SSD purchase advice

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Getting an SSD drive and I have a few questions.

First off I know I want a 120gb SSD so I was thinking of going with OCZ or the Corsair Force GT. However when comparing those on newegg I came across a Mushkin SSD with all the features of these SSD's but like 40 bucks cheaper! Anyone have any feedback on these?

Here are the links

Mushkin http://www.newegg.co...N82E16820226236

OCZ http://www.newegg.co...N82E16820227726

Corsair http://www.newegg.co...N82E16820233191

Thanks

Why this over the Corsair Force GT?

Crucial makes very reliable SSDs that use the marvell controller. their random reads and writes are very very good and for 159.99 it's a great deal smile.gif

Most people on OCN would recommend the crucial drive, it is very popular thumb.gif

I'm an Intel guy and I bought the 510, but with the firmware fix to the m4 and the price tag... it can't be beat for performance/price/reliability.

Does it use better NAND as well or is this just of the controller?
