Yeah, some of those people on the OCZ forum are very high strung. I go there only for some of the good tutorials, but the discussion threads are not worth it. Also too many "fumblers" who twist and tweak for no apparent reason - sometimes even the wrong reasons.

I hope I made the right pick as I just bought the Newegg.com - OCZ RevoDrive X2 OCZSSDPX-1RVDX0240 PCI-E 240GB PCI-Express x4 MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) at a discounted price of $610 total with $115 discount and an extra $2.99 discount for preferred account and free shipping and interest free for 6 months. It is my tax return gift to myself. When I get it and install it I will let you know how good it is and how much faster it is. I know it is a high cost and I really did not need it but this is something I wanted and had to try. The speeds looked unreal!

Thanks. I believe it will boost the times for my applications and what I use the PC for.

In the end they're still SSD drives over spinners. Anyway by the time it's time to replace the SSD drives of today OCZ's issues will be a thing of the past.

It will be interesting to get your real life report. I suspect it will not make a big difference for the OS (versus e.g. a Vertex 2) because the access times are the same and data rates do not matter a lot. But for pumping large amounts of data it should really make a difference.

What drive ar we talking about and what is the setup. What makes you think that you should get 6Gb/sec?

PS. It sounds strange that they are buying their nand from intel and intel has not come out with the new nand. Maybe somebody got snookered.

Looks like there is a way to tell the difference..... OCZ Forum - New update on the 25nm OCZ SSD drives - See the first two comments.

Not saying that's the gospel but....

Those are very good speeds for an SSD regardless if you are plugged into a SATA II or III port. There are only a small handful of SATA III SSD's on the market and THEY ARE EXPENSIVE!!
