Im looking to buy a SSD drive for my comp to run my OS, games, and apps. It seems like Intel is the best, but they are alot more expensive than others. Im also looking at Crucial and Corsair. The only thing I read about Corsairs is that you cant update the firmware. Can you update the firmware on the Crucial drives?
think I would go for a 128 gig Patriort Torqx or an OCZ vortex before the Corsair P128 which is based on the Samsung controller. As stated intel highest performance with the torqx and votex runner-ups, but lower cost per gig
If 80G is enough for you, that's a good choice. If you need/want 120GB, grab the OCZ Vertex. You'll give up a smidge of performance and in return get a usable "C" drive with the free space available to allow the drive to continue to perform well.
