by better he means faster, the m4s arnt any less reliable. i would ge with a crutial m4 128gb if you have the money. i would suggest atleast 90gb of space. sandforce dosnt always = bad. intel uses them, kingston, corsair isnt unreliable by any means. its just that there have been many firmware problems (witch didnt effect intel, who uses patched firmware) and the biggest sandforce maker, ocz, has had drives failing right left and center due to poor build quality. sandforce is like amd - certin lines can be good budget options. if you have the money, there is no reason to not go for an m4 or 830.
