    SSDs in the sweet spot: Modern contenders at 120-128GB
    Today, 120-128GB SSDs can be had for around $200, putting them right in the sweet spot typically occupied by our favorite CPUs and graphics cards. Since we don't yet have a real favorite among the current class of solid-state drives, we've spent weeks running nine SSDs through an expanded storage test suite on new Sandy Bridge hardware. Over the following pages, we'll take a closer look at Corsair's Performance 3, Force 3, and Force GT; Crucial's m4; Intel's 320 and 510 Series; Kingston's HyperX; and OCZ's Agility 3 and Vertex 3 SSDs to see which ones deserve a spot in your notebook or desktop PC.

    Re: SSD Reviews Thread

    Thanks for these reviews. Concentrated myself on the Corsair Force series, OCZ Agility and the Crucial M4. After reading the issues I think I will go with the Crucial drive, avoids the issues that might occur with Sandforce whilst still having good speeds and an 'extra' 8GB of space. The Corsair drives are cheaper but I don't want to take the risk for what will be a main OS/games drive.

    BTW how do you thank people? I can't see any icon for it.

    OCZ RevoDrive 3 X2 Review Update
    Over the summer we reviewed a pre-production version of the 480GB OCZ RevoDrive 3 X2 SSD. Even though the hardware and firmware were not final builds, the RevoDrive 3 X2 was still incredibly impressive, given the speedy PCIe interface and four SandForce SF-2281 processors. We've finally been able to log enough time with the production version of the RevoDrive 3 X2 and our excitement over the platform has done nothing but grow. In fact, the performance of the card rose so signficantly that we had to adjust the scale of our benchmark charts to compensate.
