OCZ are not going to be happy!
Faulty drives perhaps given the pitfall on that one test that a combination of NAND (regardless of asynchronous or synchronous) and the Sandforce 2281 controller seems to be woefully slow?
Ran same tests here, got pretty much the same results apart from the first test which was again nearing the Vertex 3 speed.
Giving an excuse of "down to asynchronous instead of synchronous NAND" is a cop out as an excuse considering the force 3 performsa smidge slower than the v3 yet uses the asynchronous nand and the force GT uses synchronous hence the fact it is pretty much identical to the v3 in how it performs.
How it can be as fast as the v3 (within reason) on all tests bar one (reading the custompc mag) and then all of a sudden be 60% slower on another? Im seeing speeds app 20Mb/s slower.. not 2-300mb/s slower...

£1.10/GB actually. Ace how aggressive Crucial is being on pricing. I think that SandForce drives have to pay a LOT more for the drive controller licensing, hence the higher price, despite the same amount of NAND on-board.
