Do you guys think that the Vertex 4 256GB Max IOPS is worth my money?
Right now Newegg has it on sale for $199.99 with the coupon code:
EMCNDHB35
here:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I've heard bad things about OCZ's firmware and wanted to know if it is fixed in the Vertex 4 and about reliability.
And also how it stacks up against:
-Mushkin Chronos Deluxe
-Samsung 830
-Intel 320
-Crucial M4


Thanks :)  ;)

That's not a Max IOPS drive. The Max IOPS is just on their Vertex 3 series drives.
It's possible that OCZ may release a Max IOPS version later this year for the Vertex 4 series.

The Vertex 4 drives do not use the SandForce controller so there's less problems regarding reliability. But if you buy the drive you should still make sure the firmware is on the latest version before you install your O/S on it , just in case.

The performance of the Vertex 4 is better than the 3 drives you listed. Don't think there is any drastic real world difference though.

You think it is worth purchasing over the 3 other drives?

The M4 is $30 cheaper than the Vertex 4 on Newegg.

Kind of a tough call, but personally I would go for the Vertex 4.

Really???
I thought the M4 is ~$210?
The Vertex 4 on sale is $199.99 :)  ;)  for 256GBs.
