My System Specs

Default ~240GB SSD to replace Vertex RAID

Hey Guys,

I had 2 Vertex 120s in RAID 0 on my PC in town and kept having memory errors, write fails, etc and I'm pretty sure one of them is dying. I've had a few Vertex 120s and they all had problems, so rather than spend the time to figure out which is having problems, I'm just going to replace the setup.

So I'm looking for suggestions for a SATA III main drive setup that's around 240GB. Either one drive for everything or 2 drives at around 120 each (but probably not in RAID 0 again, unless there's some that RAID really well).

Budget isn't really fixed, I'd like to keep it under $400. I know the Crucial M4s were a really good bang for you buck drive (well as far as SSDs go), but I'm not as up to date on the SSD market as I'd like to be.

I'd consider OCZ again (Just not original Vertex), Corsair, Crucial, etc. Really they just need to be a reputable brand and perform well.

Any tips, sales you're aware of or suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks much,
