~60 Gb Consideration

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Ok, I know there are a ton of these type threads, and sorry if this is quite redundant but, each question is kind of personalized. Anyway, I'd like a ~60 Gb SSD, and wouldn't like to spend any more than $120 USD. I've compared a few OCZ ones here, but I don't know what to think about each stat comparison or the reliability from the user reviews.

I also know Corsair is more highly esteemed as far as reliability goes, but their drives are more spendy and in different capacities. If someone could point out the best drive for reliability and performance overall, it would be greatly appreciated.

Edit: I will soon have a SATA 3 capable motherboard, so a SATA 3 drive might be more optimized.

I just bought it a week ago, installed windows 7 incredibly fast. Boots windows 7 in about 8.5seconds after the AHCI screen on my bios goes away.

If you really want a OCZ drive it would just require research, I'm not sure which drivers are good and which aren't but there are definitely some issues with them.

It's not that I want OCZ, I just know it's a really common brand with lots of customers. But the reviews from this crucial drive all seem good, which is more important really. It says 95 Mb/s writes, how fast is this compared to a typical HDD?

My crucial m4 on the intel sata 2 port says it does 265 mb/s read 109 mb/s write

my samsung f3 says it does 125 mb/s read and around 120 mb/s write

on as ssd benchmark.

If I had the intel sata 3 controller my ssd would be much faster, I could use the marvel port for faster read and write speeds but the 4k and 8k are slower.

This should probably be another thread, but I don't want to start spamming the forum with questions. I could theoretically squeeze out enough money for a 128gb SSD, and I saw these two. The plextor is wayyyy cheaper than the crucial, and I can't tell why. Both get great reviews at decent prices. Any thoughts about these two/other recommendations?
