Yeah, I will stay with 0309. I usually do not fix things that are working. My next SSD I will try is this one. It is cheap enough to experiment. Comes also in larger sizes for reasonable prices. And the specs look great. But paper is patient - as we say in German.

Ok mate I'll go with what it's got and that Mushkin brand I have seen it and wondered what it would be like so will be interesting tot see what you think of it..They don't do it from my local supplier or at least the one I prefer to use and I am now confused re Intel as Newegg say they have a Marvel controller yet the ones out here are listed as using Sandforce controllers.

Now I don't want to be a pain but which benchmarking app do you prefer to use as Newegg use two and I have to find an article somewhere on what the ideal readouts would be as being new to this I am just seeing numbers and really don't understand except for the read / write iops what those other numbers mean or how they should affect what I get.

I am intending replacing all of my machines with a boot SSD so I need to find these things out and Googles come up with masses of info that would take years to plough through so as you have the finger on the pulse as it were I would appreciate your thoughts and opinions.

One last thing is what really has me mystified is why do the manufacturers of the drives not make their own controllers? It appears to me to be rather odd. Its a bit like having a Ford car with a Lexus engine
Plus there seems to be so many SSD controller chips - 30 companies profiled on StorageSearch.com

1. For benchmarking I use Atto and HD Tune.

2. I would not worry too much about data transfer rates. What really counts for the OS are the 4K transfer rates and the access time. That should be around 0.1ms.

3. A Ford with a Lexus engine would be nice. I have a Mercury with a 6 Cyl. Ford engine and that thing is loud.

4. The Mushkin I will only start to use mid May when I am back in Germany. I plan to stick it into an eSata enclosure and put Win8 on it - as a Win8 to go.

Ok I'll stick to those and thanks for the heads up on the transfer rate at least I don't have to wade through heaps of figures now.

My new car is a 12/2011 plated Mazda 6 hatchback (had a 2009 that I traded) and they have recently introduced steroids to the fuel injection system and it (they tell me as I go past) sounds like an F1

I have owned 45 cars in my life - but never a Mazda. When I am back in Germany, I'll have to buy a new car too.

Be worth test driving a Mazda 6 Wolfgang the hatchback I think is the best styled model and I have no hesitation in saying the best car I have ever owned or driven, and like you have had many many cars over the years.

Have a look Mazda Australia Zoom-Zoom - Mazda6 Colours if it comes out at the home page click on colours then change model to touring hatchback - mines in Sunlight Silver. The luxury version of course is even better appointed inside, but the touring is so refined now.

Meant to add and 40mpg or 7L/100KM whichever you prefer I like mpg cos I'm over the hill LOL!!

I am sure that is a very nice car. My problem is usually the seats. I have a serious back problem and need extra comfortable seats that have a lot of adjustment options. The only car I found that seeems to meet my requirements and is withinn my budget is this one. I also wanted one that is a bit higher so I don't have to crawl into it. In addition I can get that one 5000 Euros below MSRP. So we'll see.

Hum well the 6 has real nice leather seats and is fully powered except for the lumbar support and that you have to adjust by hand - but not hard and like you I have a back that cannot take too long a trip but this puppy I could go all day in.

Now as for height well I am vertically compromised I'm afraid so at 5-3" can't complain re the getting in and out.

But it makes up for it in grunt, steering (electric powered) the ride, cornering, the hatch is as good as a station wagon, stereo (Bose) is superb and the climate control is just out of this world especially if the boss is along with you LOL!! PLus the finish is just so good.

The luxury of course is even better but I couldn't justify the extra for what it gave - another one? absolutely!!

Off topic but you guys started it. Wolfgang, I thought Mercs and Audis were affordable in Germany? If I was going for a better than average car I think it would be Lexus.

I'd be interested in how you find that Mushkin SSD. The price you posted is very good.

Yep sorry MJ my fault but you bring up a valid point as they seem to have them all over Africa too eh?

Still have been looking at the Sandisk stats and they do not look that bad either.
