The larger drives are OK, I don't remember sources but the smaller drives would not work well as a boot drive and/or they were just very slow write speeds.

I'm guessing the OP researched this as well because the kingston he mentioned was the only large SSD.

i can go for the C300 128GB its even cheaper than V+ 128GB but i trust Kingston since i've always bought ram dims from Kingston and never disappointed me

Well,that is a pretty big blanket statement,seeing as how Kingston uses several different controllers and manufacturer's.For just an OS drive,it should be fine.

Currently looking at the following SSD

Crucial C300 64gb for £91
Corsair F60 for £95
Kingston 128gb SSD now for £140
OCZ Vertex 2 60gb £95

Of the above which would you recomend going for? I could pick up an intel 40gb one for abit less but i dont want less that 60gb.
Having had Vertex2's previously and now C300 64gb the Vertex2's definitely pip the c300, in boot times, virus scans and in general faster. The c300 isnt much use to u on sata 2 anyway, so I'd say go wth the Vertex 2, im thinking of going back to one....

Sorry, somehow missed the part about OP not having a SATA III motherboard. In that case, I vote Corsair F-series.

Are you talking to me?

The first thing I said is it depends on the model!

cheers for all the advice,

actually the 128gb kingston i looked at was mainly due to price lol.

so its pretty much a choice between corsair and crucial atm.

Since there both pretty much the same price would it not be better to get one that supports sata3 which I can upgrage my mobo / get an add in card for over one that doesnt?

The crucial's write speeds suck. I vote Corsair. When the read speeds are already approaching 300, the difference between 285 and 355 is nill. But the write speed differences are HUGE, 275 VS 75....blah.
