Which SSD is better?
I'm looking at these two SSDs from OCZ.

One is Vertex 3 Max IOPS,

and the other is Vertex 4

I'm wondering why they have a similar price, well with the rebates and discounts.

I mean, the Vertex 4 is newer, larger capacity (256GB), and seems to be faster.

Should I get the Vertex 4 or would you recommend a different brand/model (assuming that the price is not too far off).
I would use the SSD for Windows 7 Home Premium and other software like Adobe Photoshop, Lightroom, etc.
Data, etc, would be on a regular hard drive.

One more question.
If I want to switch my current SSD (120GB) with a larger capacity SSD (256GB), can I copy the content of the older one to the new one with EaseUS Disk Copy? Would it be alright that the destination drive is not the same capacity but actually larger?
