Crucial M4 128 GB vs. OCZ Vertex 3 120 GB - Any Noticeable Difference in Performance?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys I just purchased a Crucial M4 128 GB off of Amazon for $129
(well, technically, $29.99; I got a free $100 gift card through research.fm tongue.gif)

I plan on cloning (or clean install, haven't decided) the contents of my sig rig's Vertex 3 over to the M4 and I'm just wondering if there will be any noticeable performance increase?


P.S. if you guys want to purchase the M4 through Beach Camera (reputable!) for $129, here's the link: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004W2JKZI

You may not notice a diff in performance. And clean installs are best cause it lets you start over without all those old program files that you still have from uninstalls and such, but you don't need to. A clone will do just fine. smile.gif
