Rodney you don't mention Mushkin at all. Wondering how the Mushkin Chonos Deluxe drive compares to the others you mentioned? I've searched other reviews but wanted your opinion. Thanks.

If you have a spare PCI-Express port then I would recommend the OCZ 120Gb RevoDrive3 (or even the original Revodrive like mine).

It's already configured for best performance. You don't need a to upgrade your motherboard or purchase SataIII card.

The 120Gb and 240Gb RevoDrive3 are very reasonably prices to atm. Great value when I could buy a drive that can read and write at nearly 1Gb/s. Amazing stuff. However some other models in this range are very very pricey indeed.

As Rodney said you have to watch out for cheaper and usually inferior products. Well there are some cheap inferior SSD's out there too. Check those specs out :D

I have had mine RevoDrive for 2 years now, with no problems at all compared to some well known brands of HDD, that caused me no end of nightmares.

My RevoDrive still preforms very very well indeed as if it was new.

All you need is a decent means of backing up programs and files. Keep the SSD free for program and game installations.

Kingston HyperX 3K, very good drives. Very curious about the new Corsair Neutron, and Neutron GTX.

With Toshiba and Samsung deliberately cutting back NAND production, I don't think we will see prices drop lower than it already is. I would pick up any 240/256 GB with reliable firmware on sale for $170. SSDs are all about reliable firmware.

I only recommend Crucial, Samsung, and Intel at work. The reason is simple, highest reliability of any other companies. The whole Sanforce debacle was a nightmare for those of us selling these things. OCZ learned from this after getting hit hard, but the jury is still out on the new indulinx drives. They are fast, but new and unproven. The three I mentioned before have the best track record of solid drives in the industry. Intel have the best overall record. My customers are important to me, so I wont recommend OCZ at the moment or anything with pure Sandforce controllers. It's not worth it to have a pissed off customer a few months dow the road.

Guess I'm behind in the times. I don't even have an SSD yet to give any advice. I'm sort of waiting on a nice 256 or 512 SSD to drop in my price range below $100.

I like Corsair, OCZ and Patriot

Currently using (2) 120GB Corsair Force3 GT's in RAID0

2 x Vertex 3 60GB in RAID 0 pulls 1000MB/s

Crucial M4, doesn't have the shitty SandForce controller which OCZ used in the Agility's and Vertex 2 and 3 drives.
Also the Crucial M4 gives you the best bang for buck.

Vertex 4, you forgot to mention. I too, am using OCZ agility 3, it's cheaper compared to the vertex series

I like this Q&A video. Very good brand names mention. I agree with everything Rodney says. I have an Samsung 830 128gb. It's a beast! XD Go figure Samsung

I probably go with Intel 520S, while its not the cheapest or the fastest, it's the most reliable. Though I have heard good things about the Crucial M4.

Im using the OCZ SSD Agility 3 Series, SandForce® SF-2281. Never had any problems with them and here in Norway i always find them a tiny bit cheaper than others.

Crucial M4. The best for its money.

I like Mushkin's and Plextor's.

Personally, I wouldn't touch a OCZ.
