I've had my Mini 9 for 2+ years now, and have waited (apparently in vain) for SSD
drive prices to fall. So, it seems there are STEC, RunCore, Super Talent and KingSpec that seem to advertize for the Mini 9.
Prices seem to put RunCore a bit above the rest. Is it worth the extra money for reliability or speed?
I currently have a 16GB STEC and it has been reliable. I just have so much trouble with space with each upgrade that I've actually done the last 4 upgrades to an external USB drive, leaving my internal drive with 10.5.11, and my external on 10.6.4.
As I am about to upgrade to 10.6.8 (?) I am wondering if now is the time to get a larger SSD
and install the upgrade on that, or even backup and wipe my 10.5.11 SSD
and install 10.6.0 then upgrade with the combo 10.6.8 upgrade.
DO we have any data on the reliability of RunCore vs anyone else, and how well other people have fared with 16GB, 32GB, 64GB or even 128GB SSD
