    Why is the Crucial M4 being benchmarked with firmware 0001? The newer firmwares make a massive difference to the speed?

    Yes, very poor comparison.

    Also the Corsair 120GB Force GT has come down to £135 in recent weeks, this offer's a more consistent high performance on all data types - this makes a much better buy and really does make the Kingston a bad buy in comparison.

    Re: Reviews - Kingston SSDNow V+200 (120GB)

    i was wondering why it wasn't compared to the agility 3, because as mentioned it seems it's kingstons version of that drive. so i was wondering what is faster

    but with the a3 being £105 or so for the 120gb at the moment, and this being new and £120, what would be the point in going for the new drive, over the a3? presumably by the time the kingston is in the market the a3 will be closer to £100

    i have an older kingston v100 in my macbook which is a great drive. it certainly brings an old laptop to life, and in general i've read nothing but good things about kingston SSD's whilst the OCZ drives are getting a bit of a dodgy rep. in saying that i got an A3 120gb the other week which gives a 2.5 quad core 8gb ram desktop a nice boost

    the older SSDs have fallen in price so much recently that the OCZ petrol budget drive doesn't seem much of a bargain when you can get an older faster model for about the same price or even cheaper

    I would imagine they are very similar, all drives using this controller seem all generally the same and all have the same issue with compressed data.
