[OS] Intel X25 160GB vs. Crucial M4 128GB

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I'm in a pickle.

I'm holding Intel X25-M 160GB and Crucial M4.

Which one do you think would be better for running OS?

Intel X25 for sure. Its probably the most reliable SSD ever made. Plus its more space. Speed is pointless really. As long as the SSD is fast enough speeds does not matter. Its Reliability and Space which matter.

I also have both... you really won't notice much of a difference at all. I had my crucial as my OS and my intel for games/programs.
