Significance of Random Read (Vertex3/C300) - Page 2

post #11 of 19
I wanted to get the OCZ vertex 3 to replace my x25-m
but now i dunno if its worth the 300$
the c300 is 249$ now
wonder if the vertex 3 is 50$ better lol

Unless you are talking about benchmarking, I think there is a lot of validity to that statement. All I care about is what I notice on a day to day basis while using my computer. My C300 is exceptional and I couldn't be happier with how fast everything is. Maybe the Vertex3 is faster, and the data shows that it is, but I could never tell the difference. If you want the Vertex3 and its within your budget, then get it. I am sure you won't be disappointed.

Can't go wrong with a C300. Honestly any modern SSD will feel very fast. I have a c300 in this rig and a mushkin sandforce in my wifes rig. Can't say I notice a difference between the two. Both are very quick. Just because a drive is ~10% better in a benchmark doesn't mean you will notice it in normal usage.

This. In all honesty there is very little to choose between the Vertex and the Vertex 3 in everyday tasks - for most people doing what they do most of the time there isn't enough difference between them for you to tell them apart (and yes, I am talking about the original Vertx, not even the faster Vertex 2 or C300/C400). The benchmark numbers can be very different, but the actual day to day real world usage really is not that different (and I get to play with some VERY expensive setups, so I know what I'm talking about. Sadly I don't get to keep any of them...).

Pretty much the best thing to do with regards to an SSD purchase is to buy the cheapest drive in the capacity you require - that will almost certainly be the one that gives you the best value.

Well now I wish that I had bought the C300 when it was $199 on Newegg a few days ago. F M L

Thread Starter 
I found a thread here arguing the same things, importance of random read/writes and how/why the new crucial M4 (C400) Intel 510 and Vertex 3 are all lower in this region than their last efforts:

http://forums.anandtech.com/showthread.php?t=2152097

Did anyone notice that? All the new sata SSD's have lower random reads than their older cousins. Whether it be intel, crucial, or ocz.

i ultimately went with the c300, mainly because newegg had it for 200 after promotion code. otherwise i would've spend another 50 and gotten the vertex 3, since i got the c300, i notice some major improvements in games especially in titles like civilization 5, my load time was alot faster during each round.

data wise, you can look into the vertex 2 120gb for 200, that has a really high random 4k IOPS, around 50k i think. pretty sweet when you put it side by side with the vertex 3's lower 4k IOPS.

Basically all of them

Snappiness is what makes a SSD worth buying. Frankly, I don't pay too much attention to all those benchmarks. When I chose mine, I made sure that it had the sandforce controller and a good customer support, that's all.

In every day use, you won't notice any difference between most last gen SSds (C400, V3 or latest Intel 510), they are all snappy as hell and the boot is lightning fast. Maybe the writing speed will give you better install times but who cares about a minute difference for the installation of windows?? It's not like we do it every day

Personally, I'd go with the vertex 3. Not that it's better than the others but because I am very happy with mine (OCZ SSD I mean, I don't actually own a V3) Let's face it, not many of us could notice any difference between the latest SSds, except if you spend your time benching with ATTO lol Now that'd be a waste of time
