But just because I say I would not use them doesn't mean they die in one year from now. It is just the kind of drive I would not use for OS.
Things that use software to boost performance really make me nervous. I'm glad you put some logic behind my fears of the EVO. It's why I spent the extra money on the 840 Pro.
