I'm really confused, i need SSD 128GB for my work 3D Graphics, i don't know what i the better in performance
i was decided to get OCZ Vertix 4 but i saw results of it when it's capacity is 50% or more full it's reduced to about the half, i'm thinking now in Crucial M4
What's the best to me?
Plextor M3 is an okay drive, reviews are great but I don't know. I personally have tested 3 drives, 2 128GB in RAID0 and a single 256GB. I didn't like the performance per dollar I saw. "This is my testing, it is very possible my testing is flawed. I plan to do some more test on them"
I would recommend the Samsung 830 with full confidence. M4 is a great choice too.
So, among your choices (each tier according to the article represents a 10% performance difference)
Vertex 4 (256/512GB) falls into Tier 3, 21% slower on average than tier 1
Crucial M4 (256GB) is also in tier 3, the 128MB model is in Tier 5, 46% slower than tier 1
The Plextor M3 128GB is in Tier 1, the Samsung 830 128GB is in Tier 3
The Plextor M3 at just over $1.00 per GB is a great buy for a Tier 1 product; Samsung 830 costs more and like the M4 is 2 tiers down. The Chronos Deluxe 240 GB however @ $0.83 GB is the lowest cost model in the Tier1 category. The 120 MB Chronos @ $185 makes no sense however, and the cheaper MX model doesn't have the extended long life hi performance toggle mode flash.
