I don't own the c300, but I've been doing a lot of research as to what drive to buy. The c300 is only worth it if you're using sata 6g, otherwise probably a vertex 2.

Theres some complaints about marvel sata 3 ports bottle necking the drive. Not sure if this is a widespread issue or not. But you might want to look into it.

The vertex 3 is supposed to retail for 250-270, but retailers are price gouging at the moment to prices upwards of 320. I have read of people snagging them for the MSRP though.

If it's not a rush I'd wait to grab a vertex 3 for closer to its msrp.

Thanks for the info and the link. Rep to you. Unfortunately, I'm trying to burn an Amazon card. Vertex 3 is $308 at Amazon with 1-2 week shipping
