    Greets.

    Wanna place a 120GB SSD into a laptop (dell Vostro 1015).

    Heard Fury has already proven its stability, and is MLC with its advantages - long life, & has good reviews.
    Though here are newer products, like a400 - but untested & TLC.

    Should i stay with Fury, or any goodies could you recommend?

    Thanx for any fine info.

    I still use my Kingston HyperX SSD (240GB); the SandForce controller is long in the tooth. It still works.

    ^ ditto. I have a 240GB HyperX 3K that's been running strong since the model was being actively manufactured. I can't tell a difference in boot/app launch times between it, my Crucial M4 256GB, Crucial MX100 256GB, Crucial MX200 1TB, Seagate 600 480GB, or Samsung 830 128GB.

    Thanx for your answers.

    So speedwise it is ok, and still reliable.
    So possibly Fury with MLC is really longer lasting than general TLCs...

    That's precisely why I don't own any TLC drives. :)
