    For a while the Corsair Force 3 120GB has been the best on price/performance here in Sweden but just now the Agility 3 overtook it here as well. I'm tempted to get a second one, though for now I can squeeze the few games I really play onto the 120GB system drive anyway. Just darn Shogun 2 is 29GB though. :dead:

    actually OCZ solid state drives until recently cost more than the corsair drives they have almost identical performance and the cost difference is £10 on Ebuyer

    ive just stocked all the ocz range including the vertex 4 and compared to the corsair the vertex 4 is priced as good but you get more for your money storage wise but performance and speed you just cant beat the corsair force 3 gt

    I'm pretty sure the Vertex 4 is significantly better performing than the Force 3 GT, is it not?

    Vertex 3 Max IOPS vs. Force GT here: AnandTech - Bench - SSD

    yh max iops is but reading into the data transfer rate the vertex 4 has a lower data read and write.

    force gt 120gb 85,000 IOPS,

    • Max. Sequential Read Rate:555MB/s
    • Max. Sequential Write Rate:515MB/s
    • M.T.B.F.:2,000,000 Hours
    Vertex 4 128gb 120,000 4k read 90,000 and write is 85,000 IOPS

    • Sequential Reads - 535 MB/s
    • Sequential Writes - 200 MB/s
    currently cant find the M.T.B.F For the vertex 4



    ive got the vertex 4 on order for myself and stock and might do a test between the both models

    It was only your clause "performance and speed you just cant beat the corsair force 3 gt" that I wished to contest. If you do compare the Force GT and the Vertex 4, I'd be interested to see your results, presuming comparably sized drives.

    fair play was my clause :lol: i'll see what i can do towards doing a review at the moment thou corsair SSD's aint selling that well ocz thou now they sell really well, but tbh anythings faster than a hdd :D

    currently got the vertex 4 on offer at the moment, were also putting it in our i45 giveaway deal only because corsair said no thou.
