Wishmaster,
I found this at the Intel SSD Center webpage; hope it's not too late. garuda:

Thanks. Yes, already have it and Win7 sits on it now

I posted my AS SSD bench on the previous page. It feel faster than my Vertex, but the Vertex is a bit faster in Seq reads.

Im thinking the Vertex will be good for Documents and a game or 2. I think games will benefit more from the faster Seq read than the OS, but I could be wrong.

All in all, for a $120 SSD, cant really complain. They are worth it IMO.

I have similar Windows 7 x64 images on a 2xVertex 30GB RAID0, a single Vertex and an Intel x25-Value drive and there is no comparison; the RAID0 array wins hands down by seat of the pants, by reboot times, and by benchmarking.
Tom
Tom, do you have any data so that one can get a feel for the difference. E.g. my single Intel boots in under 15 seconds and I wonder how much faster that could be.

I don't have data I can put my hands on quickly. If you're booting in 15 seconds, to coin a phrase "it don't get much better than that." You've probably reached the point of diminishing returns. Shaving even one second off that would be difficult (and unnecessary, really).
Eventually I would like to take a day and bench all three in succession. Problem is I don't know were to take the day from!!

As for boot/reboot.... the RAID0 is a bit quicker but now that I've added another eSATA card, the BIOS pauses for that so my reboot times are no longer in the 30 second range.

That's a good buy for the Vertex. They're probably making room for the next gen. Sandforce SSDs. I got one at that price when they ran a similar rebate a few weeks ago and I'm running it in a new Atom D510/Vertex 38-watt (@idle) Windows Home Server.

I'm guessing that if the reboot times are no comparison that the images are less similar than assumed. The true performance benefit of the SSD with regards to OS loading is fast access times...and this doesn't increase substantially with the addition of more spindles in a RAID array.

Ok, so the comment about there being "no comparison" between the single drive and the RAID 0 configuration with boot/reboot times might have been a bit of an exaggeration?

Great news! I installed it and in the help dialog under "RAID enabled systems" it says this:

....Our application also provides support for the following features:...

Trim (Microsoft Windows 7* only)
This feature provides support for solid state disks (SSDs) that meet the ATA-8 protocol requirements. This feature optimizes write operations, helps devices reduce wear, and maintains unused storage area on devices as large as possible.
