a friend of mine suggested a corsair force gt 120gb (Link)

here s the link of an internet shopping website in India just to get you an idea of what brands and product numbers are available in India for purchase with the cost as mentioned in indian currency.

I would go with the cheapest one you can get from a respectable manufacturer which Corsair is.

U state the crucial m4 to be the best . right ?

a few queries:

1. MTBF =2,000,000 hours ( Its a lot of years so whats the point of the companies stating this in tech specs)

2. what are the key features as a guideline to compare ssd products

3. is de installation complex ?

4. what is the ideal method to efficiently use a 120gb ssd (interms of application priority)

I just checked in the indian market.Crucial ssd's are available but there is no service center for crucial yet.

Same case for OCZ

So can you please suggest something from corsair

First off You will see very LITTLe real life difference between the better Sata III SSDs ( ones that use Async NAND such as Agility IIIs will be lower). So instead of performance, use reliability and least user problems as your guidig light in selecting your SSD. While You WILL NOT buy from Newegg USA, the site is great for Looking at user reviews of the SSD you plan on buying.
I would not let availability of service center be a major stumbling point – local Service centers are not going to repair a SSD.

You probably will be very happy with the Corsair Force III, But it does indicate twice as many users have a problem with it as compared to the Crucial M4.
