Edit: I am going to leave me comments even though lil D here pulled his last comment where he said I dont know what I am talking about and how TPU's review are the be all and end all.

Nope not all knowing. Far from it. But I put about 200hrs into each review. How much testing have you done?

Honestly, fanboi it seems your reading comprehension skills are as poor as your people skills. I put all devices through multiple tests in multiple scenarios. sata 3, Sata 2, non-trim, custom synthetic, custom real world. You would know this if you actually read the reviews. But that would mean thinking other people's opinions matter.

I call you a fanboi as you are are biased against OCZ and you have also claimed multiple times that Intels are nothing special. Prove YOU are something special. Prove that you are not a fanboi but actually do represent a mfg'er. Prove that you know what you are talking about with some credentials.

So put up or shut up....or better yet DO BOTH.

Edit 2:

hmm IP for him is:
in the UK

tsk tsk mate. Wonder how much Kingston UK is going to be happy with you? Going around slagging other companies is NOT professional. At. All.

edit 3:

before he deletes his other posts.

Intel 520 or Kingston HyperX 3K are good choices. Stick to sync ONFI2 NAND for best performance.
OCZ=garbage, lots of failures in the field.
Alternatively Samsung 830 is a great drive at a great deal!

Sorry I work in the engineering department of a SSD manufacter.
As for being biased, OCZ still sucks and I highly recommend Kingston HyperX, Intel or Samsung, in other words, quality drives. I'm biased toward quality products.
