Corsair Series 3 vs Neutron
which one should I get? the force series 3 model is alot faster but I've heard some bad reviews about it. (crashes, instabillity, etc..)
but, these are manufacturer refurbished.. they got renewed and updated. what are the chance that a drive will fail again?
it's also slightly cheaper than the neutron.
could anyone suggest me which one to get?

  1. I personally would avoid manufacturer referb'd SSD's.

    If you are on a budget and can spare a few extra $$ get something like this:
  2. I would not get either. Also no way would I trust a refurbished SSD or hard drive either one. No guarantee that any problems were even found before it was reboxed. Get a Samsung 840. Most reliable drives on the market and faster. The 840 Pro is the fastest drive on the market but cost a bit more. You will never tell the difference without benchmarking programs. I still have an almost 3 year old 120GB Vertex 2 that is still amazingly fast compared to a hard drive. Windows boots in under 20 seconds.

    840 for $99 new.
  3. 1. The sellers on ebay are not factory authorized vendors. There is no manufacturers warranty.

    2. The prices you see on ebay are high. For those prices you could buy a brand new ssd from an authorized vendor and get the full manufacturer's warranty.

    I normally recommend Samsung. Crucial, Intel, and Plextor are also worth considering.

    I maintain the ssd database listed in the sticky at the very top of this forum section. Here is the link:
