I know I have been asking a lot of SSD questions lately, but tonight is the only night I can order and after reading up on countless reviews, choosing Amazon to pick from, and choosing a 128GB drive with a 1TB Caviar Black to get myself started, I have come down to the three SSDs listed in the title.
This drive is for my OS, most used programs (Word, Excel), and I will install and uninstall the games I am playing the most, onto this drive(BF3, TF2, GTA IV, etc).
Any advice that can be given about how these three drives compare in everyday use would be greatly appreciated.
I think his point was the reliability of the M4 has been proven. I own the 64GB version and it works like a champ. I think as long as the drive works as advertised the differences in speed would not be noticed without the benchmarks.
Yeah people put way too much emphasis on the speed of these things but unless your running benchmarks, you will never notice the difference in speed. I have owned about 9 SSD's within the last 3 years and just notice the capacity more than the speeds. In my rig I have a Corsair Force GT and the 515mb writes mean nothing if your not doing SSD to SSD transfers.
Go for the one that has the best rep for reliability and of course the cheapest. The M4 has a great track record. Even the lowest of the low SSD will yield a huge noticeable snappyness. Just don't buy OCZ!
