    I wouldn't get another OCZ drive

    I'm looking at the Corsair F3 120 LN43989 / LN39467 or Crucial M4 128 LN39099 for my new laptop.
    I just want to know why you sent it to Scan instead of OCZ? you've had it a year...

    I've had a 60GB Corsair F60 and upgraded to a 120GB Corsair Force Series 3 and wouldn't be without it, great drive.

    Re: best 120gb SSD to buy?

    i have force GT, samsung 830, intel x80 and an OCZ petrol (not tested yet).

    The intel is the oldest drive and it seems to be running quite slow if im honest... might need to give that one a reformat. In real life, the Force GT is the quickest, followed closely by the Samsung and im yet to try the petrol.

    Build quality, packaging, bundled equipment, software and physical appearance wise, the samsung blows them all out of the water!

    Re: best 120gb SSD to buy?

    i dont think the petrol will come anywhere near the speeds of the other 2 - from what i have read, the petrol is supposed to be an entry level with budget price in mind.
    my force gt is doing great!

    Indeed. I got the ForceGT a few weeks ago, its a amazing drive, I'm finding its faster than my previous SSD (Cruicial M4). I also bought a Force 3 for my laptop, great drive.

    If you have the money then get the ForceGT, if your on a smaller budget grab the Force 3

    Re: best 120gb SSD to buy?

    This is the drive I am going to buy
    120GB Corsair Force GT

    If speed and performance is important to you, then you wont go wrong with this one.

    Great reviews all round, no troublesome set up issues that I am aware of. Better to pay £25-£30 extra for this one rather than one of the cheaper ones as they can be a real headache.

    Please do not recommend competitor's products here in the Corsair section.

    A slight exaggeration there but given your bias Il let you off ;-)
    Problem with the Neutron is it doesn't have the same proven reliability.

    Of course I am biased but then I work for Corsair, this is the Corsair section, and the reviews for Neutron GTX are fantastic. It uses a proven controller from a proven company with a good history in the enterprise/server sector and high quality NAND.

    Indeed, i dont disagree the points, im just saying this specific drive needs to stand the test of time in the same way that the samsung drives have done so far.

    The Samsungs didnt exactly explode into the scene, it took them time to gain traction. As long as there is no suprises im sure the Neutron will be the same, as you said the reviews so far have been top notch.
