Likelihood to Recommend

Samsung SSD

The Samsung SSD is well suited for organizations/individuals who require programs that require larger amounts of RAM to respond quickly. I personally use my Samsung SSD to run the Adobe Suite, MS Office and even music programs such as FL Studio and its various plug ins. All in all, I'd recommend the Samsung SSD to anyone, but to those organizations/individuals who rely on speedy access to larger programs/files, this is the way to go.

Western Digital SSD

Anytime large amounts of data are needed for very quick access and standup, (no need to configure any new infrastructure like servers) a western digital SSD fits the bill. If guaranteed uptime with zero corruption is required, Western Digital SSD might not be the best fit. While corruption is very rare, it does happen and will take a little bit of time to correct.

Cons

Samsung SSD

No support issues what-so-ever with Western Digital SSD. This product is so easy to use and configure that there have been no issues that required support other than individual research (online). This product is very stable also, even if dropped, functionality has never been compromised. In 2-3 years of usage, not one major issue at all has been experienced

Alternatives Considered

Samsung SSD

Samsung SSD is a bit more expensive than other SSDs, but they have varying capacities at varying costs. Experience with the Samsung SSD has told me that it is a trustworthy SSD. Samsung is a trusted brand that provides necessary support for all of their devices. Originally, I bought the SSD for the brand, but the support has helped sell me completely
