Has anyone tested these...

Prices may be getting affordable on SSD's...

Thinking a few in raid might work nicely.

A single SSD without a RAID array works quite nicely.

It appears that these have been out for a few months even though they ran a Press Release today!

If I want an SSD I'll go all out for a 1TB model, if its stable, no matter if it costs a couple of thousand.

Don't really see the point. The beauty of the SSD is incredible read speeds and instantaneous access. However, SSD's aren't that incredible when it comes to sustained write speeds. Therefore, for pure storage, mechanical drives seem to be far better suited at the present time since a majority of the time will be spent writing sequential data to the drive.

Then I'll wait. I can't see the point of one drive for some apps, and fat storage for the other.

I also had a hard time going with a 2 drive setup. You will find earlier posts from me and I was very unsure of moving to an SSD and wasn't sure the bang for the buck was there.

However, after purchasing one on a whim (more or less to really see what all the hype was about), I've now changed my mind. It's the best bang for the buck upgrade that most people can make.

Yeah, that's why I had to get one. Got tired of poo-pooing the technology when I didn't really have any real world's hands-on experience with one. Considering how much I had spent on computers in the past, $275 for my Intel X25-M G2 80GB didn't see all that expensive.

After I got mine, 2 other guys at work immediately invested in them as well. None of us are regretting our purchase.

Cool, I think I'll order the same drive you're running and take it for a spin... Thanx
