240/256Gb SSD Advice

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Today is the day that my Mushkin Chronos Deluxe 240Gb finally gave up on me and died. I tried different ports and computers and It wouldn't recognize it. So I'm left looking for a replacement for the Mushkin Chronos Deluxe.

My question is which of the following SSD's should I order to replace the 240Gb Chronos Deluxe:

1. OCZ Vertex 450 256Gb
2. Samsung 840 Pro 25Gb
3. Another Mushkin Chronos Deluxe 240Gb
4. Corsair Neutron GTX 240Gb
5. Corsair Force GT 240Gb
6. OCZ Vector 256Gb

Thanks for the advice. How does it compare with the Vector 256Gb and the Neutron GTX 240Gb. I've only seen the XBit Labs review but it seems most of the time the 840 Pro is on top (in that review anyway).

Here's the review:

Edit: Seems the 840 Pro is the best choice:

I've placed the order for the 840 Pro. Thanks for the suggestion.
