At $179 for the 128GB model, the price is really a shocker /shock.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':shock:' /> /shock.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':shock:' /> /shock.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':shock:' /> /shock.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':shock:' />

Indian pricing is Rs: 14900= $284.053 for the 128GB model... Can you say stupidly bad price?

OCZ was able to cut down on the price because they have complete control over the whole manufacturing process now. This is because they bought Indilinx a while back, who was known for their fast, reliable controllers back when SSD's first started to matter.

Anyway, the Vertex 4 is solid but it's not worth upgrading to if you already own the Vertex 3. Honestly, I think Samsung's 830 series is a better buy than the Vertx 4 right now. Samsung's drives are known to be insanely reliable. Not only that, but Samsung's new 830 series easily hangs with the fastest SSD's available, while being priced very competitively.

Obviously. But it is still a very nice price. The local price sucks though. Even Vertex 3s were cheaper at launch here :(

Side note for US residents: Corsair's Force 3 240GB SSD is [url="http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233268"]currently on sale at the egg for $229 USD[/url]. That's the cheapest price I've seen for a high-quality SATA III 240GB SSD. While this drive is almost a year old, it scored excellently in the reviews and is quite fast by today's standards.

There's even a MIR that brings the total price down to $200 USD. Awesome deal.

I happened to be shopping for SSDs on the day these were released, and they popped up half way through my browsing - I ended up buying nothing so I can wait to see how these pan out, one large capacity drive would e a good replacement for my RAID 0 Vertex 2E setup. Interesting point to note about that 'Indilinx' controller - its actually a Marvell one running Indilinx custom firmware:

these vertex 4s are nice. A single 128GB will satisfy my needs for my new build later this year hopefully.
