Right now Frys is selling this SSD for $70, right here on their website. It seems like a good deal, because last week they sold a force 3 128GB for $90, so you essentially save $20. Your opinions on this?

I think it is a good idea likewise. I myself own one bought on 6/12. Not only is the force gt a sychronous drive but it also has quite high write speeds. In my experience this translates to a great real world experience. My pc with win7 os boots in just 16 seconds or so. Furthermore from the reviews I have read the sandforce based corsair seems to have had less bsod or doa issues that plague the crucial m4. I paid 130 usd with a 30mir. 70 dollars is great. Plus the red looks even sleeker in person. :D

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

Scroll down to the Corsair section where you will find the Force 3 listed along with links to 13 technical reviews. Click on the links to read the technical reviews.

This is the second time in the last couple of days that I've seen a huge price reduction for a SATA 3 6Gb/s ssd. The other day the OCZ Agility 3 was on sale for $0.50/GB.
