It's like this.
Buy the M4 and take no chance.
Buy the Vertex 3 and take a small chance knowing that if you do have bsod problems, there is no fix.

They said they fixed the BSODs in the newest firmware, and I heard new firmwares come out very quickly

Also looks like you have the vertex 3 in your sig rig.
I know you have games in them, but does it BSOD when gaming?

Staples has the m4 at 94, but with a 25 off of 75 coupon, it will bring the price down to $69

Is there anyway that staples can price match to Amazon, AND THEN still use this coupon? (the 25 off I have to buy online and it's online/phone only)

Since the 2.15 firmware, I've been folding happily 24/7 with the folding data being stored on the SSD and no problems. And copying from the SSD to itself, or from another SSD, I get 550 MB/s burst speeds and 370 MB/s sustained.

I decided to get the M4.

Yeah it's a bit more expensive, but with the staples coupon (hope it works) it will be way cheaper than the vertex.

Looking at newer benches, seems the M4 passes the read speed by a lot, but the write, not as much, but the the firmwares have fixed it. smile.gif

I was just going to post to tell you to get the M4 even though its more expensive.

You won't regret it.

Yeah man I know know.. also are you on the LATEST drivers, i believe its 0309, is the write speed fast now instead of 95MBps?

So you had any experience with this staples coupons?

So you had any experience with this staples coupons?

Have you compared a Vertex 3 60gb to a M4 in as-ssd?

You can do so here.

http://www.ocztechnologyforum.com/forum/showthread.php?95677-Low-Read-Write-Speeds-and-Toolbox-Detection-Failure-(60GB-Vertex-3-SSD)

Look at the as-ssd test bench. The 60gb V3 writes slower than the M4 with incompressible data. 75mb!

The 500mb writes you're thinking of don't happen in reality. They only happen with the Atto test bench using 100% compressible data which you don't find in the real world as all data is already compressed to a point.

They fixed the largest bug in the current firmware but some remain.

I don't run my V3 with the OS on it. The M4 had that job.

That being said, I'm now running an Intel 520 180gb with both my OS and Steam. I would get freezes in Skyrim every couple hours with it on the Vertex 3. I have not had a single one since putting everything on the 520. This backs up what Anand said in that link I provided for you.

If Staples doesn't work out you can try Micro center. Although it is against the "rules", I was able to price match Newegg and use the $15 off coupon at Micro center. You should be nice to the cashier and kindly ask them to ask the manager if you can do the same as it varies by item.

Yeah I have that 15 for Micro as well.

Staples better deal!! But I will find out tomorrow!
