    Default SSD choice

    How does this crucial M5 stack up to the rest of the SSD field with regards to performance and stability?
    Newegg.com - Crucial M4 CT512M4SSD2 2.5" 512GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

    Any others that would be better?
    Newegg.com - Crucial/Internal SSD

    Im looking for the top of the line best performer and most stable available.

    Thx again!
    My setup back in the day! Hopefully Ill get back to there soon!

    Start Here and read about them.

    SSD development is fast moving and newer/better is being introduced all of the time.
    I suggest reading a few reviews and just picking one. (SATA-III 6GBs speed) They are all blindingly fast and no matter what you buy, it will not be the ~fastest~ for very long.
    The good part is that the slowest SSD that I own is still miles faster than my fastest HDD.

    Did some reading on the reviews.

    Crucial is considered a good brand, and the m4 series is a good choice?

    Russ, take a long look at the new OCZ Vertex 4, killer speeds, but I'm not sure on the price of the 512GB I believe the 256GB is a little over $300. I'm running the m4 256GB also the Vertex 3 240GB both are excellent drives
    My Sandisk Extreme 240GB is also a very very fast drive. If your looking for a high capacity SSD email me, I may have something that you would be interested in.
