what sean said, plus in my case i can image to the new ssd, boot from it, and run for a while to make sure there's no stability issues. if there are, i can always revert to the old one.

just read this review on the new vertex 4 - http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/vertex-4-everest-2-benchmark,3172-10.html

would you recommend that one instead?

just installed the M4 128gig fine.

Went to 'create system image' like sean said to clone the OS to it from the C300, and i'm getting an error 0x80004002 - 'no such interface supported'.

I did some searching and tried it with disabled AV and disabling the 'turn off system imaging' editor in local group editor, but it still doesn't work. tried running a DLL that's supposed to enable it as well.
Now updating win7 as well, but I doubt that'll solve it.

suggestions anyone?? confused.gif

you see this?

You can use acronis WD edition to make a system image. I prefer it over the windows software.

I just switched from a 64gb C300 to a 128gb M4 and it was a nice upgrade...

I now have the C300 just for games and the M4 for my OS thumb.gif
