    Conclusion: Buy an Intel 80GB, but wait, we already knew that 0_0 - also there is two of the same graph on 'Crystaldisk' page with the random 4K read's missing.

    for all intents it seems to be the same card minus some gays name on it and a shielded cover ? with OEM added to it - GoNz0.

    I'm actually hurt that you think this.

    There's an upcoming review of the Crucial C300 - next week, I hope - and it will have the two Corsair drives in it.

    Re: Reviews - Corsair Nova V128 SSD review

    Would have liked to see it compared to the Intel drives. Comparing it amongst other SSDs with the same controller is useful, but since the prices and performance is very similar, it'd be nice to see them compared to drives with different controllers.

    It stands for Not AND. AND standing for and.

    $s = new signature();
    $s->sarcasm()->intellect()->font('Courier New')->display();

    Nonetheless, it would have been very interesting to have a comparison with the X25-M in there
    The Vertex was a welcome addition though.

    We've begun with a slightly modified set of benchmarks and will be adding drives to the newer suite as we receive them.
