OCZ Vertex 2SE or 750GB Seagate 750GB MomentusXT Hybrid SATA III 32MB

750GB Seagate ST750LX003 Momentus XT Hybrid Solid State 2.5", SATA 6Gb/s, 7200rpm, 32MB Cache
but also just got a spare OCZ VERTEX 2SE 50GB
Question is which is faster at booting the OS? and are there any differences in read/write speeds? i have had a look but can't figure it out?
Big thankyou in advance.

The OCZ gives you more consistent performance, while the Seagate gives you more space. Your choice!

In practice you'll probably be CPU-limited in application installs and load times with the Vertex 2SE. And if files fly at >100 MB/s is not going to make an easily percievable difference if a faster drive could push 200 or 300 MB/s. It's the single-digit transfer rates of HDDs (in somewhat-random acess patterns like installations and application launches) which we really need to avoid.
