    I want the fastest drive for OS I can get for around £160 ~ 170 ish.

    Which of these is the best to get? Both OCZ's appear faster then the Intel in 4k speeds and overall data transfer.

    The OCZ Vertex 2E is probably your best bet for fastest drive. The only thing that worries me about OCZ drives is the amount of reports on their forums of drives just disappearing from BIOS.

    That happens to be the drive I was preferring ;)

    Hmm is that on the AMD controller? I thought it was all ok on the Intel controller...

    But the Intel drive is slower at everything including 4k reads/writes...

    That review does not include the OCZ drive in question?

    fair enough, just posted the charts as I found them handy when looking for SSD.

    reason I said intel, maybe because a brand follower. in fact I dont know why its the first brand that came to my head

    The Intel, the SSD's feel very similar in use but the Intel gives you more room to play with.

    I had a OCZ Vertex 60GB die, it started with driver errors, and then the BSOD, tried formatting the drive it got to 75% and it died it was a Intel X58 chipset I did try it on another AMD setup and it was dead. I had it for just over a year.:(
    I sent it back to the supplier here in the UK, or had the option to send it to the Netherlands; I am still waiting on the replacement.
    Still would buy an OCZ!

    Yeah 2E looks to me the best option.

    Any more advice from any owners?

    I'm wondering the same. But I have being looking at the OCZ 60Gb SATA 2 Vertex or the Kingston SSD V+ Series 64GB.

    Is there anywhere the two of them are reviewed for comparison?
