You know, I just cannot believe that you will be able to actually see or feel the difference between the Revo and a nice SATAIII SSD.

It seems to be coming down to bragging rights now.

Not good if he managed to go back in time with only one, he could be stuck there for years!! Just think in the 1950's he would need a card the size of a block of flats to get back again!!

Well, if you had a REVO as a source and a REVO as a destination, and you performed a straight up file copy from 1 to the other, you could completely fill the 240GB in just over 5 minutes.

Unless you were using REVO's as storage space, I'm not sure real world day to day usage would really improve substantially. A quick review of YouTube shows approx 14 second bootups...which is about what I get with my Intel X25-M G2 80GB running on SATA 3.0Gbps. It would crush be in benchmarks, and raw file copies...but in launching Windows 7, Office, Chrome/Firefox, TrueCrypt, Paint.NET, or Sony Vegas Movie Studio HD...difference will be negligible at best.

Exactly, day-to-day use it is a waste of hard earned cash. Maybe if the price ever drops to a point where the average everyday user could justify this kind of upgrade it might be worth a second thought but not until then, IMHO anyways.
