My previous SSD (it was not made by Samsung) died ...

My previous SSD (it was not made by Samsung) died after two years of moderate home use. The symptom was a sudden black screen with a "please insert system disk" (or similar) message. I could reboot once or twice, but no more.

I bought the PRO version hoping that it would last longer than the cheaper consumer-grade device I had before. The rationale is that the extra cost of a "pro" SSD far outweighs the time needed to make a fresh install of the operating system, office software, email configuration, etc. (It is of course too soon to tell if that was a good investment.)

My PC is already 5-6 years old, at the time an upper-mid-range quad-core Intel CPU, ASUS Motherboard with SATA-3 HDD interface. Considering that the speed of an SSD drive outruns the pace of SATA-3, I did not expect any speed improvement. But I did notice some improvement in the write speed, which came as a surprise. I cannot comment on read speed, because the observed improvement is most likely the result of a fresh Windows 7 and Office installation.

As always congrats to Digitec, the order placed at 4pm arrived the next morning as announced on the website, that's the kind of reliability I both expect and appreciate.
