SSD purchase - Page 3

post #21 of 38
I would recommend the Micro Center 64 GB SSD. Has the Sandforce 1222 controller and is only $99.99

For $200 you could RAID 0 them and have 128GB of pure bliss. That's what I did.

Wants the best SSD: Check!
Wants to give Maximus20895 something chocolate: Check!
Wants to show some benches: Check!
Wants to buy it at superbiiz since it has the best price and a coupon code of RUDOPH5 which might expire today, but don't worry they probably will have a new one like they have been doing for the past month: Check!
Ahh!

A bit over budget at $265 but its future proofed with 6GB Sata and 128GB is enough to run all the programs you will need from the super drive. NewEgg reviews are solid as well.

This is what I think I'll be getting myself.

Good luck!

How does this drive compare to the others out there like the C300 or OCZ vertex 2?

Tweak Town reviewed it and found out how they got 120GB from a 10 channel controller

http://www.tweaktown.com/reviews/368...ive/index.html

it uses half the NAND from an 80 GB and half the NAND from a 160 GB... genius... so they didn't have to disable 2 channels...
