Why do conservative politicians oppose conservation?
Have you ever stopped to think the long-term GOP immigration policy might be to make the United States of America a less desirable place to live than Mexico?

Just bought a Toshiba OCZ Trion 150 120G. Supposed to be good for the price... $45.

Without data this is largely just by "feel" and mostly irrelevant. I think it's also somewhat unfair to rank brands as a whole. There is a huge difference between basic bad drives like the Sandisk V300 and their newer stuff thats good. It also depends on how the drive is going to be used.

The $45 ocz I just installed is blazing fast! Makes the 2010 Lenovo business class pc feel like brand new! Fresh install of win7.

blazing fast is the opposite of reliability, especially when it's cheap.

i can't rank them, but i think you can look at the benchmarks and power consumption,
look at idle and writing's consumption, because when power loss, the less power it use,
less likely a data lost or brick.

cheaper SSD with less/smaller capacitors, look at Intel DC S3500 M.2 Enterprise SSD, big and a lot, (the brown ones)

look at the OCZ, tiny. maybe it won't flush all data, just try to save itself from bricking then shutdown

if have to choose reliability and cheap, for same price, i would choose used older high end, over new and cheap low end.

Crucial is on the list as well.

That said, if it were me, I stick with Samsung or Intel.

U can't just go by brand names like tv's. At least one Samsung version has a firmware issue.

Your #5 toshiba maker owns and puts their name on your #8 ocz. Ssd tech is maturing quickly. The lines between brands is blurring. I think u r safe as long as u don't rely on the very lowest end models to store valuable data that isn't regularly backed up.
