Which SSD should I get?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, I am new here. Sorry if I am posting this in the wrong section. Just need a little guidance on which one should I get out of these four? I am not worried about the price, I just want to know which one is faster and will have no problems. This is my first SSD biggrin.gif


Here are the links:

Crucial M4

Seriously, you won't regret it. 90% of OCN will guide you toward this SSD, and it's cheaper than some every one of the ones you listed.

If I had to pick one out of these, it'd be the Vertex 4.

I always like to recommend the Chronos Deluxe from Mushkin. The Chronos Deluxe uses the SandForce SF-2281 with Toshiba Toggle Mode NAND. It is a very good combination!

here is a comparison between the Crucial M4 and the Chronos Deluxe:

FYI, this drive has the same hardware and is comparable in performance to the MAX IOPS version of the Vertex3 which goes for twice the price:

Well if this still was in stock, I'd recommend this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820167115&cm_sp=Cat_SSD-_-Intel-_-20-167-115

But since it's not, go for an M4. I'm not really a fan of (most) SandForce drives. So out of those I'd say get the Vertex 4. I just picked one up because it was cheaper than the M4.

I bought the Crucial M4 from buy.com for $100 a week ago and I can't be any happier.

Very fast so far, not problems at all, and easy to upgrade and set up.

In terms of reliability, everyone here says that it's on par with Intel's SSDs.
