My main storage is a Western Digital Caviar Black 1tb 7200rpm, but im looking for something alot faster to install my OS on (Vista ultimate 64bit). I really have no preference when it comes to brand name, and im looking for speed, not quantity. By this i mean that if there is a 100GB ssd and a 40GB ssd for the same price, but the 40gb is faster, then i would go for the 40gb one.
Can anyone recommend me a very, very fast SSD with a max price of $200? (if its really worth it i might go higher).
For MTBF, "failure" means the drive stops working, period.
MTBF is different than "reliability", which is usually measured as the number of read failures per bits read (typically 1 read failure per 10^14 or 10^15 bits read). The drive keeps working after a read failure, it's just that the data in that particular sector is toast. Read failures are not the kind of failures considered in the MTBF specifications.
Yeah ive been looking at that one for a bit, heard good things about it- plus its not too expensive (compared to others).
But just out of curiosity, what is MTBF?
Mean time between failures.
I just ordered my x25-m g2 after ordering from 4 different sites over the past week where initially I was told it was in stock and then they renegged. All of them (I wouldn't pay 312 for newegg just because they have a good handle on supply/demand. Anyway I ordered (successfully) from ZipZoomFly for 280 - 30 MIR yesterday. Then today the price changed to 260-$30 MIR so I emailed them to complain and ask for a refund of $20 as it hadn't even shipped out, without any real hope of success. Surprise, surprise, they gave me $20 credit towards my next purchase. Way to go ZZF
