http://thessdreview.com/our-reviews...sd-review-benchmark-protocol-initial-testing/ the new crucial realssd c400 256gb got a nice review. look below for the IOPs very nice numbers. Crucial M4 256gb will be the same as Micron c400 one is retail one is oem. With those speeds below this will be a great boot drive /Itunes drive for audiophiles . No spinning sound to interfere with the music. Cost is in the 475.00 range. Around 919 for a 512gb. If cindori has found a trim for all ssd solution I will need to buy a ssd this year. I don't understand how it has great IOPS with the same marvell controller that intel is using in its 510series.
