Yes it does. Thank You.
That may be where I got a bit mixed up as well.
Wishmaster, I just read a post on the Intel Forum. It said that there were indications that trim could be passed in a pure software raid, but they were unable to confirm that.

Any thoughts on this one? Agility3. $235. $215 after rebate. Rebate takes about 3 months so it would seem from OCZ.
Newegg.com - OCZ Agility 3 AGT3-25SAT3-120G 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Main difference I see is Agility3 4kb IOPS is 50K, standard V3 is 60K and the Max Iops version is 75K below.


Compare to.
Vertex3 $300
Newegg.com - OCZ Vertex 3 VTX3-25SAT3-120G 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Vertex3 MaxIOPS $320- Reviews mixed by owners. DOA or short life. About 12% in newegg reviewers.
Newegg.com - OCZ Vertex 3 Series – MAX IOPS Edition VTX3MI-25SAT3-120G 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Moboard has SATA3/SATA6.0Gbs controller.

Curious on OCZ quality ????? It looks iffy on many of them in the Vertex2.

The rebate, if you get it, will take more than 3 months. Mine took about 4. The Vertex3 is probably one of the faster drives around, but according to reviews it has some issues.

Many here will disagree. I have both a vertex2 and an Intel X25-M. The Vertex will bench faster in some reguards than the Intel, but the Intel seems faster, reads faster and seems to have faster response times. I have had to RMA my Vertex twice, but the Intel is still going strong with no problems. The toolbox is better also.

Thanks Essenbe that was the kind of info I was wondering about.

I think I'll do some more looking.

No Problem. It is just my opinion - like noses, everyone has one. But, I do like the reliability of the Intel Drives even if they are a little slower. Thake a look at this, you may find it interesting. The lowly X25-V seems pretty resilent.

What I ran across in the same size and price range to Agility3 from Intel. Any ideas here??
Newegg.com - Intel 320 Series SSDSA2CW120G3K5 2.5" 120GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Super speed isn't my main goal. Any SSD out does my spinners.

Reading thru the testing link you provided.

Actually, I am thinking about buying one of those myself. I like them. My only question is, I really only need an 80GB. But, the 120 has better stats and is only about $40 more. Makes more sense to me to buy the 120 even though I only need 80. What do you think?

If this will help this is the test I did with both the Vertex and the Intel. Both with the identical OS and programs on the same hardware. Notice the read speeds of the intel. The vertex has much better write speeds, but with an OS, read speeds and access times are much more important.

For $40 bucks I know I would go to the 120GB. Better to have and not need.
That will give you about 100-105GB??? usable if I remember correctly.

Going with the fastest isn't important to me.
I can easily OC my CPU to 3.8GHz- had to try it once - but why when it works just fine at 3.08GHz at 28*C and Vcore is 0.87.

One of them they are testing is a 320.

Also went to 5 year warranty on the 320.

Thats right, and about the same thing I have decided. I had read in the news forum about the updated warranty. I guess Intel is pretty confident about their drives.
