My System Specs

Default

Force 3 GT and Vertex 3 use synchronous ONFI 2.0 NAND, while the MAX IOPS version moves to Toggle NAND. Asynchronous NAND is used by the Force 3 and Agility 3 drives.

Something to keep in mind is that all of the drives you listed are based on the same Sandforce 2281 controller, so the GT and Vertex 3 will be effectively identical in speed. The MAX IOPS does gain some advantage with its superior NAND, but all three are subject to the same reliability questions around the SF-2281 controller. It's as yet too early to say whether the two-week-old firmware is the panacea everyone hopes, though it definitely has been an improvement.

Corsair does have a better reputation for customer service if something goes wrong.
