IS that a real question? M4 hands down.

SandForce drives are trash imo and that one you listed is slow compared to others b/c it uses asynchronous NAND.

For more info I highly suggest you loo this over.

M4 will provide more consistent, higher performance.

arrggg...don't get me started on this again for the hundred time.....too much M4 love on these forums...why do i always feel like I am the only one that looks at this unbiased...besides Sean (tho in my mind i would like to think i pushed him a little more toward Performance Pro side...hehehe...)

See my posts starting from #177, page 18-19: http://www.overclock.net/t/1179518/seans-ssd-buyers-guide-information-thread/170

According to Sean: http://www.overclock.net/t/1179518/seans-ssd-buyers-guide-information-thread

  • Medium sized boot drive: (~128GB) - Look at the Crucial M4, Samsung 830, Plextor M3 Series, or Corsair Performance Pro. Performance wise I see it as Corsair Performance Pro/Plextor M3 Series > Crucial M4 > Samsung 830. Also, consider the Intel 510, Intel 320, and Samsung 470.
  • Large boot drive: (~256GB+) - Look at the Crucial M4, Samsung 830, Plextor M3 Series, or Corsair Performance Pro. Performance wise I see it as Corsair Performance Pro/Plextor M3 Series > Samsung 830 > Crucial M4. Also, consider the Intel 510.


I would buy this if I was in the market (which I will be in April): http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233227&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-_-RSSDailyDeals-_-na-_-na&AID=10521304&PID=4003003&SID=divuh6rlog6p

Not sure how this is relevant.
My C300 provided more consistent numbers than this Force 3 that I am using now. The asynchronous NAND slows it down big time.
