    @FRCorey - Samsung 830s and Intel 320s. Because they rock.

    Intel SSDs (LEB/LET is on Intel SSDs). Samsung 830's 120GB and upwards, the smaller ones have considerably slower read/write.

  • I heard the intel 320's sucked, or atleast, that's what I may of misheard :S! @Nick_A -- Higher Fail Rates, due to Firmware or something? OR was this resolved? I'm a tech channel follower and they've mentioned something about the Firmware on them intels.

    Not the 320s. I haven't even heard of a 320 failure among any of the several providers I've used overtime. Maybe you're thinking of the Sandforce ones.

  • There was an error in the 320 firmware which could cause the drive to pretty much brick in a power failure

    I think some provider here uses Intel 520, but i'm not 100% sure so i won't tell the name

    I do what I can! Other than that, 320s are very solid drives. We rent 80 nodes with intel ssds, we've not have one failure in a whole year.

    Is there a good LEB cheap provider with USA servers (XEN/KVM 256MB for 5usd) ?

    thx

    Same here. We use intel 320 and have not had any issue at all. I love them.
