Nice competition corsair..nice. At least with SF2xxx OCZ is not the only one playing around. Now we should see some price drops.

I wonder which of the 3 companies is more reliable? I bet its corsair.
OCZ said all in now Corsair is matching their rase.

Very nice indead, now all we need is TRIM support for RAID 0 setups. It also seems the prices of fast SSD are going down, let the competition begin....

Remember, Corsair is dealing with Memory and now SSD's along with other stuff like Power Supplies etc.., but OCZ scrapped Memory and are putting all efforts into SSD, so the competition is going to be nuts, but good for us. Both companies are reliable with good warranties...

I'll second the motion for TRIM support for RAID 0 setups - many of us are waiting for that.

Internal Garbage collection works with RAID 0 and with any OS no matter if it supports TRIM or not.

The new SF controller are an improvement in performance after torture without trim but with trim its better

OCZ currently has faster SSD's at a better price, but I do admit Corsair is catching up quick. Good news for everybody...
