Intel+Sandforce, recommended?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I made the mistake to sell my Crucial M4, then my Mushkin Chronos died me due to the infamous Sandforce glitch, so I'm in the market for a new SSD. I've been eyeing the Intel 530 240GB and the Samsung 840 EVO 240GB. The only thing that scares me about the Intel SSD is the Sandforce chip. Is it stable enough? And, what SSD would be the best to upgrade a crucial M4?

The Intel SSD should be solid (I do have a couple of Sandforce Intel SSDs). The Plextor PX-M5P series would also be a good choice against the EVO and Intel 530.

Truth is the M5P (which all retail sets should have the extreme firmware) is up against a 840 PRO, not EVO tongue.gif

Bad wording on my part. Didn't mean it to be they are on the same competition level. The M5S is probably closer to the EVO.

It is. Best of all the Plextor SSDs have Intel-ish reliability in real world use
