Hello kind persons.
About 3-4 months ago, I have bought an 80GB Intel Postville X25-M G2 SSD for my PC.
Now I want another one for my Laptop.
Actually I am thinking of putting my old Intel to the laptop and get a new one for my PC.
Since yesterday I have been strolling from one internet shop to another...WOW...many new SSD are already there....I don't know anymore which one is good...
but I assume the new ones are faster than the old ones.
The Chart on Tomshardware is way out-of-date...
I need something fast but also reliable, about 50-80GB and under €200 (I think €200 is about around US$250-270).
Can you recommend me 1 or 2 SSDs to narrow down the selection?...
OCZ Vertex 2, Agility 2, Crucial C300, Corsair F60, G.Skill Phoenix, Kingston V+, and many more...even WD has now SSDs....
I am totally confused here...
Thanks in advance.
OK...after some research I have narrowed down to some options..
Here it goes :
Corsair F60 60GB
OCZ Vertex 2 64GB
OCZ Agility 2 64GB
Crucial C300 64GB
G.Skill Phoenix 60GB
From this point, I am relying 100% of your opinion.
Which one should I get?
Well I have also taken a look at Crucial C300, it has faster reading speed than OCZ Vertex 2, but the writing speed of a C300 is just horrible.
I know reading is more important but I just can't ignore writing.
It seems OCZ Vertes 2 is the correct choice.
Thanks very much guys.
I will order an OCZ Vertex 2 tonight, but not planing on RAIDing,
No money for the second SSD ^o^
Votex-2 = good choice. (Foscooter - thanks for the plug) Do not have, but benchies look good and have not seen any negative comments. Currently have Intel G1, Intel G2, Patriot Torqx and WD Blue (Have not used the WD yet).
Here's a good review. Compares Intel G2, Vortex-2 and C300 (C300 - Using Sata6 & Sata3) http://www.anandtech.com/show/3812/the-ssd-diaries-cruc...
Added - the 50 and 60 gig are the same, just that the 50 has more "reserved space" But I seem to remember an articale which indicated that under normal use - not really an issue - so go for the 60 gig
