Hey everyone,

I'm in the market for a new hdd and I was thinking of going with a SSD.

I was thinking of picking up..

OCZ 60gb Vertex link

or

OCZ 60gb Summit link

Does anyone have any experience with these? Also, how does one update the firmware and such on these drives? (I heard it's best to put the newest firmware on these.)

Any suggestions are appreciated!
Thanks in advance!

Yea, I was going to go with the vertex, but then I can get the summit for the same price after MIR and it seems to be the faster of the two...

Hrmm..

I was in the same spot as you, and I decided to go Vertex...I placed my order just a few minutes ago, LOL!
The main reason I went with the Vertex is because it's a proven performer. I like to spend my money on things that I know will work, and I'll let others explore with new lines of SSD's. If I end up being wrong, oh well, maybe next time.

Yup, I'll be picking up the vertex after work. Went onto the OCZ forums to help make my decision, due to samsung not allowing us to flash the firmware on the summits.

Now I just have to learn all about these things, in regards to using TRIM and other things to keep it running great.

The vertex is a very nice SSD. Even without any optimizations it will perform well, and even better with them. You really wont find a better SSD unless you dive into the expensive waters of intel's $700 drives.

With the FW1.3 there is a program which they call garbage collector or nand launderer. How it workd is you let the SSD idle for a couple of hours and it automatically self repair to peak performance. Whats makes it great it also works in a raid array.
