Windows 7: Show us your hard drive performance

I just checked the SSD prices in Australia. ....I'm not getting one for quite a while

Suddenly not so shabby. That's my rationalization and I'm sticking to it

The prices are dropping fast. Two weeks after I decided to purchase the SSDs, the price dropped USD100 each. And they're still dropping.

Tell that to these guys

Solid State Drives SSD

This is one on-line retailer I've used. They're pretty much all the same price wise . Still not dropping fast enough here

Here's what is advertized for the local retailer NewEgg. They always give good service and good prices.

I hope that monthly price drop keeps on going until it plateaus out near non-SSD prices

Even the prices on shopbot are enough to make me go ouch. Like everyone, I more than welcome a cheaper price and love a good price drop, but I personally just can't justify the current price per GB. Even I have my limits

I understand what you are saying. My plan is to use SSDs for the OS and files that change a lot. I'll plug in my 1.5 TB eSATA external HDD when a replacement arrives from Seagate (another story). That I'll use for bulk storage where bandwidth and access times are not an issue. The drive goes to sleep when it's not used for a while.

The performance of my RAID 0 is... well, I feel like crying or ripping my heair out.
I have no idea why the performance is so bad.

On WinXP I got 135/101/65 (max/avg/min)

2x 36GB Raptor MSI P43 Neo2-FR (ICH10R)

No doubt, but they are able to perform much better than this.

From 100 MB/s to 66MB/s ... and its not like its wear. They work, or they dont.
They even did 100 MB/s on an old nForce2 motherboard with XP1700+ and Win2000.

Hmm... that really says something about how old they actually are :P

Oh well, IŽll wait for SSD to mature som more. Maybe The OCZ Vertex or Vertex 2 will do the trick.
