Best SATA 6.0Gbps SSD. - Page 2

post #11 of 22
Avoid Sandforce based SSDs since they're plagued with problems. I go with Marvell based SSDs anyway until Sandforce irons out the problems with their controllers. Going with Intel 510 or Crucial M4 SSDs are good choices.

On the other hand, i would take a look at Corsair Force series if i was you. Eventhough they use notorious nand controllers, just like OCZ, they are more likely to have that fixed asap. Besides those drives are lightning fast and they are a bit cheaper than M4. OCZ sucks, as a company in whole. Had really bad experience with PSU's, 3 of them to be exact. Never buying anything from them again.

I own both. 128gb C300 and a 120gb Vertex 3 Max IOPs and they both work well but if you have a intel board use intel ports the marvel ones are garbage, also I haven't had an issue with my vertex 3 although I was worried I would purchasing it, but the read/writes are like a dream!

Sandforce writes the firmware for ocz. Which means they write the firmware for Corsair, Patriot, Mushkin and whoever else uses the controller.

I Highly recommend the Corsair force 3 or gt if you need higher speed. And yes. the corsair force series has already recalled and fixed its sandforce controller issues. IF you do get one and it has the product code CSSD-F120GB3-BK its been recalled, call corsair and you will be sent a new one for trade.

Yes, and all those use slightly different technologies to get the desired effect, therefore the firmware for all those drives will be different.

This is bad information. The recall was only on the 120gb drives because of a different problem. All sizes of drives have the bsod issues as reported by users in the Corsair forum.
