That's funny, I get annoyed when someone assumes everyone else is doing something wrong because they were lucky enough to get it to work.

I suppose all the people that were stable on 2.09 and upgraded to 2.11 or 2.13 and bsod were doing it wrong right? I suppose when they flashed back to 2.09 and are stable again, they accidently did it right?

I can guarantee that an M4 or a 510 will have a much better chance of being stable for the average person. That's really all that's needed.

I don't know too much about controllers, but I know that the SF-2281 is the newest one from Sandforce. I also know that the Vertex Plus is an old SSD, older than the Vertex 2, and that Vertex 2's run the SF before 2281. I've got a Vertex 2 and I have had no problems. I don't have the 25nm one, though. Got lucky. I thought Sandforce was ruling the roost prior to SF-2281? The Vertex 2 and the C300 were neck and neck for a while, I thought. The Vertex Plus isn't even a Sandforce SSD, though. I think it's still Indilinx. The smallest amount of research possible indicates that it's still on the Barefoot controller. And I guess this confirms it.

So, the Vertex Plus isn't SF. You said you want a cheap SSD and this is about as cheap as it gets. It won't be as fast as current generations, but I'm running a Vertex 2 on a non-AHCI SATAII board and it sucks. Faster than an HDD, yes, but so many benefits remain locked away. If you really want something to play around with this is your best bet. If by cheapest quality SSD you mean the cheapest SSD of the new generation then that's something completely different.
