    Ok, so I'm about to buy XPS 17 (L702X). Right now, I want to buy SSD for it (to install the Windows 7 on it, and heavy++ games). So now, I have 4 options... which is the best? less issues? the fastest?

    Edit:
    Ok, so I think to take:

    Intel SSD 510

    OR

    Crucial M4 SSD

    Vertex 3 MAX IOPS would be the fastest

    There are some reports in this forum of compatibility issues with the OCZ drives/controller and the XPS systems. I vote Crucial (M4 just came out which replaced the C300).

    I bought a 120GB Intel 510 Series for $249 on Buy.com. :D

    Reliability matters. ;)

    i have a Vertex 240GB (none max-iops :( ) and yes you have to know what your must do with installl (use the latest Intel F6 driver at install time) and disable the LPM after that through a registry setting.

    But when done that i am very content with my Vertex, it is way faster then my previous intel 160GB G2

    If reliability matters, I'm not sure why you ordered from Buy.com! :p

    $71 cheaper than newegg, and verified by Intel to have a 3 year warranty direct from Intel ;)

    About the 4K, Intel's SSD fail...
    So I think I will go for Crucial M4, no?
    or still, the Intel's one?
