I am on the market for the new ssd. I finally realized that I can live on the edge with 120Gb. After I did my research here is couple of SSD's that I found ... Most important is reliability and only than performance.

Please try to explain why do you choose one over another one.

OCZ Octane 256Gb
Crucial M4 256Gb
Samsung 830 256Gb

Intel 510 256GB - I think it's over priced, for now reason.

The Octane is new and therefore unproven.

The m4 has been out for awhile now. Great performer and very reliable.

The 830 is also new and therefore unproven.

I'd be going m4 if I was you.

I'd jump on the crucial M4 also, the Octane looks a solid drive too but it's not known how reliable it is as yet. There's also the Corsair Performance Pro which i'm buying in the near future for my upcoming build which is mental fast and is reliable due to using a Marvel Controller.
