Just got talked into CONSIDERING SSD............. - Page 2

post #11 of 67
I think it's safe to say that by now, you know that the M4 is not slow and is a popular SSD. Just in case, another vote for the M4 from me. I actually have 2 of them, 128GB for my PC and 256GB for my laptop.

I have had no problems with my Corsair force GT and it benches at 555read and 505write. I don't have a screen shot right now unfortunately.

It is the most stable and way faster than anything you would imagine. 128gb m4 is 129.99 on amazon right now.

I'm guessing OP is only calling the m4 "slow" because its sequential R/W speeds are slightly lower than, say, a SandForce-based drive. (4K) random read/write is much more important for an OS/boot drive.

Here's another vote to the m4. I love my 256GB version.

Precisley. I am not that versed in SSD's so im not exactly sure whats good for what. My boot time is already 10 - 15 sec so if an SSD cant beat tat then i dont want it. But how would the vertex 3 compare to the M4, it looks faster. And what about dual 60gb RAID0?

What makes the M4 so good?

Benches 505 with imaginary data made up in Atto. Won't in the real world.

My vertex 3 max iops and intel 520 bench that high in Atto as well. But hit them with a real bench like as-ssd and it's a more realistic 200

Welcome to the real world of "incompressible data" Your drive does well with "compressible date though.

That 929 score looks pretty good. 4K scored looked a little odd. But great results.

O.P: If you really want something fast. Go grab a OCZ Revodrive 2 X3 240GB pci-express sdd then. But as mentioned the M4 is fast indeed. Thanks

My budget isnt that high, i dont feel like donating a kidney for 3 sec less boot times tongue.gif

So would the M4 be faster than all the other drives? Even V3? Im pretty convinced now that i want an M4 because it gives me 8 more gb.
