crucial M4 128 VS intel 510 120 VS Kingston HyperX 120

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
next month for win7 and games, think I get one of these instead of going from 24" to 27"

all sata3

anandtech has the m4 slamming the 510, but they both get mostly good reviews on newegg, with lots of reviews, also there are 2 versions of the M4 128GB sata3, but slightly different

now but they both have much lower max write speeds than the kingston, but anandtech doesn't have the 120GB size reviewed, it gets almost all good reviews on newegg so far but with way less reviews

their regular prices aren't the issue, I want the fastest for games and day to day, so is it the kingston

heres the 4 of them compared on newegg

the M4 will perform the best, regardless of the type of data that you put on it. Others rely on compressible data to be fast. not all data is compressible.

Yeah, just get this one, http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820148442

The sandforce controllers get owned by incompressible data...

I only started looking into SSDs any amount yesterday, and the troubles with that sandforce controller scared me away from the kingston, so unless thats fixed by christmas, I'll get the M4 128
