Looking to buy a 64GB can anyone point me in the direction of a good review site on the above?

atm ocz vertex 2 and corsair c300 are the 2 best bets

the corsair if you dont write to it, it has very fast read speeds

I am interested in your conclusions as I am thinking of a custom or self build early next year, and have in mind a SSD as the OS disc, plus one or more SATA's for data.

I have decided on the OCZ (below) as I have asked the question on a decent SSD, on a couple of other forums,and Vertex 2 has come up more often than any other as a recommendation.
I will add if you decide on the C300 you will need a SATA 3 MOBO or a Highpoint Rocket 620 (R620) a SATA 3 control card

So looking at the diffrnce between ssd and normal ones. If i understand correctly the advantages of a ssd are:
1-Quicker to acces data on them.
2-More reliable
3-generates less heat
4-quieter

cons
1-more expensive
2-slower rite times
3-more expenisve
4-will not last as long before needing replacing


Im also considering a new HD when i work out whats wrong with my comp currently.

Con No 4 is accurate.

A colleague has one and after just a few months it is reporting as being only 75% healthy.

Worth nowing think I will stay with a normal hdd for now.

Any SSD hard drive anyone buys really must support TRIM (the cheaper ones almost certainly don't), so you can totally blank the space left on the disk rather than mark it as available click here for a better explanation
