The purpose is to:

A) Gauge the satisfaction (or lack thereof) of current or past users of an SSD.
B) Gauge the interest level among those who do not have one

Vote, then add any additional thoughts in a post below.

If you own one and like it, tell us the reason(s).
If you own(ed) one and hate it, was it defective? Just not what you expected?
If you don't own one but want one, why haven't you bought one yet? (Price too high, waiting for higher capacity drives, etc.)
If you just plain don't want one, what are your reasons?

I bought an Intel X25-M2 80GB about 2 years ago. I bought it at the time to see what the hype was all about. Although it was $289, I haven't regretted the purchase whatsoever. While some will maintain they don't need faster boots and apps start almost instantly already...there are so many immeasurables like running updates, shutdowns, not having to defrag, quick virus scans and malware scans, etc.

I now have one in my laptop at work. We have 3 year old laptops and considered getting new hardware. Instead, we replaced the 7,200 RPM mechanical drive with an SSD and it's like everyone got a new laptop. Everybody is quite pleased with performance.

And now that mechanical drives aren't so cheap, and SSD prices have dropped, it's not as shocking anymore to buy the SSD.

If you want the 1 upgrade that will provide a solid bang for the buck, the SSD is it.

With all that said, I still have desktops at work that I use daily, and at home, that don't have SSD's and it's not a showstopper. It's only my really high performance boxes where I would feel it necessary to have an SSD.

started with one 64gb and was an instant convert. Now have 3 two 128's and I used the original 64gb for my girlfriends banging system which she doesn't even know she loves???? the second 128 in the lappy is flat out amazing and it added at least 2 hours to the battery run time.

Oddly enough, I didn't see any improvement whatsoever in my battery life on our laptops when we converted them to the Intel 320 Series SSD's. I was expecting a change there.

On a side note, I love the SSD as it's dead silent with 0 case vibration too.

Oh and don't forget the lower heat generated as well. Still get heat off the CPU but that's it zero off the drive. But if I were to put a percentage to the extended battery life I would say 20-30% minimum. But my lappy is also only months old and it's battery is fresh.
