    Intel 510 or 520 series? Not considering the speed and price, which one is more stable, secure and reliable?


      Hello everyone. 


      I need to make a decision today because I am going to buy an SSD from Intel in tomorrow.

      I am designer, I am not gamer, I am not overclocker, I want a very very very stable machine.


      I am not decided about 510 series or 520 series.


      which the more reliable SSD from intel today?

      The 510 series with the marvell controller?

      Or the 520 series with sandforce controller?

      Without considering the speed and price, which is the most secure and reliable?
      Some reports on the Internet says that Marvell is much safer and that in  no have bugs and blue screens, other reports say that Intel spent a  year testing the new model and moved to sadforce. Other story says that  the intel moved to SandForce to compete with other manufacturers only  about on price and speed only, but the Marvell (even a little slower at  writing, it is safer). I'm confused and dizzy with so much information.

      So, forget the price and speed. Which is more stable, secure and reliable?


      I've heard very good things about the 510 series talking about reliability and  stability. (even in the  writing time Slower than 520 series).

      What peope think about the new 520 series? experiences of use.

      Is so good as the 510 series? Better than the 510 series? ( not considering the price and speed)  Or worse than 510 series with Possible infamous BSOD?

      have people using the 520 series? What are your experiences?

      THank you in advance.
