Battle of the SSDs: Intel 330 vs Samsung 830
I recently purchased an Intel 330 Series 120GB SSD in order to improve my ageing PC’s performance. My post about migrating an existing Windows 7 installation to an SSD was based on the installation of that new SSD. At the time, I mentioned some issues I was having with waking up from sleep/hibernate on the SSD. The stability issues gradually became worse, resulting in the following intermittent problems:
- The PC would sometimes blue screen and restart during shutdown.
- The PC would sometimes blue screen and restart following fairly long periods of usage (after 2 or 3 hours).
- Filesystem index corruption was detected (and fixed) on C: by Windows 7 chkdsk.
- Resuming from sleep/hibernate would sometimes result in a blue screen and restart.
