Corsair Force 3 Series 240gb 149.99 at NCIX (refurb). Should I jump on this deal?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So NCIX extreme deal of the day is this:

http://ncix.ca/products/?sku=76780&promoid=1146


Is there anything wrong with the Force 3 series from corsair like there is with some sandforce based drives? or is this one of the more reliable drives like the ones intel produce? I have never owned a sandforce ssd before so I just wanna make sure before I think about getting this. I know it is refurb but I have had good luck with refurb products in the past so I don't think it really matters.

thanks

No it is expensive, it should be cheaper. The Intel 330 and sandisk extreme 240GB were $140 new multiple times...Agility 4 256GB was 100 recently lol

In the US. How about in Canada, though?

usually computer hardware is around the same price in canada when compared to the states so I guess I will wait for something cheaper then.

The only difference I can see is that there are way more sales in the states. There are a lot of price reductions compared to canada like on newegg.com which I can't order anything from unless I get it sent somewhere near the border and I go pick it up.

thanks for the help sean thumb.gif
