Obviously, the 2 drives are significantly faster than each other compared to what they are writing. My question is what 'normal' size do computers write at? 2KB, 4KB, 32KB. I think that would help me end my decision.
I use my computer for light gaming, Internet and want to do some video and photo editing down the road.
I think that since Intel is such a powerful force in the computer industry I do think they get the better parts such as the nand flash and if you notice they don't usually offer rebates and fire sales. I think they go by quality and not so much quantity and that's why they can offer a five year warranty. That's at least 2 years better than the Samsung and I don't remember seeing anybody else even that close. Right now I have the Intel 520 Cherryville 240gb in my cart at Newegg , couple more days and it's mine.
