So I've exhausted myself researching these ssd's. I'm looking for a drive no less than 200gb to store the os, programs, and media on. I DO NOT want an intel because the size is too small and I don't want to wait 7 months for the new ones to come out. I've heard of the corsair p256, crucial m225, and ocz vertex. I need one that won't drastically degrade over time, or require some weird firmware upgrade work around. I will not be using boot camp or partitioning anything for windows. It also needs to be under $700 which all of the above are. If anyone can help me choose from those three or from any alternatives, it would greatly reduce my stress. Thanks in advance.
