Windows 7: I'm new to the SSD arena so I have a few uestions

Yep well I said just what everyone is saying a but earlier it is like having a cheap Hyundai car or an expensive Mercedes either can breakdown because of many factors so it is with hard drives. The bottom line is really luck if the truth were known.

My pick are the Samsung's and followed closely by the SanDisk's which I haven't heard much about but the one I have had is still mega quick and it is now three years old.

Now I have done a bit of reading on Kingston products in particular their RAM as I want some more in this machine and I was surprised to see they are the largest manufacturer of memory in the world and yet their SSD's get not a great deal of mention.

As for that country I would guess New Zealand as I know they pay over the odds for computer parts - well compared to Australia where stuff is not that cheap either. I envy the US folks for their access to cheap gear but I suppose I shouldn't say it is cheap because I don't know what the equivalent individual in my occupation would be earning there. Just a by the by I watch Judge Judy and Hard Core Pawn sometimes and am amazed at what pitiful amounts of money are involved when people are selling or suing for money.

Mmm that is rather impressive going on the sales pitch and even at slightly lower R/W it would still be quick. Haven't been able to locate it out here but I guess it must be available somewhere but I wonder at what price because as I mentioned earlier we pay premium prices for computer parts compared to the US for example.

OK, I`m gonna let everyone in on a secret, but don`t tell anyone else.

Every memory stick and every ssd ever made have all been made by Kingston and sold to these companies who just slap a label on it

True Story

Corsair = Kingston
GSkill = Kingston
PNY = Kingston
Samsung = Kingston

Accept for Dell, they make all their own parts and we know how reliable they are.

Are you sure. What about OCZ, Crucial, Mushkin and the others. I know some Mushkins have Intel controllers. And OCZ was probably one of the first to make SSDs.

Kingston was here before any of that stuff

The controllers are installed in a small wooden shed out back with a sign over the door that read Intelephone, but the ephone paint chipped off and they never fixed it due to lack of funds.

Mm I was just going on this
Kingston Technology - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia because Kingston according to this only came about in 1987 and I knew about SanDisk which is one I absolutely trust from way back before then (ie. I always get SanDisk for the camera's).

But I suppose it is like a lot of stuff we use like PSU's for an example the number of manufacturers for the Corsair range is quite astounding eh?

Whs, read speeds of up to 1400MB/s and write speeds hitting 1000MB/s is amazing!
The Land of the Pharaohs is going through a patch of crazy weather (Egyptian spring) which basically is one hot summer day followed by a cold winter day, this goes on until winter discovers that he is going to get beaten by summer and leaves.
