    • I wouldn't use them in a laptop, not to mention a server.

    • Liquidweb use them in mixture like Intel or crucial

    • Never used them in either, but I've used a OCZ Agility III one for home machines, and used 840 Pros and 830s for production.

    • I've got a couple of Crucial m4's in my machine at home and I can't really fault them.

      In our VPS nodes, we run Intel 520 series in RAID 10. I wouldn't trust the Crucial in a VPS node.

      I thought the main reason most don't use Crucial SSD's because they have a lower write rate in comparison to the equivalent (cost) Intel's

      Intel 520's performing ok for you? After the 320 Series fuck up where it had that small firmware issue, I'm scared to go near them.

      Yes they're top notch. In the VPS nodes I only use the 240GBs in hardware RAID 10. In the dedicated boxes we have 240GBs, 120GBs and the 60GBs and I can't say we've had any complaints at all. Five year warranty is nice too.

    • Crucial / Micron are huge. So why not? Crucial have a joint venture with Intel that makes some of the best NANDs. They are usually cheaper so lower performance is expected.

      @CheapVPS That is very nice.

      We're playing around with physical node costs, but the SSD's are being the biggest jump, I guess you can't get good quality, cheap.

      @Concerto49 Crucial, the guy who make the RAM sticks, right? Like Crucial Ballistix?

      Cheers - if you are after any UK based servers with the Intel SSDs, we've got loads of stock and I can sort you out a deal. Just give me a shout.

      Yes, they are one of the remaining memory makers too. Samsung, Crucial and Hynix.

      Why not?

      Since I've put a M4 in my ancient macbook, it is like a new machine.

      What about Kingston?

      Kingston just repackages like the other players. Same as GSkill, Corsair etc.

      It has 5 years warranty, but if you write more than X TB, the warranty is not valid.

      @ftpit - Crucial is basically Micron which has a joint venture with Intel. They make the bulk of all the SSD NAND that they use in their own drives, as well as their competitors. So yes, they are really good.
