X25-M's sold out, what RELIABLE SSD to buy now?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
The X25-M G2 120GB was my choice for 180 EUR, but its sold out now...

What should i buy? I want to have reliablity. No firmware, or driver issues.
Performance is secondary.

What controller type should i look for?

Crucial M4 120GB for 205 EUR?
Intel 510 120GB for 254 EUR? (dont really want to spend so much on it)

Or something else?

Crucial M4 is very good SSD. I don't think you will have problems with that one.
Don't go for OCZ, they got lots of driver issues.

Both the Intel and the Crucial drives you mentioned would do fine.

Stay away from the ocz drives at this point. Just search this forum and see all the firmware problems they are having with it.

Samsung 470. Custom controller, 0 issues, 100% positive reviews. When it comes to stability/quality, second only to intel, which is no wonder, as they are the only ones making custom controllers for their SSD's. Only downside is the performance, which is only very good and not great

Interesting idea. And even the price is good, around 180 EUR. Do they also have 3 or 5 years warranty?

Intel aren't mading their own controller anymore, they went w/ Marvell for 510 series (same as Crucial and Performance 3 series)
