Legit Bottom Line: Corsair's Performance 3 Series is a big step up from the previous generation with the SATA 6Gbps interface giving it room to stretch its legs. However, they face stiff competition from the similarly equipped Intel drives and the emerging SandForce based drives so how fast they

I've had it for a week, and using it as OS drive with some apps and a few games. It's lightning quick. Much better at reads then writes. Bechmarked it to 350mb/s read, 205 write. It's easily detected in bios and in windows recognizes it's an ssd, no need to tweak anything. I paid 229 after mail in rebate so I think it's a fair deal, 299 is a bit much.
Ok so I bought 2 of the new 16 chip design OCZ Vertex 2 SSDs and I honestly wasn't that satisfied with their performace. So I decided to blow some more money and I took a chance with Corsair. Let me start by saying I have NEVER owned any memory solutions by Corsair, all of the RAM, USB Sticks, etc I have ever purchase have been from OCZ. After my experience with the two Vertex 2 drives I pruchased I feel that I wasted my money and now I wish I would have bought 2 of these instead.
My first experience with SSD so I decided to pull the stops out and get a SATA 6BG version. This means I can't compare to SATA 3GB models but the speed of this drive is just silly quick. Windows boots in seconds, Visual Studio 2010 boots in 2-3 seconds. Just a shame its that much more expensive than the previous gen but I guess that's to be expected.
very good quality, i actually have Curiual RealSSD 128GB but it is dead yeseterday and I sent it back to RMA , on the same day (yesterday) I bought this Corsair, and it's more stable. perhaps i should have to update the firmware on my RealSSD before.. just lazy
