The new Intel Sandy Bridge boards will have native SATA 6gb/s support.
The Marvell SATA 6gb/s controller that our mobos use is very disappointing and if you look @ what read and write speeds a SATA 6gb/s SSD SHOULD produce it seems to me that the C300 is a turd compared to what it should be.

I just bought a Vertex 2 from a guy. I was looking @ Gskill Phoenix Pro, Vertex 2, or the Mushkin Callisto Deluxe. This is just me though.
I don't know where you got your info about the C300 but you are very wrong. If you look around this site, you'll see benchmarks results for this drive are far superior. I'll take the Pepsi challenge against your Vertex any day

that said, you probably only need 128 GB if you have a secondary HDD.

This is simply not true.

On 6Gb/s interface, C300 is currently the best choice of SSD. With C300 drives the higher the density, the better. On 3Gb/s interface, SF-based drives have better performance than C300s.
At long last...

C300 is the best choice for Sata 6gb/s because its the only choice.
Im pretty sure its well known fact that C300 (140MB/sec) have slower WRITE rates than the SATA 3gb/s SSD (275MB/sec)

lol it even says so on the box ! C300- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820148348

Phoenix Pro - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231378

Cmon bro, chill out. Im not saying that the C300 is not the "fastest" atm. Im saying that SSD for SATA 6gb/s has not even had the time to develop yet. This Marvell POS controller is proof of that...
SATA 3gb/s SSDs have. All I'm sayin is that I would rather use SF1200 or SF1222 for now.

In SATA3GB/S (SATAII) the C300 ON the same ICH10R(Intel Native SATA3g) is faster in random(4kb) Reads, of upto 25-32mb/s for every size c300 vs 20-25 for the best SF. For 128GB and 256GB on the same platform the C300 is equal to sandforce random write speeds. Sequential are the speeds you see advertised, i am sure if you can do arithmetic you can figure it out. The C300 64GB is a tad bit slower in 4k write like 50-60mb(on marvell I get 50 so on ICH10R i woudl be close to 60)/s vs 70-80mb/s.

When you move to IOPS the C300 has 60K IOPS READ and 64gb/128gb/256gb for write IOPS is 15k/30k/45k respectively, the best SF right now is 50k/50k that is with tweaked firmware the agility 2 is SF based SF1200 with 10k read/10k write.

For OS performance 4K(Kb) speeds are MOST important. Not large file, large file is like installing(write), and loading(read).

There is a reason a lot of people who know SSDs get the C300 and that is because it has very good 4K scores on native intel ICH10R(intel platforms).

^yea that. Damn, I need to make a post about 4k speeds so people will stop telling other people the stupid sequential speeds...

So people who "know SSDs" buy a SATA6g SSD so they can run it through a SATA3g controller and gain around 10MB/s faster than a SATA6gb/s SSD on a benchmark ?

Looks like the difference is about the same no matter how you slice it.

I have to be missing something here because I don't the benefits other than a faster read via SATA6g

Wow. Nice people are in here sharing their thoughts and knowledge. I have made my mind and are going for a c300 256 GB.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-363-_-Product

It costs approx 661$ in Norway instead of the 559$ in US. But thats how it is.

I can see I know to little when I read the post above. But Im guessing that will change over time. Thnx folks for all helpfull posts

That's expensive. Try another site like superbiiz or somethign..newegg is killing you on the price there.

20mb/s-25mb/s vs 25-30mb/s

is a 20-17% theoretical increase in OS performance. but you wouldn't notice it.

I wonder why so much $$ Is it just exchange rate from US dollars ? Shipping process maybe ? Surely there's some kind of dealer in the motherland
