Intel 330 256GB - Used for over a year

or

OCZ Vertex 460 120GB - New

Background
Bought a remanu ocz vertex 2, died within warranty period, was shipped a new Vertex 460 120gb yesterday.

I'm just gonna give one away, i think the 460 is faster but like the extra room on the 330. 2nd issue is health of the 330. Enclosed is the smart detail.. looks like its still in good condition..

The power-on hours count is a little weird, is that correct ? 989277 hours is 37428 days..

If the condition looks good, ill keep the intel ssd.

basically just spitballing here, but the power on hours count has a threshold of 0, which suggest to me that it might be counting down. If it started at 900,000 it would be roughly equivalent to 72 days of on-time. Depending on your usage, that might be it.

In reference to your actual question, I have no idea. Personally I'd just keep both, move my OS to the smaller drive and run pretty much everything else off the other one. But I'm not a ssd guru by any means lol.

My Intel Toolbox on a 320 series 80 GB SSD shows actual powered on hours, 15080 in my case.

What's the deal on that orange exclamation point on the System Tuner. I've never seen that. Has System Tuner been run on this SSD?

I'd see if I could get a later version of the Toolbox. Some of those entries shown don't even appear in my Toolbox for SMART details.

I'd certainly lean toward keeping the Intel, but I don't understand that powers on either. I think that model is only 3 years or so old, so would have nowhere near that many hours on it.

these are actually some of my smaller ones, i have a bunch of 750/500 samsung evo and pros, thats why I can give one of these away.. mostly leaning towards vertex

No idea about the orange exclamation, I just download the tool today to see how many hours it has on it. never ran those samsung magician on my samsung ssds also..

Capacity > whatever speed advantage the 460 has.

It's not like we're talking about a Crucial V4 or something.

use crystal-disk-info to show the real hours-on value , this smart value shown in intel toolbox as 'raw', and not the number of hours.
