We should start a hardware donation thread for all "goldmembers" as soon as I hit 2000 posts.

Nice, now the drives just need to drop by about a $100.

It will happen this early next year Brink. I am already running 2 Torqx drives.

Maybe I will get 2 more and set up RAID 1+0 just for fun. haha

The new firmware increases the sequential write performance of the drive as well according to the article.

new firmware for the 34nm NAND-equipped X25-M models. The firmware update brings a 40% boost in the drives' sequential write speed, which will thus top 100 MB/s, and adds support for the TRIM feature in Windows 7 which helps stabilize the performance and health of the SSD over time (and it really does that).

A 40% BOOST ! !

That's a good claim if it's 1/2 or 2/3 of the claim.

This s good news for the X25-M owners. I hope Indilinx is working on something similar. I have heard they are....

i just applied the firmware update to my machine. Process was very easy...it's an ISO file that you boot from. First boot into Windows and Windows found new hardware and had me reinstall.

The 40% write increase seems to be true according to various reviews and benchmark sites.

I needed to read more closely, the 40% sequential write performance boost was ONLY for the 160GB model of the drive....the 80GB remains the same....

Oh well, it's still super fast. But it has me wondering why they didn't increase the speed of the 80's.
