Urgent Advice-2 SSD options

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Looking at 2 different SSD's the Crucial 300 and the new Intel 510 both in the 120 flavor. Vertex 3 could be nice but its out every where and I have never really trusted the OCZ name for reliability and with a SSD I want it.

So that leaves me with:

120GB INTEL 510 Elm $284.99 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-042-_-Product
READ: Up to 450 MB/s (SATA 6Gb/s); 265 MB/s (SATA 3Gb/s)
WRITE:Up to 210 MB/s (SATA 6Gb/s); 200 MB/s (SATA 3Gb/s)

or the

128GB Crucial 300 $229.99


Read: up to 355MB/s
Write: up to 140MB/s

Both are good names, Crucial 8 more gigs! Read speeds not too far off and a delta of about $80 after tax and shipping.

Which would you go with?

I'd personally go for one of the older SSD's (Crucial C300, X25-M G2, Vertex 2 and other SF-1200) or an Intel 320 (assuming prices follow MSRP or lower). I don't really care overmuch for the faster sequential read/writes that I'd go back to paying $2.50/GB. If I had $300 to spend on an SSD, I'd probably opt for a 160GB drive instead so I could install more apps/games on it.
