And it's not even Ash Wesnesday. But, it's really OK to post when you've been drinking, ask Paul. But, don't ever buy when you've got a buzz on. You can get yourself into a lot of trouble. Thake that advice as the voice of experience. I've had to really scuffle to cover charges before. All I can say s buy from Amazon when you do it. They have the best return policy around.

Nah, their giveaways are clean (so far), it just checks the site to see that it is still active.

After installation, you will get this



But everything is unchecked by default and if you just press the close button, nothing extra is added.

That is not a bad price. But for $10 more, you can get this superb SSD which is twice the size of the Samsung. I own that exact model and I really like it.

The Mushkin is like the Kingston, OCZ A3 and some Intels, painfully slow compared to the Samsungs, OCZ Vertex 4, Corsairs, often the more expernsive ssd's are 2-3 times as fast, and 2-3 times as much money. The slowest ssd is still faster than the fastest spinner.

Speaking of spinners, the Egg has 1TB Seagate for $59.99 shipped with the current promotion codes. The are advertising the 500gb for 49.99 but checking the other sizes yeilded this 1tb at what appears to be a very good price.

I've been looking at the sub $150 ssd's in the 240gb range, the reviews all show they are slow compared to the top of the line, of course they have to reduce parts to reduce price.


ETA: After more research this price is not all that great, $60+ship is average, so the Egg is giving up the shipping cost, bfd.

Believe me, in real life that does not mean anything. As long as the access time is in the 0.1 to 0,3ms range, you won't notice the difference.

It may be a bit slower in the measurements and have less bragging fancy, but for daily use it makes absolutely no difference.

I own 7 SSDs and they all measure differently with Atto, HD Tune and AS SSD. But when I use them, I really don't notice any difference. The OS performance lives on Access time, not data rate.

Those reviews are for the birds if they do not reflect the usage pattern of average users.

It can also depend on which test you are running on which SSD. Some perform better on some than on others. Sandforce controllers will never compete using AS SD, but run them on ATTO and they will be as fast as anything else.
