Crucial M4 128GB & Intel 510 120GB Opinions - Page 7

It would be great that's what I find here is a bench comparing the different ssd:

Thanks for the videos moonmanas, +rep!
Before I made my purchase, I read a general review of various SSDs on HEXUS.net. They compared the Crucial M4 128GB to the Intel 510 120GB, OCZ Vertex 3 240GB, etc, etc. The 240GB version of the OCZ Vertex 3 is indeed faster than the 120GB version, simply due to having more NAND chips on it (better for parallelism). Even then, the OCZ Vertex 3 could beat the others simply in sequential operations in ATTO, which are the numbers OCZ use to market their SSDs (not surprisingly). The SandForce SF-2281 controller was king there. For everything else, the benchmarks were better with Crucial's offerings, even more so than Intel's. The conclusion was that in real-life scenarios, the Crucial SSDs seem to offer better overall performance than OCZ SSDs. That coupled with the fact that OCZ Vertex 3 SSDs are currently very, very problematic, I couldn't resist the Crucial M4 SSD. I went with the M4 instead of the C300 simply due to the price being great and the M4 being newer. The reads speeds are reportedly higher but the difference is probably negligible to the human eye at this stage.

I simply went for the C300 128gb due to more nand, after the poor performance i had with the vertex3, which has less than the original vertex2. And when I went on OCZ website asking why this here vertex3 is taking about 9 seconds longer to boot windows and over twice as long to do a quick avast scan then a vertex2, I wasnt happy with the evasive answers I got having just paid £210 for the thing!

I didn't really like reviews I read on ANY of the new breed of drives where manufacturers skimped on nand and told tales as to why they did so, they did it to save money on what are already overpriced drives, a couple of chips plonked on a bit of circuit board, you can get sound cards for a few quid that are just that, a couple chips plonked on a bit of circuit board LOL!

Also just WHY should a 60gb one cost £100 and a 400gb £1200+

Hahahaha you're so right. The Vertex 3 120GB was a big disappointment in performance, especially coming from a Vertex 2E 120GB prior. I find most answers given by OCZ on forums are evasive, to be honest. The price of a 400GB+ SSD is truly, truly INSANE.
