Hey guys!
I need the best 60 gig SSD drive; looking around, OCZ Vertex 2 seems to be a good choice, thoughts appreciated!

Thanks!

Yeah, most people are going to tell you to go with the Vertex 2. I would either go with that or the G.Skill Phoenix Pro Series.

I have been looking for an SSD for windows as well for awhile now, and through all my research, I have found the Intel SSD's to be most reliable and higher quality than any other brand. I would say OCZ comes in 2nd place.

I would have gotten the Vertex 2 if my C300 wasn't on sale for $99.

Vertex 2 is good.
But, it's got some issues like high failure rate and some of them randomly being 25nm.
The 25nm ones are slower and has less capacity.
If you can get Vertex 2 in a local store for a good price, go for it and just exchange whenever there's a problem.

Otherwise, go for the C300.

I just got myself this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233124&cm_re=corsair_force_60gb-_-20-233-124-_-Product

I got it for it's large write speed relative to other drives. I have it sitting on my desk waiting for my laptop to come on Monday. I haven't seen many reviews or forum posts about it so I'll post once I examine it. I do hear a lot of people saying go for the C300, but I was put off by some reviews claiming large performance degradation.
