On the market for an SSD and want some opinions.

I am between waiting for the new Intel 330 120GB SSD (140 Euro) or between the following SSDS, please advice :

OCZ 120GB Vertex 3 Series SATA3 = 152 Euro
Corsair Force Series GT 120GB SATA 3 = 150 Euro
Intel 520 Series 120GB = 177 Euro
Samsung 830 Series 128 GΒ = 163 Euro

This SSD is going to be installed on a SATA II board so speed isnt a concern i just want a problem-free SSD which i dont have to firmware update every couple of months.

+1 for rolli.

The samsung is quite reliable, plus a little cheaper than the intel one at your prices. IMO Samsung 830 reliability = Intel 520

If you are looking for reliability then Samsung, Intel, or Crucial are the best brands. If speed is not as much of a concern then look for a drive from one of these 3 manufacturers with the best $ per GB ratio. Based on your list it appears the Intel 330 is your best value where you live.

Intel and Samsung are the two brands I normally recommend.

You also might want to consider the Crucial M4.

I will just take the cheaper Intel or Samsung onces 330 Series comes out, there hopefully will be a price drop. Not too excited about the new 330 as it uses the Sandforce that Agility etc uses. I am going for a Tier 5 or upper SSD. Thanks for the responses.
