SOOOO..... why exactly is the DELUXE version 80 dollars more? - Page 2

post #11 of 15
The m4 has 175 and 260 write speeds (128GB and 256GB respectively). This is why I went with the Plextor m3 256GB (360 write speeds), but I would not have passed up the m4 if prices were like they are now.

Edit: I actually bought the M3 because it had Toshiba Toggle Nand and a whopping 512mb of dram cache.

If you're fixed on Sandforce, I'd wait for a deal on a 2xnm Synchronous SSD (Mushkin makes none), like Kingston HyperX, Corsair Performance GT, Patriot Pyro SE, OCZ Vertex 3.
If you're not fixed on any of this, and this is what I'd personally recommend, I'd buy a Samsung 830, Plextor M3/M3P, Corsair Performance Pro, OCZ Vertex 4, or Crucial m4.

Edit:: I don't know where to throw Intel into the mix above, but they do belong there lol.
Edit 2: I agree with Sean. The prices are impossible to beat and Amazon has them priced similarly.

Only thing i am fixed on is having great read and write speeds, My current callisto has sustained read and write speeds of 270MB/s or so, i don't understand why people keep telling me crucial m4 when the write speed is a lousy 95MB/s which i probably get on my WD caviar black HDD.

Then get a Corsair Performance Pro or Plextor M3 Pro.

Btw...95MB/s is the rating for the 64GB M4...I get 107MB/s on my 64GB M4. The 128GB gets double that.

And post a screenshot of AS SSD with your current SSD and tell me what is lousy. wink.gif

Also, any particular reasoning for wanting more write speeds? As on a daily basis you will hardly notice a difference.

Here is a Crucial M4 64GB to compare your 60GB drive to.

I just like getting the best bang for my buck, thats all. I saw the cronos having 500+ MB/s reads and write for 119 bucks, so i became interested. Nothing seems to offer such read and writes at such a price.

Ok i just tested my ssd, and it gets nothing close to what is advertised... so.... why does neweeg put up these numbers no one ever gets?

Ok i added to the above post too for comparisons.

Best bang for the $ is the M4 without a doubt atm.

Like I said before they are putting up scores achieved with atto which tests with fully uncompressed data (you will almost never have that in real world use)
