I have yet to see this show up as in stock at any other retailer. Amazon currently has it up for pre-order but list the price at [ame="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0051A8T52/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?ie=UTF8&m=ATVPDKIKX0DER"]489.19[/ame] for the 120GB version as well as the 240GB. I have heard rumored ETA of 06/11/11 from several less reputable websites, so seeing this up on Newegg was a nice surprise.

For comparison The Vertex 3 Max IOPS lists a Random Write 4K of 75,000 IOPS. I have yet to see the two compared in in any independent benchmarks.

Man these things are fast, is there anything faster outside of Raid configurations?

Definitely not in this price range.

I picked up 1 myself, I am waiting to see what price Amazon puts on them once they correct the price issue. (Called them about it, they said Corsair set the price then realized there was indeed a mistake, it is now flagged for senior review)

If Amazon puts it $210 or below I planned on picked up a second to RAID. Overkill, Yes, but this is OCN after all. wink.gif

I wonder if they're worth it at this price if their supposed MSRP is $219.99.

Considering the current availability I figured this is something of a deal. The closest competitors in terms of performance are still $50-70 more than this (without shopping for deals.)

Think this is better than a Vertex 3?

MSRP is $220, if it's over $230 I'm not considering it.

We have yet to see truly unbiased benchmarks, but I think it will be hard to tell apart from a vertex 3 in real world performance.

And the vertex 3 had an MSRP of 279.99 for the 120Gb version. I see it currently going for $299. (Retailers are blaming NAND price fluctuations due to the Japanese Earthquake for the increase.)

As long as this can outperform the 128Gb M4 I put in my roommates computer a week or two back I do not mind paying a little extra, especially with how good the customer service is on newegg.


Also, I suppose one could create a new account and try the $10 and $15 off $50 codes for new customers, to put it closer to $223/228 after shipping.
