Seagate 600 vs Vertex 3?

Recommended Posts

I picked up a cheap 240gb Seagate 600 drive over black friday I intended to use to upgrade a smaller drive in my laptop, but now I'm wondering if it's a better drive than the older vertex 3 240gb in my desktop. I can't really find a direct comparsion between the two and newer sandforce drives aren't quite the same and seem to have mixed results. Anyone have any thoughts?

Considering the reliability issues with the V3's, I'd go with the Seagate. I've had discussions with a co-worker about using our old Vertexs, and we decided even a 4 drive Raid1 wasn't safe enough.
