Next year they will be way cheaper so it's a good time to buy one. Do it. You will love it.

Aren't there significant write performance degradations as the drives fill up still with these SSD drives? In the past, it seemed they screamed out of the box, but over time as blocks got used, a write operation consisted of a read, an update, an erase and then finally a write sequence. I know we had some MAC users in my shop who went banannas for their SSD drivers...but over time their MAC's slowed to a crawl. A few of them got new MAC's and opted to standard hard drives again because of this performance issue.

I figured I would ask the fellas here who are investing heavily in these drives for some input.

I paid $379 for mine. Here is where I got it.

Newegg.com - Patriot Torqx PFZ128GS25SSDR 2.5" 128GB SATA II Internal Solid state disk (SSD) - Solid State Disks

The Gskill 1066Mhz RAM is great too!
I'd rather go for the Corsair Performance SSD's or OCZ's Vertex.

Here's my HTPC, looking to upgrade the case so it matches the rest of it but just can't decided yet. The Sky box has now gone upstairs so there is room for a full height HTPC case.

There are issues still but the new generation with the Indilinx (barefoot) controller has addressed the issue. Patriot just came out with a 10 year warranty for these drives...I think they want us to "test" the controller for them over time. I am happy to do it!

In some games, especially console ports, the 360 controller is the way to go
