...and just to add a little confusion, I vote for the OCZ Vertex 3 VTX3 120G, with which I have had no problems.

Truth is you will hear and read lots of comments about many of the SSD - buy what you trust. I am new to SSDs, so based my purchase, partly, on the fact that the [H] adopted it as their standard for testing, etc. Figured I couldn't go too far wrong and it would be fast. So far, so good...

The Intel storage software makes OS movement from an HDD to SSD so much easier. Nearly worth the price difference alone.

Hehe, we're going a bit OT aren't we? I'm very satisfied with my m4 and it's from a memory manufacturer itself like samsung and intel, too. All other brands are buying their memory chips on the spot market and thats why e.g. noone knows what's inside an OCZ Vertex 2 or 3 like we've seen when OCZ switched internally the memory but stays at the same model name: some lucky guys getting old memory which was faster and some bad luck customers get the new one which was slower. That OCZ issue plus the problems of Corsair and some other Sandforce based ssds let me decide to Crucial product.
For sure everyone can make his own decision coz we count to the free side of the world.

Back to topic: Some news about a newer BIOS adding some more stability? Normally my system works fine but sometimes i got some strange issues which reminds me about the "it's new, stupid" state...

The only area in which Intel 510 totally sucks is "random performance". That's the only thing that has held me back from going with 510. How much does random performance matter anyway in everyday usage? Is it a good indicator of how fast the drive is in real life usage?

Buy the 510 ... I'd trust utnorris and Ovlazek's input about this more than mine, and sorry guys but the others that have voiced opinions so far. I think they've had their SSD's the longest as well.

As for speed ... like utnorris said, unless you're running benchmarks you won't notice the differences, and as for Life Span, I read some guy say ... they're going to last longer than before you will most likely replace it due to newer / faster / larger / cheaper units coming out so don't worry about that part of it, as both Intel and Crucial have pretty solid units to choose from.

random performance means everything on a 24/7 OS SSD. IDk those C300s are still beasts.

Yes, i think we're making some kind of short discussion here. The SSD technic itself is far too new and for sure we're going to see soon much faster drives with much more GBs or even TBs of space for lesser money. DDR4 arises already with next Sandy bridge generation and there have been already some news from a yet unknown manufacturer about 1.6TB SSD called Smart Modular Technologies.

Some reference links to articles you might want to read concerning SSDs (be sure you check out the "discussion" links at the end of the articles, too). Ultimately, you will have to make your own best decision... I'm not going to tell you one is significantly better than another. Each of us here had our own reasons to pick the drive we did, and so will you. It will be interesting to see which of these drives does survives and provides the best value.

Final word on SSD as we are getting off topic, any SSD is going to be like an Indy car versus a Yugo when you compare SSD to a mechanical drive. Things just happen versus having to wait, even a few seconds will seem like a lifetime once you use virtually any SSD. Go with what fits your budget and is large enough to hold the OS and your main apps and you will not go wrong, simple as that. Also, a single drive will allow for TRIM to work, so consider that before getting two smaller drives and putting them in a RAID configuration.

here you can see some info about my Agility 3
when I got mine it was like 10 euros cheaper then the M4 so I decided to go with the Agility ......
---------------

Im feeling like we are in SSD thread so I will ask something that's actually about the Mobo ....

is it normal when I connect my laptop with the ROG cable it only shows CPU temperature
not core nor mobo or gpu .......
only cpu
