What would be better a Corsair M64 or an OCZ Vertex? The Corsair is quite a bit cheaper but how do the two drives stack up in terms of performance?

Apparently, that Corsair SSD uses a JMicorn controller. Corsair's larger SSDs (ie 128GB SSD) uses a Samsung controller.

After hearing all the reports about stuttering with JMicron controllers, I'd avoid them. Even if manufacturers say they've 'fixed' them. I doubt you'll notice a performance difference. I mean the difference between 170MB/s and 230MB/s seems big, but they're both screaming fast compared to any HDD. I'd get the Vertex imo.

+1, I've heard nothing but bad things about the jmicron controller.

Jmicron SSD's are bad. they stutter nastily, and often have trouble installing OS's due to timeouts if they stutter while installing the OS.

None, go for the Samsung 64GB if you can get it in the states. If not then the Vertex is your best option.
