Recommend me a SSD

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
I am torn between a:

Corsair Force Series 3 120gb
OCZ Vertex 3 120gb
Kingston HyperX 120gb

I currently have an Intel 80g ssd and I need more space! Which would you pick and why?

Crucial M4 128GB
post #3 of 23
why not crucial M4? with the current firmware out (0009) their read speeds are quite close that you won't notice any real difference and definitely more reliable.

So it is as fast as the vertex 3? It seems to be in the same ball park.

This is a good article for you: http://www.anandtech.com/show/4604/t...-ssds-compared

Supposedly they think they have found a solution for the 2281 sandforce issues but they have yet to release a firmware update to fix the problem. Although it does not plague all SSDs, it does affect a lot of them. Sure the Vertex 3 is faster than the M4 but I would go for the M4 as of now because of the reliability but if you are willing to wait for them to fix the Vertex 3 and Force 3 drives then it may be worth it because of IOPs and write speeds.

I myself am waiting for Mushkin to fix their firmware to upgrade to the Enhanced Chronos 90,000 Max IOPs...sexy.

I just posted a similiar topic. Crucial M4 seems to be the clear winner so far. Good to know.
