    The read speeds are sort of limited by the controller.
    Can you use the faster write speeds for things you do. Those will be a lot faster on a 6G SSD.

    I would buy a Samsung 830 or 470 if I was buying one now. Very good idle power draw, fast for any data. Better than Intel more reliable than OCZ.
