Which one should I get? I want to be able to use my Intel SSD along side the new SSD. Throw me out some input please. Should I go 128MB? Thanks! smile.gif

Can't go wrong witih a Crucial M4 or a Samsung 830. What are you planning to keep your Intel SSD for? Games? If your getting a new SSD just for the OS and your most used programs, a 64GB one will suffice.

SSDs seem to keep coming down in price. Every time I check, it's another $5-$10 down biggrin.gif. Anyways, since you already have a 1TB Caviar Black for storage(and of course that Intel as a boot drive), I think a decent 64GB would be just fine. Get this Crucial M4 64GB or the 128GB as a boot drive(if you're willing to re-install of course), use your Intel for every other primary program that won't fit on the Crucial, and of course keep using the WD as a storage drive. Sounds good to me. thumb.gif Sound good to you? smile.gif. If you really want to look into other options as well, these two are great options:

Mushkin Enhanced Chronos 128GB- Yes, it's a Sandforce controller... it might not be as "reliable"... but blah blah blah... can't argue with the amount of reviews though, eh? tongue.gif Mushkin's a great company so biggrin.gif

or the 64GB version of the Mushkin

and

Plextor M3 Series 64GB

or the 128GB version

Hope I helped! biggrin.gif Oh, and of course, always look at the newest line of SSDs Samsung has to offer, and of course Intel's Elm Crest line. thumb.gif

Idea.

What if you grabbed another 80gb SSD and threw it in Raid 0 with your current one? Not for the speed, but for the convenience of a single 160gb boot drive.

http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p5197.m570.l1313&_nkw=x25-m&_sacat=See-All-Categories

http://www.google.com/products/catalog?q=x25-m&hl=en&gs_sm=e&gs_upl=1162l2842l0l3052l5l5l0l0l0l0l261l934l0.1.3l4l0&um=1&ie=UTF-8&tbm=shop&cid=714815879226029906&sa=X&ei=AtItT6iTGMb7sQL1ibDEDg&ved=0CJMBEPMCMAM

Also, question. What would happen if you used a different 80gb SSD in raid? Would, say, a 80gb 320 series SSD work with an X25-m?

Hi Sean. Things are good man. Just working and training. Haven't been on that much. I'm thinking of going with the 128 so it'll be my boot drive and house my important everyday used programs. thumb.gif

Cool, I've been bogged down with school so much this semester. lol

Yea, the M4 is a great drive and recently has a huge price drop. It is the fastest in overall reads out of any I have seen and is very reliable, you just need to update the firmware when you get it to 0309, fixes a silly BSOD bug lol.

Sean thanks man. I ordered the Crucial M4 128GB from B&H out of NY. Paid $181 including shipping. No tax which is nice! thumb.gif
