Hi, im thinking about OCZ Vertex 4 128GB.

I have read that some people have problems with OCZ in G75VW.

Which SSD is best for G75VW?, Samsung, Corsair, OCZ, Crucial, Kingston?

Another question: The notebook runs 6gb/s?

I have not seen pictures of any user that shows SSD running at 6Gb / s in G75VW.

Someone has G75VW SSD?, Has over 400MB / s read and write?

Yes it is sata 3 so 6 gb.

Different people have different brand loyalties. In a nice machine like this I would not ( personally ) ever put in an OCZ drive.

I recommend the Intel 520 series or the Samsung 830 series. I have 2 180 gb Intel 520's, 1 120 gb 510, and a slightly older samsung ssd. All four of them are solid drives so far.

Why not OCZ Vertex? why it is a bad idea....

and why samsung is better...

i think is the same thing jeje

Lots of failures with people running OCZ drives and not just in asus laptops like here. OCZ customer support is supposed to be pretty good but reliability not so much.

samsung 830 256GB is very very expensive, more than OCZ!.

which gets more mb / s?, you know?

and, what about Kingston?, Crucial?

You have to remember the 6Gb/s is the total bandwidth, but the transfer speeds are of course meant to be slower. It's the same as say your internet connection...you have the rated connection speed, but your upload and download speeds are only a fraction of the total bandwidth available to you :)

Crucial M4s are good.

i dont know which is the best SSD for G75VW. Samsung or OCZ, both are good.

Samsung 830's. If money is a issue Kingston HyperX use the same controllers and memory as the Intel 530's and are dirt cheap and I been keeping 2 in raid for a while with no issues.

I have a samsung 830 and it's excellent. What I like is their software, "magician". It optimizes windows settings for you by a click. It's very fast.

I got this one installed:

Flawless performance so far

Well, samsung 830 is the best for G75VW?, works with no problem at all?

I have got the OCZ Vertex 4 250GB SSD installed in my G75-VW for about 6 months now with no problems what so ever :) I beleive that the issues people had was with the Vertex 2 or 3 series with the old architecture. The Vertex 4 series have the latest Everest 2 arcitecture which performance wise is on par or slightly better/worse is specific areas when comparing with Intels or Samsungs.
I decided to get it becaue of a number of review i read prior to getting it and it out performed most in its class such as Intels or Samsungs. In terms of reliability i cant tell you how good it is because its a relativley new products of OCZ but so far ive had it for 6 months and seems to be working great :) The vertex 3 has a bit of a bad reputation as apparently many people have reported failures and such issues but i have not seen any negative issues with people who have installed the vertex 4 SSDs...

If you choose OCZ then make sure when you buy it you install the latest firmware on it before installing windows onto the drive so that it works at its optimum performance with Everest 2.

Heres an in-depth comparison: http://www.anandtech.com/show/5719/ocz-vertex-4-review-256gb-512gb

Why many people prefer to 256GB SSD?, why not 128GB?

you can do some benchmark?, I would like to see the speed.

Personal preference. That's like asking why is person A eating 2 plates of fried rice why not just 1 plate? Maybe Person A is more hungy and has more appetite meaning the people that are using 256gb are the ones that need more space for games/applications and even media files.

There is no such thing "yet" as Intel 530 ... there is a 330 and 520 ...

I am running a pair of Samsung 830 @ 512GB each in RAID0 and love it! The 2 drives cost the same as the computer but they rock!

Color me ... extremely jealous!

Still for me the combo of an Intel 520 180 gb and a 1 TB second drive works very well. Not really convinced there would be ( for my kind of usage requirements ) any tangible differences between your setup and mine.

Regardless though I am still ... extremely jealous!

the best SSD is the Corsair Neutron Series (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233340) or the Corsair Neutron Series GTX (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233342).
its very fast and more reliable and doesn't slow down when full like most of the other ssd plus toggle nand :D

Funny you should say that, the matching Neutron GTX 120GB is slower than the GT I have...well according to the product info: 555 read and 330 write...my GT is supposed to get 555 read and 515 write, though the IOPS, for what it's worth are slower on the Neutron GTX.

first of all the force GT is one of the best ssd around
the differences between force gt and neutron gtx is the toggle nand ,the IOPS way better in 4k ,the LAMD controller which is way better than sandforce SF-2200 ,3 years warranty vs 5 years warranty and the most important is the ssd performance loss when its full ,i've seen some sandforce ssd loose more than 75% of their performance when less than 50% empty ,the neutron gtx loose a maximum of 6%...

I am researching RAID at the moment and ran into this post.

I am certainly no expert when it comes to this, but I can tell you that the advertised read/write speeds are different for the two aforementioned SSDs (at least as far as the Samsung 830 series SSDs are concerned).


Sequential read/write MB/s:

64GB = 520/160
128GB = 520/320
256GB = 520/400
512GB = 520/400


Random read/write IOPS:

64GB = 75000/16000
128GB = 80000/30000
256GB = 80000/36000
512GB = 80000/36000

What John said - ha ha ha!

At the moment I am thinking I am going to set up mine for RAID 0 with two of the 256GB Sammies. I am new to RAID, but so far it looks like this is the best way to go for raw speed. I will continue researching.....

Always knew the Force GT was awesome...go red and black!! lol...now they just need to put the neutron's in red also, it's why I bought my GT in the first place...i'm a sucker for red and black lol. And also, thanks for the info about the differences :)

It was quick and easy to upgrade to the raid setup. I purchased the G75VW- not sure what model but it came with 12GB and 750GB standard drive. I updated the recovery utility (must be on latest version for > 1TB drives), burned the recovery disks, removed the 750GB and installed the two new Samsung 830's, booted, hit <ctl><i> to configure the raid volume and then booted the recovery DVD's and restored the system and it was done.

It has been trouble free since I installed it. I'm extremely happy with the performance. It's the fastest computer I've ever owned.

Wow, that sounds easier than I thought it was going to be. I think I am going to give it a whirl tomorrow.

Thanks!

Thank you for posting this.

Interesting regarding the Samsung 830 series drives: In every one of their tests the 256GB model was faster than the 512GB despite the two having the same advertised speeds, and the 128GB and 64GB models were faster than the 512GB despite actually having lower advertised speeds....

I have the CORSAIR FORCE GT SATA 3 180GB and it kicks major a$$. That being said I'm sure there are other choices. Right now this drive (180GB) is available for 170ish on amazon though, so it's a good deal from what I've seen of other offerings. I've never had any issues with it, Windows gives it a 7.9 on the rating scale if you install the OS (that's the highest score attainable) and I've been running it for 3 months now with no issues!
