What is the fastest SSD Sata 3 6gb\s?

There are plenty of Sata 3 ssds on the market right now, as well as many benchmarks showing totally different results, so I don't know which ssd should I go with.

    Basically any 240 or 256gb SATA III is going to be the fastest. Depending on the benchmarks, they all trade blows pretty equally. Here is one article over at Anandtech, and you can search others over there. He knows what he is talking about.
  2. "Fastest" depends on the usage: will you be doing serial IO, random database access, or massive random writes? If you haven't read the periodic articles on "best SSD for the money," have a look at this:,3088.html

    A lot depends of what you will be doing with your pc and the configuration.

    Will you be playing games or will you be doing professional work?

    Hey, some people play games professionally! So it could be both!

    BTW, my favorite unusual use case for an SSD is HD video editing, where the user puts the data and scratch file on the SSD, not the OS.

    I got a little carried away and got a Samsung 470 SATA 2 3Gb/s 256GB ssd. It was a lot more capacity than I needed. I wound up with Adobe Photoshop products and the digital images I work with on the ssd. Didn't bother with a scratch disk. It works for me. :D
