Crucial C300 128GB vs OCZ Vertex 2

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I would like to purchase a new SSD.

I was thinking of getting the Crucial C300 128GB(Model number: CTFDDAC128MAG-1G1).

How is it like compared to OCZ Vertex 2 120GB and G.Skill's Phoenix Pro 120GB quality and speed wise?

Also, does it have TRIM support?

I was told there are 2 versions of the SSD, is mine the fast or slow one?

Thanks.

Hi.

All SSD support TRIM if you use it as single drive with Windows 7. I definitely go with the C300 over the others.

Okay, can I get more comments please?

By the way, I saw that the G.Skill/OCZ ones have up to 50k IOPS while the C300 has 60k read IOPS and 30k write IOPS. which is better?

90% of PC time use you are reading and the C300 is much better for that.

The Sandforce based drives have a higher write speed (265 vs 140), however for general use this really isn't substantial. The C300 reads around ~355 MB/sec when connected to a SATA 6 Gb/sec controller, and around ~265 MB/sec when connected to a standard SATA 3 Gb/sec controller.

On 'SATA II', both types of drive will have similar read performance.
Also, to reach the higher IOPS on the C300 it would be required to use SATA 6 Gb/sec.

I'm going to get P8P67 Pro or Deluxe, so I am guessing I have the SATA III covered?

beers, how is the SSD working for you? no issues with TRIM or anything I hope?

All integrated SATA 6GB/s MB solutions are crappy.
