Hello guys. I just ordered this laptop and it should be here by Friday. I want to put a Samsung ssd in for the OS. Which 250 gb ssd should I go with? The 840 evo or the 850 evo?
I've gotten out of gaming for about 2 years and I'm confused about the m.2 ssd. I know they will work with the ch71 but it would need the caddy. Thanks for any help, I really appreciate it.

Well from what I'm seeing there isn't much difference in the price of the 840 and 850 so go for the 850, I'll let others discuss M.2 SSD

Thanks for your reply Clint! I went ahead and ordered the Samsung 850 500gb.

Yep I'm running two of them 256 and 1 TB they 1 TB was probably a waste of money, I just wanted it.

Awesome! Can you recommend a good cloning program to use? I'm going to use the 850 for the OS and games and the 1tb hdd for pictures, music and storage.
