The Samsung seems to be pretty popular in this forum but looks to be the slowest. The other Mushkin has read/write +500mb/s, OCZ's read is 560 write is 430. The Samsung has a write of only 320. The write speed in IOPS are as follows: 85000 for the Mushkin, up to 120000 for the OCZ, and only 30000 for the Samsung. Read speed: 90000 for OCZ and 80000 for the Samsung, while the Mushkin was not listed on NewEgg. Was wondering what would make me prefer the slower Samsung over the other drives listed. Does having a higher IOPS rating make a HUGE difference?
One last thing, I'm thinking now may not be the best time to buy a drive considering there may be some deep discount for black friday. What do you guys think?
always wait as long as you can... if you just have to have them now/yesterday, then get the most value to you.
All of the above ssds are fine, i think in real world performance, you would not notice any different between the drives. Personally, i'd get the one with the longest warranty period.
