  • New SSD Drive

    I need a new SSD drive to have more space for my VSL libraries!!! ;-) I hover between the Crucial RealSSD C300 128GB and the newer model the Crucial m4 SSD 128GB.

    Here are the specs:
    C300: 60.000 IOPS; 355 MB/s read speed at Sata3
    M4: 40.000 IOPS; 415 MB/s read speed at Sata3

    So what is more important for the VSL samples? Max. read speed or random 4K read? Are the samples smaller or bigger data files?
    I remember Cyril did a lot of testing for SSD drive and I searched the old threads but I couldn't find anything concerning IOPS.

    Cheers,
    Sabine
