    Is this a decent ssd or would I be better with a crucial m4?

    The Crucials are regarded very highly but it seems even they are not fail safe. Reports of failures hitting quite suddently at around 5200 hours of use.

    link here

    Crucial have annouced they are looking into it and will release a fix for them.

    The Corsair Force 3 had some eary teething problems but firmware updates seem to have resolved most issues.

    The F3's are bit cheaper, especially the 120GB+ ones so would get my vote.

    The most reliable ones seem to be Samsung and Intel drives at the moment.

    Ok thanks. Think I'll go with the 128gb corsair then.
