Intel or Crucial?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I know most of you are Crucial fanboys, but are Intel ssd's good too? I found one for $40 cheaper than an M4 with the same capacity.

Intel makes the most reliable ssd out there.

People here have been going M4 because it's been the best bang for the buck not because of some foolish loyalty to Crucial.

Did you take performance into account?

The Intel is probably sata II compared to the M4's sata III. I'd still go with the m4.

True, but Crucial isn't far behind, and with updated firmware the M4s are faster than Intel's current offerings, no?

That possibly could be exactly why I stated the M4 is the best bang for the buck.
