Also worth pointing out, that link on the first page now has the Corsair Force at £180.
youâll need a high quality SATA 6Gbps controller from an expansion card such as the Highpoint Rocket 620 to get the best out of the C300, the price goes up a further £40, taking the overall cost to £255 - £74 more than competing 120GB Sandforce SSDs

So it's a bit disingenuous to say things like:
Happy to be corrected if I've got this wrong.
