I'd stay away from the first-gen Indilinx drives (any Vertex/Falcon/Torqx/X256) unless you're comfortable flashing the newest Supertalent firmware to it before you do anything else. The older firmwares have a bug in them that bricks the drives. I barely got mine to come back after a lot of frustration but they've been rock-solid since.
I'd prefer a much newer drive with the dedicated 16GB sector for garbage collection then the first gen tech, thanks for that tidbit of info though. What do you think I should do? Agility or Chronos?
You can get the Mushkin Enhanced Chronos Deluxe for $239 with free shipping at Newegg. That saves you around $10 bucks over the Agility 3 at Amazon. The Amazon deal has free shipping too but it is their Super Saver Shipping option which has been notoriously slow for me.
Agreed. Right now it's all about the price point. If you're not in too much of a hurry keep watching the Newegg eBlast deals as they seem to run a SSD sale every week.
Is it really worth the $10 over the Agility, I've always heard Mushkin are top tier as far as memory manufacturers go.
I'd get it at Amazon for my Prime 2 day shipping (and to avoid Newegg taxing the fun out of it
+1. Good performance and relatively cheap.
So is everyone in agreement that I ought to get the Mushkin over the Agility??
