Upgrade from a 5400RPM to a SSD? - Page 3

post #21 of 38
Honestly just go for the cheapest you can find thumb.gif, you're not going to notice any difference between them tongue.gif, and any SSD is a mind bending improvement over a HDD

I've read in the past there were issues with the SandForce SF-2281 controller in the SanDisk. I dont know if they are still a problem. But for 79.99 it's pretty darn cheap.

Be sure to get a reliable one though, like someone else said: m4, 830, or intel. thumb.gif

Thanks! I was comparing the one that you liked(Agility 4) with the one that Sean Webster posted(SanDisk) and it seems like the SanDisk one is better in terms of specs. Maybe you guys could tell me which one is better since you guys seem to know more about this stuff.

here are two reviews from the same site so the results are comparable. the SanDisk isn't the same size but you can see how it compares to the 256gb Vertex 4 and the review of the Agility includes results from the 256gb Vertex 4 as well.

Go for the Crucial M4. I did quite a bit of reading into the various ones out there and the M4's seem to be right up there in terms of quality, performance and definitely in customer support. No they're not the fastest drive out there, but they are one of the faster ones.

The 128 GB is on sale on newegg.ca for $109.99. http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820148442

But like it's been said, just get any SSD and you won't be disappointed. Unless it's DOA... Then you'll be disappointed wink.gif
