    The vertex 4 is due for release in 20 minutes, I'm really looking forward to seeing what the new cOntroller will do.

    Will TPU have a review? Is it ok to go ocz after all their reliability issues?

    NHKS and 95Viper say thanks.

    If the price is too steep I'm going for the Samsung 830

    would be nice if ocz had sent me one. they said that they usually dont get a lot of samples pre-launch and will keep us updated if they have something later

    Thought so.
    Well I prefer Sandforce controller still. But the Indilinx one seems to do pretty good :rolleyes:

    Legit reviews is the one im most interested in because it compares Vertex 4 vs samsung 830 vs Intel 520

    If they also had a corsair performance pro drive then it would be the best of each mainstream controller

    Plus im surprised about the 5 year warrenty for the vertex 4

    I would rather buy a cheaper Vertex 3.. Which also turns out to be faster.

    Yeah, that STINKS!

    Think I'll hold out. I can wait... we can all wait. The vertex 3 has been good to me.

    I'm not gonna be played!

    Both Anand and Tom's reviewed the drives about a week ago, I think I'll pass, although these drives have faster random read performance and more predictable speeds with uncompressed data, SATA 3 will be a bottleneck for the time being, and my Max IOPS in RAID 0 already saturate it on sequential reads and writes, I'll probably wait until a faster interface is released, not much for wasting precious PCIe slots for drives either :ohwell:

    Thanks for the heads up though :)

    Well, I'm just thinking of bunging one in a HP Compaq CQ61-324SA I bought 2 and a half years ago as a single SATA boot SDD, and I don't think the tech of the system will take full advantage of it.

    Not sure if I should buy a cheaper drive - it's basically to max it out speed-wise, save on heat, keep the forever overheating board alive by removing and replacing the forever hot Shitgate 160GB HDD, and just repairing my feelings about this very badly designed laptop and its airflow problems and the APPALLING lack of support over my extended warranty.

    If the thing dies, I'm gonna get a nice Asus board driven or Acer laptop.

    Can't see much value or advantage to this 4 series, especially not at the price Amazon in the UK are charging - around £170!

    Dabs do not have stock and I don't like buying elsewhere. The reviews you quote are good, Warlock. Check out mine on Amazon UK - if they publish it!

    Some seriously DUMB prices out here in the UK - highest cost o' living in Europe, and the nastiest markups!

    Really? Only 200Mb/s write? (For the 120Gb that is.)

    That's sequential. Look and random write values...
