    So much of a tossup its down to preference really, personally I'm a Kingston guy so I would go Kingston but there is not enough difference between them to make any big deal out of so go with what you prefer :toast:

    The OCZ Max IOPS since it is under $120 dollars and the Kingston is not.

    Found the 3k drive on NCIX for 140 shipped (40 less than the OCZ) so I think I'm going to go with that then :)


    EDIT: I found a Marvell controlled Samsung 840 for $94
    http://www.ncix.com/products/?sku=77210&vpn=MZ-7TD120BW&manufacture=Others&promoid=1292 I would be running it with around 100 gigs of data on it (probably) so I think I would be better with marvell in that case.





    It has been purchased.

    Wise purchase in my opinion. I've had very good luck with the Samsung 830/840 drives. Although, I don't own any of the Pro series. Too much premium.

    Best,
