I'd never buy anything assuming there would be a fix for a known issue - especially an issue that the manufacturer seems keen to downplay. You never know when/if a fix will ever emerge.

Agility is the crappy sister of Vertex (basically, firmware caps the features and the NAND used is lower bin than that used in Vertex series). And M4 competes with Vertex 3. So, that makes it easy to pick!

Other?

Dunno, Newegg sent me a 10% off all SSDs promo so I figured now was as good of time as any to grab something for a boot drive with a few common apps/games on it as well.

Thoughts?
That is not a bad price for the Vertex2, I bought mine on 10/15/2010 for a grand total of $167.01 including shipping, and is going strong, 271MB Write, 283MB Read on a ICH10R chipset. As you can see I have written close to 2TB to it, 5129 hours of run time. Just showing how reliable my Vertex2 is as a reference.
