This is also true, but more $$$ and no trim if I remember correctly. But it is definitely the fastest ssd for your money

The C300 had TRIM and better, more aggressive garbage collection over time. It also doesn't degrades over time. I know several people who have used it and it is the same speed as it was new, unfilled.

It does but to a point. But garbage collection keeps the drive very up to date, just not as good as trim. The trim on the c300 has the best type of garbage collection tho so it can keep a drive close to 85% unlike trim being closer to 90+%. This is what I have heard

Okay, TRIM and Garbage collection are two different things..that have more or less the same purpose. Most current SSDs now have I BOTH TRIM and Garbage Collection. The Sandforce drives and the C300 are just two examples.

The C300 has a more aggressive Garbage collection than the sandforce drives. That does not mean they have less TRIM or anything of that nature at all.

Ocz vertex 2 or C300. Really depends on the price difference and availability both will do the job.

The differences will be unnoticeable in day to day use.

Thread Starter 
I went to the CanadaComputers boxing day sale today and picked up a Kingston 64GB V100 Series SSD for $79.99.

They did not have a C300 but instead had a Corsair Force Series 60gb also for $99.99 plus $20 rebate and an OCZ Vertex 2 60GB for $109.99 plus $20 rebate. I just didn't want to deal with the hassle of rebates if I didnt need to.

I just figured the Kingston drive would still give me great performance and the most Gb/dollar. As this is my first entry SSD into the market I was not too concerned with brand or speed of SSDs. I was more interested in just paying the lowest amount, and upgrading to a much better SSD in the future when technology advances and prices come down.

Maybe a silly question now, but I didn't realize that SSDs were so small. Where exactly do I put this thing in my case? lol
