I'd take a V+ 64gb over any Indilinx 60/64GB SSD. The V+'s just scale down better then the Indilinx's do. :)

The X25-M 80GB and Vertex 2 60GB are both $205 at Newegg.


Edit: Nevermind, in the past few hours, Newegg jacked the X-25M 80GB up in price.

Definitely the 80GB Intel X25-M and I'd shop around as it goes on sale on Newegg every other week or so it seems. If not then the Kingston V+ would probably be my second choice.

Yeah. ASSUMING they are all in the same price bracket across the pond....

Intel > V+ > Indilinx full speed (crucial and Vertex. both are the same drive. Ive just seen the crucial cheaper before MIR then the vertex...and I hate MIR's) > mid speed Inidi (Nova) >WD Blue / Reactor (with a preference for the WD) > Sammy / solid 2 (both are "meh" at best)

I purchased a used OCZ Vertex 120gb about a month ago. It has been the best upgrade possible, not only do I run reads of 230-240 but I get only a 0.01ms access time which is about standard for these. It really provides a noticeable difference for everything that you run/open and IMO you'll be happy with any trim supporting SSD of mid to high quality.

I would personally recommend the vertex though as I've had great experiences and no problems. Just remember to use it properly with AHCI and the correct sata port! Most mobo's have 1-2 ports that use a jmicron controller and don't let you utilize the integrated controllers the ssd's use. Goodluck!
