SSD questions (sata 2/3 - a/synchronous nand) fow a new notebook

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
hi people, i'm from Uruguay so my english is quite bad

i have some questions about what ssd should i get


well, the problem is if that makes real world difference

- going for a ssd sata 2 or 3?

- synchronous or asynchronous nand?

- sandforce controller or it's better to stay out of it for it bsod problem?


i need the capacity of the ssd to be 160 gb or more so i looked at neweeg and found this

mushkin enhanced chronos 240gb, asynchronous

corsair force gt 180gb, synchronous
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233211

both of them are sata 3 and arround 270 dollars thats the max i can pay, which one is better??? for that money are other better options?


thanks in advance thumb.gif

Just grab the cheapest for the GB in this case (Chronos). You are going to be limited in a laptop anyways so the Asynchronous NAND vs Synchronous NAND won't really matter much. I'd stay away from SandForce personally, but that is up to you. You most likely will not have issues.

ok, thank you for your answer; but a new laptop will limit an ssd? why?

and it's a good idea to pay more for sata 3 or it's a waste of money?

should i also take note about the power consumption of the ssd? because i see some are in 1-3 W and others arround 0.2 W so for the battery life it's obvious less W it's better, but it's noticeable the difference?

Because there are power saving features built In that limit it...just lower benchmark reads/write.

Usually the sata 2 ssds are older models. I'd try to keep with current gen ones.

If you care about power use look at the intel 320 or crucial m4 or Samsung 830.

anyone?

do you think the corsair force gt 180gb is better than the mushkin chronos 240gb or they are on par (in every day usage - real world perf.)?

Corsair's reputation in the SSD market is above average, and between the two you chose, I'd go for the Mushkin, since they're similar in performance (everyday usage), and the Chronos is 240GB. You're not going to see a difference between the two. However, if you have that much to spend, I'd look at the Crucial M4 and the Samsung 830 within your price range. My reasoning is that if you later decide to move your SSD to a desktop, you won't be bottlenecked by anything. thumb.gif

Size for GB Mushkin is the best value. Also, Mushkin has great a great reputation as well. You can't go wrong with either company wise.

Though I still don't like SandForce drives and would rather have a Crucial M4 or similar instead. tongue.gif

On par for everyday/realworld use, plus the mushkin has more room for the same price.
