Samsung 830 or Intel 520 - Page 2

post #11 of 14
I would go with the Samsung 830. I've been using them lately in builds and am very impressed. There is also a little known 240Gb SSD drive that is comparible to the $430 Vertex 3 Max IOP drive using the same SanForce Controller and Toggle Toshiba NAND chips, but is only $274. The Mushkin Chronos deluxe 240Gb is a steal at the price of $274 for what you get:

Yep Mushkin Chronos Deluxe is very good and sometimes even goes on sale for $260.
Of course, as long as you don't mind Sandforce.

Also it's toshiba toggle nand, but not that it matters biggrin.gif

Good catch on the Toshiba. I don't know why I thought Samsung.
