My OCZ just failed and I wanna get a new one today. I had a 120g but I dont know if its worth getting a 240 gig or just a really good 120 gig drive. And what do people recommend? After having the OCZ fail I wanna steer away from it.

I've seen people recommend the intel drives, personally I have a 120gig crucial M4 and it's been good to me so far.

Yeah would probably go the M4 as they've been out for a while and known to be relatively reliable.

The current Intel 520s are based on sandforce like the OCZs. I'm sure they are likely more stable and less buggy due to Intel's tighter QC methods - but they haven't been out long enough to tell.

Another vote for the Crucial M4. My OCZ failed quickly and was unable to resume from standby with my motherboard, despite a lot of effort. The Crucial functions and so far reliable after 8 months.

do they have a read and write limit, or just a write/erase limit? I wouldn't think reading from it would do anything, in which case it would never reach its limit coz he'd just keep writing more and more files to it, never deleting them :)

I doubt you'd hit the write/erase limit, more likely the cheaper mlc memory karking it.

Crucial M4 here too. You can get the 256gb ones for under $1 per gb if you order from the states.

I recently bought another Sandisk Extreme 240GB, $249 from Scorptec. Great price. Brings my total SSD count in my home desktop to 4. (120, 240, 60, 60).

^^^ Yeh I got 2 ssd's now but I'm tossing up if I should enable SRT "Smart response technology". From what I'm reading it is only good if you have a small ssd of say 40 to 60 gig with a normal hdd to make caching more effective. I'm thinking now I'm just going to leave them the way they are.
