Hey guys,

I am looking to upgrade to a SSD. I have a choice between the Intel 330 120GB and the Corsair Force Series 3 120GB. I know that SSDs can fail out of nowhere, but roughly, which one of these 2 drives would last longer? Also, which of the 2 drives would be faster?

Many Thanks,

Well looking at their specs the Corsair would be faster but not by much, not even sure you'd notice but as for which one would last longer, I've seen more reviews of intel SSD dieing early then Corsair but all that his hear say, so I'd say they'd both probably last just as long, both have a 3 year warranty both are a very good brand, I know corsair has good customer service, haven't had a run in with Intel yet so I couldn't say so . . .

If it were up to me, I'd go Corsair.

Ive had no issues with my SSD except its a Force GT Series, I know has a few of their Neutron Series GTX's on sale that's worth a look.
