    I need a 240GB SSD (well I would prefer to a 480GB but those are just out of the question). A lot of what I do is parsing thru large data files so the faster the drive the better. I haven't been able to find one place that lists what each drive uses, so I find a drive and have to look them up. This is the list I have so far:

    Toggle Nand (the fastest):
    Mushkin Chronos Deluxe
    OCZ Vertex 3 Max IOPS
    OWC Mercury Extreme Pro 6G
    Patriot Wildfire

    Synchronous Nand (Middle):
    Adata S511
    Corsair Force 3 GT
    Intel 520
    Kingston HyperX
    OCZ Vertex 3
    Patriot Pyro SE

    Asynchronous Nand (Slowest):
    Adata S510
    Corsair Force 3
    OCZ Agility 3
    OWC Mercury Electra 6G
    Patriot Pyro

    Any other Brands I should be looking at?

    If anyone else can point me to a website that lists them all or has additional to share I will add it to the list.

    I tend to like the SSD reviews over at Tom's Hardware, though I haven't checked to see if they reviewed all the ones you're interested in.
