    i will be using just for win 7 and a few programmes i will have a normal sata 2 drive for the rest of the junk on my computer.

    the m225 uses samsung flash stuffs which i read is the worst type for ssd's.

    They're talking about the controllers, very different to the NAND chips.

    Both the Vertex Turbo and M225 use the Indilinx Barefoot Controller. The Turbo is an "overlocked" drive, and costs much more.

    Real world you won't notice a difference, so pick the one that suits you (or your wallet) :)
