Hi,

Im about to buy a Crucial M4 64gb SSD but I've just seen the OCZ agility 3 which the website claims is faster and a fair bit cheaper. is it worth the saving or should I just get the Crucial?

You will not notice any difference between the two in real use, benchmarks may differ but most ssds deliver the same real world performance.

Read THIS great article on the subject.

M4 is faster than Agility III - Have Both. Pair of M4's in laptop and a pait of Agillity IIIs in I5-2500k Desktop. Pulled the OS + program agility IIIs and replaced it with a Samsung 830. As Realbeast stated, in real life not a big difference - But my VOTE goes to the M4. Ps Newegg I think has a sale on the Samsung 128 gig 830 - Approx $185 w/promo code EMCNHJN24.

Do NOT use Sequencial read/write performance as very misleading and does not translate well into performance for OS + program SSD.

For what it's worth my M4 and Samsung 830 both beat my agillity III by approx 60% (in overall AS SSD Score). Samsung 830 billed as most reliable of the three, Agility III wins the title of - You quessed it - the most probmatic.

thanks, Im from UK so can't buy from Newegg. I'm going to stick with my original choice and get the M4 I think. I checked out the Samsung 830, but it costs even more than the M4 and I was looking at saving money!

thanks for your help guys

M4's are a fine choice, As stated have a pait in my laptop and they are working great.

Enjoy.

My Wife is English, so understand the cost diff.
