And Samsung selling the HDD department has nothing to do with anything really. Samsung are just more focused on flash storage than mechanical hard disk. Micron (owners of Crucial) and Intel use the same NAND, Intel merged with Micron on that adventure b/c Micron has great experience in that field and Micron owns 51% of the share, but what does that have to do with the M4 vs the 830? Nothing

They are both quite similar obviously. And why do you say Seagate is total crap? That is like a HDD fanboy statement.

Both are good. After more reading if you ever plan on using Linux or Mac OS X head over to the M4 camp. It is one of the fastest SSD's out there, especially for a non-sandforce. Also Sean, you have pictures of different versions of AS SSD. Couldn't that change the scores?

Isn't the Intel 510 series equivalent to the M4 any way? In that case Crucial is waaaay cheaper and still faster I believe. The 320 is like way slower if I'm not mistaken.
