Buying an SSD tonight (Very limited on choices) 170.00 - Page 4

post #31 of 33
Good point,

I must add that the intel 510 series ssd utilizes the marvell controller as well.

The Marvell controller has proven its capability in many branded products. Intel 510, c300, c400 M4, corsair performance 3, and now the performance pro

TBH, I would only choose an SSD based on either Samsung or Marvell controllers. Sandforce is a finicky beast at best.

But when speaking of BRAND reliability or specific HARDWARE (ssd ic controller in this case) reliability, both Crucial and Corsair top the charts let alone both using the same proven reliable controller in both products discussed here.

To add:

My personal SSD order of interest when all things considered (Speed, reliability, ect...)

Corsair Perf Pro > Samsung 830 > Crucial M4

Really cant go wrong with any of those. All great products with good companies behind them.

The Micron C400...have got any info on it? It should have more NAND, but i haven't read anything on it...

I agree for that @256GB

But @128GB
Corsair Perf Pro > Crucial M4 > Samsung 830

The c400 is the M4. When crucial was aiming away from the c300 its seems they decided to create a new model line to differentiate the "updated" drive.

c300
c400
m4

are all roughly the same drive with the same marvell controller. A few firmware tweaks and model naming is all. A good read.

ok ok, tongue.gif

I'll have to flat agree with you there. I'm rather fixated on the 256gb drives as this is the segment I'm personally interested in.

I however refer to you on most things "SSD" Sean. Having read a lot of your personal points in my researching SSD's.
