Probably the S599.
Hehe I pulled a fast one on you.

I have heard that the Microcenter 64gb is the same as the S599 and it's 5 dollars cheaper at 110 dollars. (was 100 not too long ago. :/) But what would I do if I needed to RMA it, would I just bring it back to the store? Or do I have to deal with ADATA?

I don't know. I guess that it would be best to just ask Micro Center.

Striking out the S599 and the Microcenter SSD which is the best out of that list?

Or are they all basically the same because of the controller?

Assuming that I never get those 25$ back from OCZ for the Agility 2 which of those would be worth the money?
Sorry to bring this old thread back up but i need some advice.

I was looking at buying the OCZ Vertex 2(E) 60GB and the 100GB, but i noticed that they do an Agility series. The only thing different is the IOPS.

Heres the question:

The Vertex 2 has 50000 IOPS, and the Agility 2 has 10000 IOPS. But does the extra 40k IOPS make much of a difference and what does the E on the Vertex 2E stand for? (Sorry for being so nooby)

Will i see much difference if i go for the Vertex 2 over the Agility 2? The SSD would be used for windows 7 x64 and some Program's.

So, you can basically choose the best price from any of these:

(this is intentionally in alphabetical order)
  • A-DATA S599
  • Corsair Force
  • G-SKILL Phoenix Pro
  • Mushkin Callisto Deluxe
  • OCZ Vertex 2

The reason why I put "Pro" and "Deluxe" in bold is because there's a plain Phoenix, and there's a plain Callisto. But the plain ones don't have the 50,000 IOPS spec. It's like the difference between the Vertex 2 and the Agility 2.

I think that everything else is just not worth considering, especially when looking for the best bang for your buck.
Sorry i cant answer your question any better than that, im an ssd noob too, just learning myself.

Peace.

post #19 of 20
I am running two kingston v now ssd in raid 0 and get around 400 mb read and 200 write, got half that with just one.

Just one will make your system seem more responsive, I know they are expensive but I will never go back to hdd for a OS drive

edit: just read the last post; I have heard alot of good thing about OCZ vertex
I probably would have got one but they were more then the Kingston at the time of my purchase
Yep

you will be happy with your vertex 2, those are the ones i am looking to upgrade to. i have been using the vertex turbo... hopefully i can join you in the vertex 2 world soon...

regarding the iops, i keep hearing that most people won't notice the difference. it has to do with the data channels the memory is accessed? but generally speaking, i hear it effects the random writes the most.
