Mushkin Callisto or OCZ Vertex 2 60gb

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Soooooooooo I work at UPS. And seeing as last week was the last week of peak (christmas season) I got looooots of overtime. That means a nice big check this week. And I think it's finally time to go SSD. Now, these are the 2 drives I am looking at. The OCZ Vertex 2 (119.99$ on Amazon) and the Mushking Enhanced Callisto Deluxe (129.99$ on Amazon). Both in the 60gb version. I'm wondering which one would be better. I know they're both ssd, and both probably amazing (coming from 5+ year old HDD's) but I love Mushkin for everything they make, but that Vertex is the ssd I see recommended more than any other.

They're both SF-1200 with little to no difference in performance. Go with the cheaper one.

I bought a vertex 2 60gig yesterday because it was cheaper. Like faraz said, they have the same controller so the only real difference is the price.
