    I was perusing the SSD section of Newegg today and noticed that series that I never saw before. I'm probably going to bite the bullet on a Corsair Force GS 240GB for $199 since their RMA process is painless, but it will be interesting to see what OCZ is doing these days since they always get a bad rap for crappy lifespans on their SSDs.

    Actually uses a proprietary OCZ controller and not marvel like the vertex series. Whether that is good or bad is up for discussion. It is faster than the vertex 4.

    I would certainly like one.

    From what i hear performance wise,its up there with the samsung 840 pro,as far as reliability you get a warranty for 20GB writes a day for 5 years which is ALOT.

    Are you sure you want an ssd then? Writes are ssd killers. If you write that much you might want to go with the ssd with the highest possible warranty.

    I think these Vectors are going to be smoking Fast with newer Firmware! Look at the Vertex 4 and what kind of whoop ass it released.
