the prices for the m4 just dropped to 99€ for the 128gb and 199€ for the 256gb version, so they appear to be quite a bargain. my question: does the 256gb m4 still perform a lot worse than the smaller one or the competitors, or has this been fixed somehow via a firmware update? because id rather get a 256gb ssd while im at it.
for comparison, here are the current prices for the main contenders in 128 / 256gb (as far as i understood):
ocz vertex 4
143€ / 283€
corsair performance pro
158€ / 273€
151€ / 280€
125€ / 245€
100€ / 200€
prices from german online stores btw. im not really in a hurry to get an ssd, but id say in the next few weeks id like to decide. itll be OS and some gaming, i dont care how fast stuff gets copied manually from/to the disk, all im interested in is quick bootup times and fast application/game starts. so i guess writes dont matter too much(?)
thanks a lot in advance for some hints.
