He's only using it as an OS drive. There won't be any large or even continuous writing going on here. It'll be mostly reads.

Although, if the OP plans on doing any type of writes to this drive routinely, then I agree, go with the Corsair and it's much faster write speeds.

corsair force f60 is pretty much the same price as the c300 64gb.

loosing 4gb of space but as you's have said it has a much much much higher write speed.

will 60gb be adiquate for an OS boot drive or should i pay the extra £40 for an F90?

edit just seen buy.com have a 90gb corsair f90 for £127 delivered that seems abit of a bargin to me

but the Kingston V+ got good average writing and reading speed and higher capacity than others....

Kingston just seems second tier to me. If you're gonna drop all that cash on something like this, I would get a major reputable brand. But that's just me.

Intel's new stuff should be available today. But the C400 was set for at least a few more weeks i thought. Intel's new 3rd gen ssds are by far the bigger improver tough -- 500MB/s read and 300+MB/s write.

I think the F90 is a great choice, and very capable.

I take it I wouldnt notice the 80mbs read speed difference between that and the C300?
