"The Marvell 9174 is the same controller Micron uses in its C400 and the same controller in Corsair’s Performance Series 3 SSDs. In fact, I recently received a Corsair P3. Pop off the lid and you’ll see the very same controller Intel is using in the 510:"
I realize this is an older thread, and has been necro'd, but I wanted to correct this information.
The 320 and the Crucial M4 do NOT use the same controller (not sure about the NAND.) The 320 uses a controller made by Intel (almost identical to the G2 Intel series) and the Crucial uses a Marvell controller.
This poster is confusing the Intel 320 and 510 series. (The 510 uses a Marvell controller)
Olrait: I doubt OCZ has sold more SSDs than Intel, but I may be wrong. Either way, a percentage is still a percentage. And from everything I have seen - Intel drives are heads and shoulders above the rest in terms of reliability.
