Crucial vs Crucial?

What is the difference between

This, Crucial RealSSD C300 CTFDDAC064MAG-1G1CCA 2.5" 64GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)Link: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820148361&Tpk=CTFDDAC064MAG-1G1CCA

and this, Crucial RealSSD C300 CTFDDAC064MAG-1G1 2.5" 64GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)Link: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820148357

Seems like the second one has a higher 4k read/write at :60k/15k and is $20 cheaper. I know my untrained eyes must be missing something! :heink:

Thanks in advance!

  1. Drives me nuts when that happens.

    Other than what you mentioned I don't see any additional difference either.
  2. I noticed that one says backwards compatible with SATA II (the first one) while the other does not, or at least I didn't see it.

    Anyone else find something different?
  3. To the best of my knowledge all SATA III (6Gb/s) ssd''s are backwards compatible with SATA II (3.0 Gb/s) ssd's.
  4. That's what I assumed but I guess you never know. Thanks for the replys btw!
  5. The only names is just the 1G1 vs 1G1CCA...Any idea what that means, or is it just meaningless?

  7. Thanks a lot Techmo, it was bugging the crap out of me! So it's pretty much useless if you are starting from scratch.
