I was pretty set on getting the Corsair Force Series GT, then I read some benchmarks at PassMark:

http://www.harddrivebenchmark.net/high_end_drives.html

The Mushkin Enhanced Chronos Deluxe ranks considerably higher then the Corsair on PassMark's benchmark list. However, a lot of reviews on NewEgg are saying that the Mushkin Enhanced Dulexe is unreliable. Oddly enough, the reviews saying that the Mushkin is unreliable is largely for the 240gb edition, but the 120gb edition seems to be reviewed pretty well. The Corsair Force Series GT seems to have glowing reviews all around. Either way, I am trying to decide between the following:

I can't really tell the difference between the Mushkin 240gb deluxe and the Mushkin 240gb (the non-deluxe seems to have better ratings). Any clue why the 120gb would have so many less reviews complaining about reliability?

I am open to suggestions for other ssds within a $350 budget. Fast read and write speeds as well as reliability and ease of installation are a must.

Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks.

as a proud owner of two Chronos Deluxe, they are awesome.

The Deluxe are based on Toggle mode flash, which is the best
