So read and write is what I am looking for mainly. Thanks.
Which read/writes? Random or sequential? A RAID0/10 set up with F3s,etc can do about the same sequential read/write as a SSD.
I don't know. I was just replying to foscooter who stated reads/writes are important, so I was looking at the sequential speeds.
I mentioned the difference in random speeds for the Agility 2 and the Vertex 2, and the Vertex was recommended. An article I read on Anandtech mentioned higher numbers here is better, so I guess that is what differentiates these two drives.
Again, I really am not that well versed in all this yet. Thanks.
Based on what you originally asked, the link you provided, and other websites, I just picked up an OCZ Agility 2 60GB SSD for my other rig. Works great!
It has the SandForce1200 controller, too.
I will post benchmarks once I'm done installing everything, as I got sidetracked.

Buy the Samsung 64GB SSD drive for sale on NewEgg today for $114.99. It's got much higher performance than the value drives from OCZ and Kingston. And Samsung, unlike the other manufacturers, makes the flash and the controller. Most source their flash from Samsung and add 3rd party controllers.
^ What's your point? Show me a single benchmark/testing where the Samsung controller beats the Sand Force 1200. The Vertex 2/ Agility 2 are NOT value drives. They are some of the highest performing drives out there. They are only beaten by some of the highest end Enterprise SLC based SSDs.
