Hmmm, my wife has had on eof these older sandforce drives in her rig for over a year with no issues.

Or should I look at a sata III drive?

Maybe this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820226236

IDK, maybe the M4 would be fine for ya for $20 more lol. See if you can get a sale on one of the drives. The Agility 3 120GB was just $100...

Well the M4 is the cheapest option usually, but the Plextor M3, which I have, often goes on sale for pretty cheap...I got my 128GB M3 for $90 with some coupons and a rebate. biggrin.gif

Also, the Samsung 830 will be a good choice as well as any of the Intels. The 520 and the 330 are the higher performing Intel drives and the newest.

Hi kkorky, I know I am not Sean but I think Sean have posted the best of the best in his recommendation and It's pretty much the same one that most people are talking about and recommend. Ex. Samsung 830, Crucial M4, Intel 520/320/330, Vertex 4.

With SSDs falling in prices slow but steadily, it gets easier to justified buying one(two) of any SSDs(that doesn't give you a BSOD). Any that you buy will make a big difference in term of day to day performances. So just choose one that you like because you will not be disappointed either way, since you wont feel a big difference comparing top end SSDs, hell you probably wont feel the difference between low end to high end SSDs of today.

Just bite the bullet and be happy with it... Although If I could go back to last week, I would have bought the Samsung 830 instead of an Intel 520... hmmsmiley02.gif

Thanks for all your help Sean. I ended up grabbing a 128gb M4. The c300 has been so good to me I wanted to stick with Crucial. Hopefully the current issues don't affect me.
