So I'm very close to the point of indulging in an SSD. Through My research I have found the OCZ Vertex II to be the most well rounded in most areas. Sandforce drive with Trim, work fine in Raid0 with the latest firmware, pretty decent random write specs. Its looking alright
I will most probably be getting the 360GB version so it will be the slowest of the specs bellow

90-360GB Max Performance
Max Read: up to 285MB/s
Max Write: up to 275MB/s
Sustained Write: up to 250MB/s
Random Write 4KB (Aligned): 50,000 IOPS

For your interest, the 480GB specs:

480GB Max Performance
Max Read: up to 250MB/s
Max Write: up to 215MB/s
Sustained Write: up to 205MB/s
Random Write 4KB (Aligned): 17,500 IOPS


  1. Sweet rig.

  2. I've got a 120GB from Samsumg I think...

    Works just fine but it's not the fastest thing...

  3. sounds expensive dude, but if you have the money, do it!

  4. jesus, 480gb = 1600$.
    i'm following, take a look at my blog:

  5. Looks like that would be more then enough for me.

  6. Not bad.. way out of my league in terms of cost.. but great if you have the cash hehe..
