I know the Corsair F-Series are really good SSDs. However, I've personally only used the Samsung 128GB (have it in a MacBook Pro) and it is awesome. Fast and no issues so far. I haven't actually installed Windows on it, but again, it seems to be just as fast as my Crucial C300 (which is SATA III and features a solid 80MB/s higher rated read speed.

And to a much lesser (ie: not important degree), the Samsung SSDs are actually rather nicely designed. I was surprised. With a window case you could catch some glimpses of it depending on your setup.

Intel is releasing their new SSD's soon. Prices should drop so I would wait and see before you get a ssd.

Wait IMHO.

OCZ Vertex 3 and the new intel SSD posted are coming, very soon.

Even if you don't have SATA 6, prices on the old drives will drop.
