520 are the high end consumer series. 330 are the more lower mainstream series

OCZ Agility 120GB for $83.

Worth it?

Apparently wisdom is to avoid OCZ SSDs like the plague.

Been reading nothing but horror stories as of late. If you need cheap, maybe go AData or Sandisk, newegg even has several Mushkin SSDs for pretty much $1/1GB.

Do you do daily backups?

Are you in the US? If so, and if you don't have to have the drive immediately, wait and see what Newegg puts out for 4th of July sales. They had some great prices on Samsung SSDs for Memorial day and will probably do it again....only 4 or so weeks away and could save you some pretty good coin.

Yeah. Only try ocz if it's very cheap and you can survive when it dies. My whole system backs up weekly. Important files are dropboxed. So when I lost one ocz I could easy rebuild on my remaining SSD within an hour. The drives were dirt cheap and still a great upgrade. But if I could do it again I'd go Intel.

My OCZ 200GB Vertex LE died within a month (took me a few months after purchasing to actually install it), they sent back a 240GB Vertex 2. I was happy and have had good luck with the Vertex 2 so far (almost a year I guess).

Hopefully that is the last drive replacement you need, at least for a couple of years.

Well I got my replacement for my dead Vertex 2. It's an Agility 3. It's a step up, but not as much as I wanted. Oh well. It's in the RAID Array of Death now. Just waiting Max Payne 3 to kill it's brother.

I just ordered a 128GB Crucial M4 for my Macbook Pro, should be here in a day or two. Been wanting one of these for my laptop ever since I bought it. I did buy a Seagate Momentus XT 500GB HDD last year and it's done really well, but I know the SSD will blow it out of the water. My goal is to buy an Optibay to replace the SuperDrive with the 500GB HDD so I have extra storage if I need it.
