Unless Im mistaken the CT is the Crucial V4. Thats a Phison base ssd. The Force 90 is a SF1200 ssd. Phison is about 3-4 gens old. The SF1200 is really two gens old now (as the nand has changed so much with the SF22xx series...hell a good argument could be made for three gens now). Basically...they are ancient in SSD terms.

Should you upgrade? Well do they feel slow to you? If they do the next gen will be about 2x fast or greater on app load time. So instead of 4 seconds it will be 2 seconds (mainstream vs mainstream). If they dont...why bother? ;)
