Capacities of 128g+ are rated for 72TB of write life from Crucial..
Same rating that was given to the C300 (although noted that C300 was a bit 'more conservative' of a rating).

vertex 3 would have been nice, but the price is too high, i went with C300, it does have decent write speeds of 355 mb, but the write speed leaves much to be desired, 140mb.... At least it's going to be read to more often than written, and for steam games its fine.

Looks like the Agility 3 is out now: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820227726

Looks like it is slightly slower than the Vertex 3 but $40 cheaper (at 120GB capacity).

@OP: What will you be using the SSD for? OS drive?

If you have a look at the Chart below, it shows the random 4k read/write speeds the most useful figures when choosing an SSD
note: Random read is used in 24/7 running of your OS

Sequential read is used for Booting your OS, but differences in boot times are negligable (approx. 2 seconds) and sequential write is used whilst downloading.

I see the Solid 3 on there as well for $10 less than the Agility 3.

Oh there you go. The reason for this "cool story telling bro" saying the C300 and M4 TRIM isnt really that effective, but all I'm seeing are 2010 articles describing the TRIM on the C300 and M4 as such. Nothing if Crucial had resolved this issue.

What? No, nothing's wrong with C300/M4 TRIM AFAIK. It's the thing that frees up memory again that's set to do so too late which makes the C300 and M4 bog down under continuous heavy loads. TRIM is working as it should.

Okay, I guess they've resolved that issue since those reviews mentioning "faulty TRIM" last year.
