    Hi,

    I am searching for a new ssd for my mac mini mc816. Currently i've installed 60 gb agility 3.
    But decided that i need more space on disc.

    Please help me to decide which one to purchase ( I need 120 GB ):
    - OCZ Vertex 3 Max IOPs SSD 120GB
    - Corsair Force Series GT 120GB
    - Crucial M4 128GB
    - Kingston HyperXR 120 GB
    - Team Xtream S2 120GB
    or
    - OCZ Vertex 3 120 GB




    Thanks :)

    If you need more memory why are you shopping for an SSD?


    Sorry, as an IT guy that fail always makes me shake my head. :)

    Top of the SSD heap is the Samsung 830 IMHO.

    As an "amateur" IT guy myself (I build my own space stations out of of cooling irons, or however they are called), I associate the term "memory" with RAM though.

    All seem to be good options. But for reliability nothing beats Intel.

    I don't know what you can get shipped to your country but if this seller will ship to you buy it.

    As an ex manager of IT guys it's precisely such head shaking that makes me glad I'm now a speech therapist.:)

    This Forum should be renamed, MacSmartAlecs - what a bunch of duff replies.

    Wow, hell's teeth, he made mistake and mentioned memory instead of storage oooh. Obviously a Capital offence in the US volodymyrqa.

    My choice would be Crucial, here in England they are very good and if there's a problem they'll try to help or let you return it - that's based upon my experience FWIW.

    And you'll notice that I had indeed answered his question, not just took a swipe. Forums also full of folks that get their panties in a wad pretty quickly too :)

    It's such a common error, non ted. folks wills ay to me.."I'm running out of space I need more memory" explanation after explanation seems to fail. I even showed an HDD and a memory module to a buddy a while back...He still doesn't get it!

    OP I'm waiting for a relaible 500GB+ SSD before I fuss around with the smaller ones...It's not worth the hassle. If your are short on Hard Drive space, buy a cheap[, fast HDD.

    I'll buy SSD in Ukraine, because of the warranty.

    This will be my next SSD - Corsair Force 3 Series 180GB


    extra 60Gb memory just in case and good performance for the price
