What +120GB sata3 SSD ?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
To save a few bucks I'm considering refrub'ed SSDs, how safe is that? I guess there's no telling what they replaced and how old the rest of it really is

I could buy a refrub'ed M4 128GB for $90, I have 1 and its fast and rated good from most everyone, pretty tempting but for another $30

A refrub'ed Corsair Force Series GT 120GB for $100, only read that they use tricky speed numbers

Otherwise what are the better models of 120-128GB sata3 SSDs, Any big sale dates coming up in Canada? I should go to bed and forget about the refrubs

Also what really is the diff between these various M4's

Refurbished SSDs are good but not for that price.I would give for refurbished M4 about 70$ and for Corsair Force Series GT 120GB 50$ or buy new one.
Only three deserves my money:
Any Samsung
Any Plextor
and Crucial M4.

Yes, I agree. I mean it is your data that will take a hike if the refurb turns out to be bad..

Obviously a refurb SSD is better then a refurb HDD in terms of this, but even so I'd be wary.

The M4 is leaps and bounds ahead of the Corsair, another thing to note is that these can generally be had for a bit over $100 new. Don't see why you'd go used tongue.gif
