    Crucial m4 vs. Mushkin Chronos

    I'm trying to purchase an SSD to do the usual boot drive + a game if it will fit. Trying to spend less than $100, and these two seem to be the best options. I realize that people are going to tell me to go for the 120gb, but I really just don't have the extra $40 that I'd like to spare right now, and I figure I can just raid0 two 60gb down the road, can't I? So, MMO-C, which do I choose?

    or

    Thanks!

    Really, flip a coin. They are both good SSDs with good histories and are stable and have great performance. I'm inclined to say the Crucial m4 because I own one, however I have nothing against Mushkin and would not mind buying any of their products.

    Up to you! :P

    I guess I should also ask if the transfer kit serves any real advantage, because I'm not completely sure how transferring a windows installation or any of that works.

    I would personally go with the Mushkin Chronos as it is definitely a faster drive and just as reliable drive.
