    Looking to pickup two 480GB SSD's to add to my cache pool that currently consists of two Intel 730's. I bought the 730's at a great price ($200 each) but now they are close to $300 each and can't swing that much.

    Are there any other good alternatives that will compare to the Intel 730's in performance and reliability?

    Someone on [H] has one listed for $180.

    The 730 alternative is the S3500 from which it's based on, but isn't as fast but more 'steady' in on going usage.
    Step it up to S3700 and you get the same features + more.

    Depending on your 'deal' or if you have to buy new these could be extremely more expensive to similar priced great deals.
