    What is the cause of this? Been using 512GB M4 + 256GB mSATA M4 for a couple months now, lots of time sleeping and coming out of sleep, never an issue.

    I think the Samsung is the fastest, but for the cost you can't beat the M4.

    Agree with HT. M4 price wise is unbeatable. Don't know about BSOD from sleep either. Only trouble I had is the bluetooth seems to stop working, though I suspect it's more of Intel's wireless drivers and not the SSD.

    Nvm, look at thread here:
    http://forum.notebookreview.com/sol...ash-storage/673999-what-hell-wrong-my-m4.html

    Seems like some people have issues with the M4.

    Well the OP had fixed it due to a bad connection, basically it had slid loose. The other issues I've read seem to point to primarily Lenovo/Thinkpad laptops using the "ultrabay". I'm not saying the issue doesn't exist, just that it won't/doesn't affect 99.9% of users.

    Yeah, none of the options.
    The correct answer is: Samsung 840

    Cloudfire, sorry you're wrong. The best is the 256/512GB Samsung 840 PRO. :)

    how can you speak that the best is Samsung 840 (pro or not) ??? ... the drive is not even out yet, LOL.

    do you know that it took over 6 months in testing to figure out that the 830 is actually the best drive out there right now? Testing is still going on at xtremesystems.org where people write ~2.5TB/day in endurance testing on various SSDs.

    as for the M4 BSOD after sleep - various people have reported that, maybe worth googling for more info if you actually have an M4.

    Miro, I wasn't stating that the 840 was the best; I was correcting/teasing Cloudfire that it was the 'PRO' version that was tested/benched as best - not the tri-cell 840 that hasn't even been reviewed yet.

    As to that endurance testing? I'm not so impressed about that; simply writing huge amounts of data is not how a drive is used (and thus makes the testing a little out of touch with reality to me).

    I have already stated (another thread?) that the 840 PRO is not a drive I'll consider as tested (inconsistent performance from it making it a less than 'balanced' storage solution).
