I like the M4's, and I've bought probably 40 of them, but for $50 less, the pyro is pretty tempting.

Definitely the m4 out of those two. The Pyro (non SE) uses slower asynchronous 2xnm Nand.

Edit: The m4 that comes with the transfer kit is actually a little cheaper - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820148448

Crucial M4 is a great drive, that would be my choice of the two, and if you can wait for sales, Samsung 830 has come down to $140 last week, so it could come down again.

you do not want the pyro.

as for an upgrade from the m4, look at the corsair performance pro, sandisk extreme, vertex 4, or the plextor m3p pro. those are all better drives than an m4, so whatever costs less may be what you want.

the M$ would be better that is has a better garbage collection.

The questions is what OS is this for?
If you are going with an OS that does not support trim (OSX, *nix, XP, ETC.) I would seriously look at the Corsair Performance Pro. The aggressive background garbage collection is pretty amazing.
The Plextor M3 is also mighty nice looking. if you go with the 256GB drives, they are pretty cheap per GB right now.

If this is for Win7/2008r2, the M4 might be better bargan.

take a look at this http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/sto...ell-ssd_7.html

The pyro is cheating its numbers because it uses async nand. Sad to say, but it is true. The pyro's rated numbers there are for data the is only zeros. random data (aka every single file you have on your computer) will NOT perform at the numbers quoted by the pyro.

these are two drives that use EVERYTHING exactly the same except the nand. the left side is sync nand. the right side is async nand. the difference is huge. the pyro has async nand and will perform like the drive on the right.



you want a drive with sync nand. the m4 has sync. if you really want a patriot drive, you would purchase the patriot wildfire, which has sync nand and will perform like the left side.

Or Toggle, The Pyro SE has 2xnm sync Nand, while the Wildfire has 34nm Toggle Nand. Force 3 and the Pyro are the same (async 2xnm Nand), while the Force GT and Pyro SE both use the same Nand (2xnm sync Nand). Anyway, the chart comparison works....

it is a real gem in terms of price, we've been picking them up at work for cache drives.

there's a comparison for anyone else taking a look at it.

even though the OP has made his choice, for anyone else reading this thread who's trying to decide on an ssd, if you're looking at the 128GB size, m4 all the way baby!

i just picked one up last week and with a fresh install of win7, i'm cruisin'!

i happened to get mine when newegg dropped down to $154.99 too, so i only paid about $1.20/GB. can't beat that!

One question. . .I have a 970 EXTREME3 motherboard. I will use windows 7.

Am I going to have to have to use TRIM? I'm almost illiterate with this.

You don't have to use TRIM, but why wouldn't you want to? Also, if you didn't already buy the Sandisk, the Plextor M3 is on sale for $10 more

Always better to use TRIM if your drive and OS support it. It never hurts, and it can certainly help.

I'm getting the plex. It comes with a 3.5 to 2.5 tray. Plus it looks cooler. Thanks

To date, can never go wrong with an intel SSD. if critical data is a concern, go for intel. That said, there is a great deal on a 120GB vertex 3 right now at newegg ($109 after rebate and promotion code)
