And on newegg it shows faster speeds for the OCZ vs the M4 in the stats for write speed and what not.

Those speeds are with 100% compressible data. All data however is to a point not compressible. This benchmark shows the speeds of the drives where the data is not compressible.

Crucial M4 64GB:
501

OCZ Agility 3 60GB:
506

Out of the 17 SandForce drives I have had only six gave me no issue, the rest were returned and exchanged.
