Installing OS: Crucial C300 or Agility 3?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys. I currently have two SSDs, a 64 GB Crucial C300 and a 120 GB OCZ Agility 3. I wanted to know which would be most suitable as a boot drive.

Crucial C300 should boot faster and has faster 4K reads which matters more in the OS, I don't really recommend the Agility 3 myself.

If you want you could test out both and see which you like better tho.

For boot , I would go with the Crucial C300 because Crucial drives are known for their stability. I don't know about which one is faster or which one you would like but OCZ drives have had some issues and the C300 is a great drive in its own respect. Don't get me wrong, the Agility 3 is a great drive too but for reliability I would think the Crucial drive is better because the Micron controller is a little more stable.
