Hi,

I looking to buy a ssd but can't choose between these two :

https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/product/gqNv6h/micron-1100-2tb-25-solid-state-drive-mtfddak2t0tbn-1ar1zabyy

https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/product/dQ66Mp/samsung-860-evo-2tb-25-solid-state-drive-mz-76e2t0bam

Right now on my computer i have 750 Go/1To taken. my games take only 100Go, rest are for my programs code and some others.

Do you have any idea, if there is big change between the two?

The main difference for SATA SSD's is not speed (these two are about the same) but write endurance. If you want something to last a while, Samsung's SSDs are tried ant true, combined with familiar customer support. However I can't say it's worth that extra chunk of money. The Micron one is a full $100 cheaper ($112 with Canadian sales tax).

Don't forget that Micron owns Crucial

That particular Micron unit has relatively slow write speeds for an SSD. It's perfectly fine in a gaming computer. If you're doing photo or video editing, or something else that is write intensive, you might want to pay for the Samsung.
