Cheap OS SSD Help me make a choice

Hi, So I've decided to see what all the fuss is about and I'd like to get a cheap 60Gb SSD just for my boot drive (OS)

I've got a few bucks lying around so I've narrowed it down to a few choices:

Adata S510
Corsair Force3 Series
OCZ Agility 3 Series
OCZ Petrol Series
Intel SSDSC2CT060A3K5
Kingston SVP200S3
Corsair Accelerator Series
Adata S596Turbo

The store I'll be buying from doesn't stock much else (I hear tell of crucial m4's and other dark materials) and I live in South Africa so newegg etc. is unfortunately out of my reach :P

I'm not looking for the latest and greatest but something *stable* (I do audio *work*) would be nice with a lil extra performance as opposed to my mech HDD's. I'm doing this purely coz I'm intrigued :)

  1. This was cheap too: Supertalent FTM28GL25H 128Gb - Yay or nay ?
  2. OCZ Agility 3 Series
  3. Ok Ok So I found a few more pennies lying around and it seems that the Corsair Force 3 6G 120Gb is within my price range... soooo???
  4. I still like the Agility 3
  5. Alright so it comes down to OCZ Agility 3 vs Corsair Force 3 @ 120Gb Each (New supplier)

    Lol Which should I choose and why ?
  6. I've come across better reviews on the ocz.
  7. Ok so I'm leaning towards the OCZ as it's the same price, just one moarR thing. Asynchronous vs Synchronous - I know that the asynchronous gets slightly slower as you add more data to it, but does it really make that much of a deathly difference? If it slows down to near normal HDD speeds then I'd be sad-ish. But if it's still relatively fast compared to HDD's then I'd still be happy as I'm thinking of filling it to around 60-70% capacity on average

    Thanks :)
