Thanks! smile.gif
whatever is cheaper imo.

Also, the 330 and 335 have 3yr warranty vs the 520's 5yr warranty.

So there'd be no real world difference in performance between the two, even when gaming? If so, then I'll get whichever is higher in capacity for the same amount of money. 240GB over 128GB would be better I guess.

Also, since SSDs' performance drops over time, would it be better to get a smaller drive and save money to change it when performance drops? Or will I be fine with a larger drive for around 3 years?

Thanks a lot for your feedback! I really appreciate the help! smile.gif

Gaming is barely a load on an SSD...What does gaming have to do with the miniscule difference b/w performance of drives? Plus, larger capacity drives perform faster than smaller capacity.

What performance drops over time? I have a few SSDs performing exactly the same as new for 2 years now. TRIM and garbage collection was made just to prevent that. Even if there is a performance drop it would either be too little to notice or so irregular that there is an issue from something causing it.

As far as I know about SSDs (which is very little), they are supposed to have lowered performance after a certain period of time. Guess I was wrong and clearly have to study more on this.
Thanks for clarifying that to me. I'll get the largest one I can get. Thanks! smile.gif

Hello.I bought today an intel 330 120GB as an external backup for my dslr (don't trust hdds when travelling).I thought that it Intel,so it should be a good option,apparently I was wrong! I have connected the ssd to the sata 3 intel port (drivers are the latest,no problem with my other ssd,vertex 4) ,but after some hours I saw bsod after many months!!So the ssd should have caused this problem...What's the matter with theese ssds and is there any fix?

I will try contact the retail shop that I bought it,and I will ask to exchange it with a vertex 4,which is the most stable ssd I had so far (not a single bsod)

Not really as a function of time but more as a function of free space (at least on modern SSDs with TRIM and good garbage collection). SSD performance tends to degrade as you fill them up that's why the bigger the better. tongue.gif

you can't say the SSD caused the issue unless you are able to diagnose the crash dump from the BSOD.

Look here for help on tracking down the cause of the BSOD: http://www.overclock.net/f/17986/crash-analysis-and-debugging

what was the code with your bsod? could be your cpu OC that is causing it.

Well,the code was 101 which translates increase vcore. But how is this possible? I am running this system for a year and had successfully passed 24 hours of prime95 stress and haven't seen a single bsod,until I installed the ssd.

lol, it happens. You added a new component and the once stable OC went unstable due to it. more parts = more stress. You need to redo your OC now.

I had a 24hr stable OC for a long time till it started BSODing on me. I finally didn't feel like redoing the OC so I run stock now.
