Crucial M4 or OCZ?

This is what I'm leaning towards right now ... Crucial M4

But amazon has a sale on OCZ SSD's right now so I'm just wondering if I should pick up a cheaper OCZ or stick with the Crucial? Or if there's a better SSD out there...

Thanks in advance

  1. Samsung 830 has gotten great reviews and is in general fast and considered second to Intel's on reliability. Some of the OCZ drives like the Vertex 3 have good reviews for speed.

    The Crucial m4 solid state drive is popular with gamers and enthusiasts.

    Here is my standard recommendation:

    If reliability and stability is a major concern, then I recommend Samsung. Samsung was awarded contracts to supply Dell, Sony, Lenovo, Apple and other off the shelf brands with OEM versions of their 470 Series SATA 2 3Gb/s ssd's. Eventually the 470's were released for retail sale to consumers. There have been no major issues reported. The 470 has an absolutely stellar record.

    Then Samsung released their 830 Series SATA 3 6Gb/s ssd's as successors to the 470. The first ones were OEM versions for Dell and the other off the shelf brands followed by release of retail versions for consumers. The ssd's are Samsung's own design with their own components and firmware. It looks like Samsung got it right again.
