Oh you know it is. I'm just waiting for them to come out with a reasonably priced SATA 3 (6 GB/sec) SSD with the performance it should have for the system drive.
Reasonably priced???? That term doesn't seem to fit into the build that you just put together.
LOL. True, but at the price they want for the SSD below that gets the best SATA 6Gb/sec speeds around, it's just to high for price vs performance. The cheaper 128GB version of this SSD doesn't get the same speed at all.

John's right, that 5.9 has got to be bugg'in you

Might be a while until more SATA 6 GB/s come out, let alone the price drops. Do you have a empty bay in another computer that is begging for a SSD?
I just got a Intel X25 v 40 GB, installed it last night, gave me a 7.6 for primary HD.
When the prices settle on a bigger SSD, hopefully SATA 6 GB/s, this little guy is going in the second HD bay of my laptop.

Just thought I'd give you a excuse suggestion/justification to jump in
LOL, that's ok, but thank you very much. I'll just patiently (yeah right) wait until they come out.

You'll be glad that you waited (if you can wait ) when the 6 Gb/s SSD field develops and matures a bit, there should be some blazing speed monsters by the end of the year

There's always the 24 SSD RAID option

In the end, the bottleneck will be the controller... The closest thing to a fast storage right now is Infiniband used as communication bus, or LightPeak if it ever lift off... Or, maybe a SAS HBA...?

My concerns would be whether running the OS from something faster would really provide that many more benefits than what we currently have? Most of the OS performance is with random read and writes. And the biggest benefit to using the SSD is the extremely low access times...which aren't going to significantly improve with the next gen SSD drives.

Of course, for flat out storage the benefits of very high read and write speeds would matter...but then again....how much are people willing to pay for storage space???
