A reinstall of windows fixed my issue. I think it was one of those Windows 7 tweaks for SSD that screwed it up.

Ordered my new SSD, and it's not exactly what I was expecting to buy.

I ended up going with a Vertex Limited Edition 200GB. Sounds like a weird move, but the price was more that right.

Picked it up for $469AUD NEW. For reference, the cheapest Vertex 2 240GB at the same store is $669, while 120GB's are $299 (and these are now the cheapest Sandforce drives at the store). It's pretty amazing that these drives were over $1000 only a few months ago. Glad I waited! I was going to get 2 120GB drives even though I wanted to avoid RAID this time but it was a cheaper solution than a 240GB drive. So this solves that problem.. and yes I get less capacity, but I won't be needing more than 200GB for now.

I think the SF1500 drives also perform a little better than the SF1200/1222, even though the read/write specs for the LE are a little lower, I think random read/writes are faster. Doesn't matter too much, this is just to hold me oven until next year when I build a new rig that will undoubtedly have SATA3 and I'll get a new SATA3 SSD then.

Sorry I wrote that wrong, I haven't got my new SSD yet, just ordered it. I meant it's not what I was expecting to buy. I'll edit my original post I was eyeing off a Vertex 2 when Vertex LE's came back for rediculously cheap prices. They haven't been for sale at this particular shop for at least a couple of months, and were twice the price when they were last on sale.

Vertex LE is rated at 270/250mb/s read/write but I think the random read/writes are higher than any current SF based drives as well as the performance being a little better because more of the flash being set aside as a buffer just like the old 100/200GB SF drives. Since 200GB is enough for me I'm pretty happy with the price I got it for

You won't regret it. The Vertex drives absolutely fly.

I am eagerly anticipating what the new SATA3 controllers bring but for now I'm not looking to upgrade my system until at least the second half of next year so buying a well priced SATA2 drive made sense.

There are certainly a lot of iffy brands releasing SF based drives and I'm prety wary of them. I was always only comfortable going with OCZ, Corsair, G.Skill, Mushkin and Patriot as I know they all make good RAM. I think if you do this you shouldn't be burnt. Besides, all of them are using Intel 25nm flash memory now anyway That's one of the reasons they've been able to get so cheap.
