Vertex 3 120GB $109

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Today if you're a newegg newsletter subscriber. Need two SSD's for RAID 0. Looks like since the kinks were supposedly worked out on the SandForce controllers newegg is still seeing about 33% BSOD complaints. Almost worth the risk for a single unit. But with M4's at $148 I'm second guessing a little bit since RAID 0 will increase my OS failure rate.

I hate to spend the extra $80, leaning toward it though. Wish I had seen the sale last week.

Anyway, before I made a final decision I just wanted to give any recent Vortex 3 owners a chance to chime in on their experiences so far.
