    About a year ago, I upgraded my 2009 Macbook Pro by adding a Samsung SSD. I'm still using that Mac Pro and it never performed as well as it does today.
    If you have an aged notebook in good shape and want more speed, consider the new EVO 750.

    Samsung has launched a new version of its EVO solid state drive range in the United States, a few months after being sold in Asia. The 750 EVO line is currently made up of two SSDs with 120GB and 250GB capacities. Samsung has made a few sacrifices to the specification of the new drives in order to lower the price down to below the existing mid-level 850 EVO versions, but the two ranges appear to be evenly matched when directly compared.

    The Samsung 750 EVO 120GB and 250GB SSDs are appearing at retailers now, priced at $55 and $75 respectively.

    I have an 840 EVO and an 850 PRO. I haven't read anything about a 750.

    The 750 has been here in Asia for 4-6 months. It's now available in the US. Part of the price reduction is a 3 year warranty rather than the 5 year that the 850 has.

    I have one customer who only gets 850 Pros in his systems. The Pro has a 10 year warranty, or 150 TB written. I have been using the Samsung Evo and Pro drives in all my system builds for customer for 1 1/2 years and have yet to have a failure. We're talking about hundreds of drives.

    Only issue is the 250GB limit. I have 512s.

    I have never had a failure in my SSDs either.

    I remember reading a report several months ago where they set up several SSDs to be continuously read and written to see how long it would take for them to fail. The bottom line was that the manufacturers are actually underestimating the life of the SSDs. They got something like triple the expected reds/writes before they had even 1 failure.

    I have an 840 Pro in my desktop and love it. Decided to buy a cheap SSD for my laptop that was stupid slow and grabbed the cheapest I could find which was a low end SanDisk SSD. Honestly, I cant' tell the difference. I will continue to buy high end for my desktop for reliability but for speed, basic day to day stuff feels the same.

    Samsung is the Toyota of ssd drives. Nothing compares in performance and reliability.

    I bought a 250gb 850 for 99 last year, I love it... already written over 5.5tb to it.

    my laptop could REALLY use this.
