Hi there,
I'd like to buy a ssd.

Size? 256, 250 or 240gb.

I really prefer 256gb to maximize capacity. Actually my main HD is 320gb and have only 46gb free, so I think 256gb would feel a little tight.

Budget? 150 to 180$

I was going to buy this one last week at 149.99$ but now that offer is over.
SanDisk Extreme SSD 240 GB ...................................................... 174$

Other options:
SanDisk Ultra Plus SSD 256 GB .................................................... 170$
Samsung MZ-7TD250BW 840 Series Solid State Drive (SSD) 250 GB ... 172$
Mushkin Enhanced Callisto Deluxe 240 GB ...................................... 170$
Mushkin Chronos 240 GB ........................................................... 170$
Kingston Digital 240GB SSDNow V300 ........................................... 175$

I sorted them in capacity terms, my main concern.

What would be the best chioce in terms of performance?

Thanks in advance ;)

pd: If you can find other option at amazon in that range of price and capacity do not hesitate to let me know :)

SanDisk Ultra Plus models are slow they are basically meant for laptops and whatnot...
SanDisk Extreme's are nice! I'm running 2 Extreme's in RAID0 and I get an average of 1Gb/s read write speeds on their own they do about 550Mb/s

The Samsung is in the same boat as the Tha SanDisk Ultra Plus with fast reads and slow writes.

That Mushkin is SLOW!!!!! 285MB/s read 275Mb/s right

The Kingston is 450Mb/s average The Sandisk Extreme is 550Mb/s reas 520 Mb/s right
and imo your only choices here are the Kingston and the SanDisk....Personally I'd go for the Sandisk.

Given if you don't have a SATA 3 (6gb/s) mobo you wont notice a difference but you will if you upgrade.

Just my opinion....I wouldn't buy OCZ regardless...
They have had more issues with their SSD's than any other company and they charge a premium for what amounts to be junk...and it hasn't stopped yet and their quality still hasn't gotten any better...
Seems like they are the only company that sells a shit load of refurbished models for every single SSD they sell and that tells me they are shit...here have a look

Yes, I have sata 3 mobo.

When you say "slow", you mean they are slower than other ssd's which are faster, right?

But generally speaking a "slow" sdd is still much faster than any hard drive, or am I wrong?

Yeah...I mean slow compared to other SSD's which are still faster than Mechanical HDD's

That Mushkin SSD is the slowest of them all...

Those problems are history, they use a different controller

Nope....They are showing up on the Indilinx controller as well
PCs & Laptops, Laptop Accessories, Internal SSD, ...

They are already having issue with the Vertex 4's just like they have with every other model they have ever had...
Those are the cheapy drives most companies have issues with cheapy drives. I rather like the indilinx based controllers, I still have my several year old barefoot controller based drives (one of the original TRIM setups) running in raid 0 with TRIM disabled. Basically everything they say not to do I have done and they still work. The crossover year when it when it had the marvel controller (barefoot2) I could care not.

I have three OCZ drives and not one issue. Vertex 3 and 4. I was under the impression that firmware fixed there issues. I know they were up for sale but got new investors.

OCZ is using a tweaked version of the barefoot 3 that runs slightly slower at a lower voltage and I think they are doing that because of their MLC memory is crap.

I think Intel, SanDisk and Kingston have kinda proven that its something else besides the Sandforce controllers that are at fault...sure they all had issues with em but not even close to what OCZ had and I think the reason for that is OCZ is cutting corners on its choice of MLC memory...

I'm not saying everything OCZ makes is crap I'm just saying I'd rather you find out if it is or not and I'll take your word for it and buy something else...LOL

Cheap (crap) MLC memory was at fault on the older drives the Vertex 4 and Vector series supposedly fixed all of those issues. Reviews are quite good for the Vector's and there are next to no "issues" floating around the web about them.

Shouldnt look at any others, these are pretty much the best performers IN ACTUAL USEFUL TASKS. They are also the only SSD's that dont seem to blatantly lie about their performance.

Correct and the Vector is a better drive.
Cheers, edited.
Stand by my statement however. TPU has a large SSD review thread on here, very useful for this.

I like my 840 non pro, write is bad in comparison to its peers but if you don't write a lot that will be my recommendation

First of all I'd like to thank for all your answers. I've read a lot of reviews of those models mentioned above. Most of them are focus on benchmarks that I don't really care. But there are a few with "real world tests" that I consider more important such as loading time for OS or programs. I also found that in some cases, some reviews favored certain models over others while others reviews do the opposite. However I can see they perform relatively similar, I mean the difference is not like day and night.

Said that, I think in terms of performance 3 runners up are...
Sandisk extreme 240gb > Samsung 840 250gb ≈ Sandisk ultra plus 256gb.

With a tight price variation, only 4$.

Considering that once having format the real capacity changes:
256gb become 238gb
250gb become 232gb
240gb become 223gb

I think I'll grab Sandisk ultra plus 256gb.- :)

Show me where SanDisk lied so I can prove to you that you're 100% wrong.
My SanDisk Extremes are dead on what they were claimed to be and even better than expected in RAID0 with less than 100 MB/s average combined speed loss over the controller giving me just under 1Gb/s speeds and they are as fast as expected IN ACTUAL USEFUL TASKS.
