Windows 7: Intel X25M 80 GB SATA SSD

11 Feb 2010   #31

W7x64 Pro, SuSe 12.1/** W7 x64 Pro, XP MCE

Just thought that I would mention that the bidding ended at $240.50 shipped. That's no bargain for a grabbag. The seller is making out like a bandit.

W7x64 Pro, SuSe 12.1/** W7 x64 Pro, XP MCE

My search for a SSD got derailed by some other considerations, but since I'm back on track, I came back to this thread to refresh my memory of past thoughts on the subject. I have not picked a new target yet, but I am wondering how some of the other brands stack Patriot, Samsung, etc. It seems that everybody and their dog is making SSDs, like it is the gold rush of cyberspace.

If one chose one of these lesser known drives, how likely is it that they would end up with a lemon. On one Patriot drive being offered, the owner could not make it work as his main drive, saying that he thought that it was the fault of his old motherboard. Considering that I'm running 939 on both of my machines, they are not exactly spring chickens either.
