I have read of others having great scores with the M4's, they just didn't work out for me, not my system either as far as I can tell, I have three other sets of raided SSD's and they all perform to specs., and yes, this is a SATA III system (AMD 850 southbridge).

|JamesOrlando||Wow I was not even aware of the force series 3! Haha I cancelled the order and am waiting for the new drives to be released.|

|alexsoccerboy||The Corsair force series 3 does seem to be priced more reasonably, but more importantly, this very drive, the m4 128gb was on sale (for all of an hour or less) at Newegg last week for $179, so it's probably worth waiting for a better price on it or the stock to arrive on the Force3 .|

The m4 really isn't that good of an SSD. Corsair has their SandForce drive coming out in the next week or two for the same price.
The SF performance is much better than the Marvell controller used in the m4 and Intel SSD 510.

|ZoNtO||You posted this deal in the perfect way. Here's to hoping Amazon pricematches so I can use my gift certificate on this bad boy!|

not a bad deal.
the 256gb m4 is already available and IN STOCK for $469.95, this is about $40 cheaper than it was going for about 2-weeks ago from other sources.

"Preorder" Crucial m4 128GB SSD, $218.99 + variable shipping
B&H Photo and Video has a "limited supply" of Crucial m4 128GB drives for $218.99, no tax (in Texas at least). Here's what they say:
I don't know what their "limited quantity" is, but one guess could be that it's their way of saying that the item is not in stock at this moment. I suppose that you could cancel if you get tired of waiting or a better deal comes up.
Here is the B&H link.
B&H # CRM4128SSD
Newegg has it for $259.99.
Amazon is about $250 or slightly less.
This is the first time that I have posted a deal, so please accept my apologies if I didn't do this the right way.
