled/non-existent.  You probably should have read my post again, I did say it was snappy otherwise :confused:

 

The Agility 2 64GB has faster performance than the 840 Pro! (Assuming both are not collecting garbage).

 

Its why I do not recommend Samsung SSDs to Linux noobs ;)  TRIM can be weird if even configured properly, at least in the popular distributions that is. 

 

I really wish I would have splurged on the 840 Pro.. I wonder if there will be better deals next year

It's a thread, lighten up.

 

Not sure if you've gotten to that point yet, but conversation and making friends is all about small talk, making fun of stuff etc.

 

Imperial X wrote an essay on this phenomena where he hates anime with any plot. In where he says that plot and all that is something he experiences every day and that he wants anime to be something mindless that he can relax and enjoy.

 

These online threads are just that. At the end of the day, I'm almost 700miles away from the nearest family, have two upcomming tests just as I finished taking another one, and have $xx,xxxx amount in debt and need to fill out paperwork here, network there, manage this, get the student government to approve that. 

 

I come home from all that. I see a box with an SSD I just bought and its hilariously sucky. So sucky that it's amusing and that I just need to take pictures and put it online. That's it. 

 

It's a way of escaping and making small talk with people. I love making Apple/Microsoft/Sony etc hate jokes that are mindless with non-techy friends. They don't get and don't care to know every explanation for why the rationale is wrong. And honestly, it doesn't matter. It's a way to talk, rage about something, find and connect with somebody. It's a way to take the pain away. 

 

Sometimes I sit in my empty room, contemplating what it is that I'm doing. My friends have their lives going on, and I have mine. Take away those friends of mine - and oh how fragile friendship is - and I'm all alone. I'm in a cold place, trying to make a name for myself. There is pain every second of my day, but you know what breaks that pain? Excitement, and interaction. Excitement as I see the UPS guy pull up with my package. And laughter as I find out that one of the best SSD's of its class has some of the schittiest everything else I have ever seen.

 

Social networking, and interaction. It's a drug that everyone likes and needs.
