The 4 series OCZs are fine, I wouldn't worry about them. I would, as noted above, consider a 256 Gb drive though, especially if you want to use this in the future as a single drive. 128s fill up quickly these days.


i am fine in that sense, i will have a 1tb second drive for storing data and downloads etc

and all my important stuff ia backed up to external drives on a regular basis

i have a 160gb drive in just now and 123gb is free space lol

Well... OCZ doesn't use SandForce in the Vertex/Agility 4s, so... :ermm:


Indilinx?

The Vertex's, even the newest ones, have the highest return rates according to a friend that works at an online retailer. Ive seen online stats that arent very flattering as well. Corsairs are good, Intels for sure, And Sandisk's have been reliable for me also.

I think the OCZ Vector series are newer and a touch faster than the Vertex 4, might be worth a look

I'd get the Samsung 830 (840 isn't as good) or the new Crucial m500. Both are a lot more reliable than OCZ.

The new Crucial M500 1TB SSD. That will hopefully start driving prices down to below .50 per MB in the near future. If 1TB drives were around $350 - $450 it would definitely be a game changer to laptops. Apple at $1300 for a 768SSD. smoking crack again.
