There could be some irony here, Muskin products are quite hard to get hold of in Europe :roll:

Not really since we have an office in Germany and a distributor for Europe. I don't see why it would be hard to get Mushkin products in Europe.

You can get them in the UK now but only from very few retailers. Used to be impossible.

That site doesn't seem to want to load. Can you buy from it and ship to UK?

What problems.

"no stuttering in games for loading, no vibration in your case and no annoying clicking for reading and writing." Mushkin must be from the stoneage, I don't have the problems their talking about. What I would say is their power supplys are one of the best. I've been running whats in my sig for close to two years, when so many sites were saying at the time I would need 700w or higher to be safe. Muskin proved them wrong, as long as they keep putting out quality products they have my business. I also don't like customer returns, muskin is one company that saves me from headaches.

Available in Romania since a few weeks ago. Very nice presentation, the aluminum "jewel type box". Competitive pricing http://www.pcfactory.ro/componente/ssd-solid-state-drive/ Already reviewed at http://lab501.ro/memorii-stocare/mushkin-ssd-128gb-review
Looking at the graphs, the read and write for commercial sale, it doesn't quite grab me yet. Electrical current travels fast, I wish some geeky person could fill me in with layman talk whats holding this technology up. If memory chips can transfer gigabytes of information per second as in video or cpu usage, wheres the hold up.

I didn't realize it was that simple, thanks for your effort. Anyone else asks me that same question I'll have no problem explaining it to him in detail. If he needs more info I'll have him look you up.

Also I think you're thinking of RAM chips when you talk about video / CPU usage, SSDs use flash memory (much slower). RAM requires power to retain the data stored in it, so if SSDs used RAM they would have to have an onboard battery to work (think Gigabyte i-RAM)

ROM is slower than RAM but the bottleneck remains the controllers on SSD drives. After that its going to be the SATA interface itself at about 300MB/sec theoretical, however you will need a half decent CPU to be able to saturate that. I'm not entirely sure what the raw speed of the best ROM is right now tbh. I'd look at the Intel SSD's they have about the best controller of anybody as its designed in house.

Although I wouldn't buy any atm unless you want to put it in a laptop and are cool with only a small sized drive as they are still not cheap! I'm just looking at some new ones from Mushkin.

Thankyou. You just gave my memory a wake up call.

In the UK its quite hard. OCUK and ebuyer don't stock mushkin unfortunately. I tried to get the radioactive ram and I couldn't find it. I wanted the metal case so badly lol.
