Hey guys, ive been browsing Newegg for a while now trying to decide what SSD i want. Basically i want the fastest 100GB - 128GB available for $400 or under.

 

Been eyeballing these two a lot:

If you're planning on spending that much on an SSD, then take a look at the new OCZ Revodrive that they are preparing to start selling in about a month. It's a PCIe SSD with speeds just over 500MB/s and the price for the 120GB version is said to be around $400-$450. Double the speed and 20GB more capacity over your other options for only ~$100 more. I'd wait for that.

If those are anything like the OCZ Z-Drives, then they're eh... okay. I have a 512 GB Z-Drive at my house sitting unused, because even though it can peak at 800MB/s it hardly ever does. They are not very good with small block random read/writes. The 800 number only shines through when its a large sequential read/write... then its amazing. For my system I just use two Intel drives in RAID 0... if you get two OCZ drives and RAID them, then you'll get garbage collection to maintain their performance. If you're only looking for one single drive, I would look into the Crucial RealSSD C300. dling can back me up on this since I know he just got one (wheres your benches???), but as far as I know its the fastest single SSD available this moment.

Oops, I was looking into that answer yesterday and got lost on a tangent :P Sorry... anyways, they probably would perform similarly. The OCZ loses very slightly in most benchmarks, slight enough to be unnoticable probably. Thats even when the Crucial drive is in a SATA II port, so whichever one tickles you most is what you should go with :D

I would also add the Intel SSD's into the mix, they are solid performers as well!

 

2 of these in RAID0 = Sick Fast, Trust me! Also, just over what your looking to spend + 60Gigs!!!

Or get the same drive x 2 rebranded for less! Almost spending the same, getting a huge jump on performance, and size!!! Intel 80GB SSD x 2 in RAID0 ftw :)
