Crucial or Intel help me choose! - Page 2

post #11 of 24
Well it is being discontinued because the 34nm NAND is more expensive than the 25nm version on the M4. I don't think you need a lot a support on them neither.

The thing is, im looking at all these great new SSDs and they are SATA 3. However im only using SATA 2 and dont plan on upgrading my mobo and cpu until ivy bridge. So should i save money and get a SATA 2 drive? The OCZ Vertex 2 for example?

I am running Crucial C300 64GB (SATA III drive) with SATA II controller on board and I never had a second of buyer's remorse. Even if I got SATA III motherboard, I would never see a difference anyway. So I personally suggest get a SATA III SSD like Crucial Good luck!

Lol my mind i going from one to next all the time. Crucial seem like a solid brand. The C300 looks good. May go for that now. Is the firmware all good with no problems?

I have the c300 and no issues here. Its fast and solid and I use CS5 software and do a lot of web sites with mine. However I just use mine for Booting and CS5 and use a external to save everything on.

FUN FACT:

Crucial (Micron) and Intel use the same NAND Flash. The only difference is system level integration and specific product needs.
