i have never heard of buying a product and planning on its failure as a selling point for it.
i have got dual corsair force 3 120gb ssds, and i am very happy with them, but i will be upgrading to something like the intel 520 series or crucial 120gb ssds in the coming months
Call me old fashioned but I don't trust any memory based storage device (especially tech that changes as quickly as the SSD market) as much as a good old platter drive. So i just recommend getting the best SSD for the buck, since day to day usage will net little noticeable difference between the best bencher drive and the best value drive IMHO. Eventually they'll stick with one design but until then we're all just guinea pigs lol
I love my Vertex, just hit 8 months a couple days ago. I backup every month. My Kingston 64GB is also a very great perform and I also picked that up for $1/GB as well
The M4 is not comparable with a 520<br>the write speeds are closer to the 320 series, which is fine as you get what you pay for<br><br>I'm sure you know Vertex 4 is out and most likely intel will refresh their lineup<br>520 is a fine drive but if you plan to buy one in a few months I'm sure there will be more options to consider<br><br><br><br><br>
Real life performance difference= none
So I took the plunge and ordered the Corsair Performance Pro 128gb. I read numerous articles and pretty much all of them said it is amazing and reliable. OCZ scared me away with more than half of their reviews being negative...Intel and Samsung were close runners up. I felt like too many people bandwagon with the crucial, and although it seems like a good drive for the money, I have money to spend
Let us know how it goes, though with your comments on failures keep in mind that if a company sells more, it has more products out there to fail...
