    Hardware revolution


    The Intel drive is still the best, but it comes at a high cost. The Vertex can give you a similar experience, definitely one superior to even the fastest hard drives, but at a lower price. And I’ll spare you the obligatory reference to the current state of the global economy. The Samsung SLC drives have come down in price but they don't seem to age as gracefully as the Intel or OCZ Vertex drives. If you want price/performance, the Vertex appears to be the best option and if you want all-out performance, snag the Intel drive.

    Please refrain from giving advice when you obviously know little or nothing about the subject your talking about.

    Sandforce 1200 drives own intels. end of.

    Vertex 2
    Corsair Force
    Patriot Inferno

    For Mac this is the best option until Q4 this year when intel comes back with bigger faster drives.

    Windows 7 the C300 Drive is the best out there was wipes the floor with intels and because of TRIM works well.
