You'll find different sites using a variety of benchmarks trying to simulate average use, but probably for a system/application drive 4K random reads is as good as any. In any case, there doesn't seem to be much real difference between SSDs in typical desktop use. I think reliability is a more important criteria then speed in benchmarks. My own choices would be the Crucial M4, Intel 520, and Samsung 830, depending on price. Having said that, the reliability issues that have plagued Sandforce controllers seem to have been solved and most drives should probably be ok now. Prices have really come down lately and with a little patience, waiting for a sale, they can often be found for less than $1/GB.. For example last week a 256 MB M4 was on sale for $209
