    Now double the capacity, does this Force LX make sense?

    "We'd recommend a price snip"

    I'd also recommend a change in colour scheme...white & Green, YUK!! if you have a case with a nice side window and colour matched components, white & Green goes with virtually nothing out there.

    ..you have your nice NZXT 440 in red/black or white/black with 2 SSD mounts right on display, there is no way I'd consider putting SSD's with this colour scheme in there.

    Oh Bagpuss, don't be silly, the thing's so small you would barely even see it (the SSD I mean)...

    Re: Reviews - Corsair Force LX SSD (512GB)

    Isn't the Force SSD series supposed to have the highest failure rate in comparison to other SSDs?

    Going on the article, the fact that you can get a "better" performing Crucial for less money is more of a purchase killer. Not that I'm in the market anyway, my current combo of Samsung 840EVO's plus a Seagate SSHD doesn't keep me hanging around.

    Career status: still enjoying my new career in DevOps, but it's keeping me busy...

    Re: Reviews - Corsair Force LX SSD (512GB)

    It should be noted that, just like on the Crucial MX100 review, there seems to be a typo regarding MX100's controller, namely Marvell 88SS9187 is presented on both reviews to be the controller of MX100, whereas the actual controller is Marvell 88SS9189. It is only the M500 that has the Marvell 88SS9187 controller.

    Why "approve" this drive at all? No reason to buy it whatsoever.

    The MX100 seems like far the better buy being £50 cheeper for the 512 model.
