OCZ Apex?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hey guys i need a relatively large ssd however they are very expensive so i was looking at the OCZ Apex 250gb. I am not after the best ssd on the market just something that has all the standard features of a good ssd that will get the job done.

My other option was a patriot inferno san force 240gb for $60 more than the ocz so please give me your thoughts.

Thanks.

End of Life is actually a specific term to show that a product is discontinued and no longer being supported.

The apex is $460 while the patriot is about $505

I found a review on the apex 120gb version http://www.hardwarecanucks.com/forum...sd-review.html however i dont think the apex is san force based so maybe the patriot is more appealing.

What about the Sandforce drives, like the Mushkin Callisto Deluxe, OCZ Vertex 2, Corsair Force, and the G.SKILL Phoenix Pro? How much do those cost?

The patriot inferno 240gb is a sanforce based ssd which i can find for $505 (usual price in my country is $550-600 for that drive at most places so seems like good price)

for comparison a 240gb vertex is $615

True, but the reason why I didn't mention the Inferno is because its IOPS spec isn't 50,000. I don't know how big of a real-world difference this is, but I've seen people say that they can feel it when comparing to a drive such as the Inferno, or the OCZ Agility 2.

Ahh. well as i said this might sounds weird but my particular use for this ssd requires capacity more than the best performance. I would much rather a "slow" 250gb compared to a say an ocz revo 120gb. Also i cant afford anything too much over $500 really

Then I would say that any Sandforce drive should be a better value over older drives because the Sandforce controller is better in many ways. Plus, they're the mainstream solid state drive right now as well which may further help find one at the right price.
