While I completely agree, I think you should also know that the issues with the vertex 3 has been mostly fixed since they started shipping with newer firmware. Heck, I have two corsair force 3 SSDs in raid 0 back when the sandforce controllers were having the issues and I am still running strong with no issues.

Well im not trying to be a sandforce hater, but Sandforce kinda stinks when dealing with incompressible data. Id still go for a Crucial M4 or a Samsung 830 becuz they deal with compressible and incompressible data on about the same speed (at least i think that is)
