    Interesting review. But to be honest, the Toshiba drive is the performer around here. Can we have a review of it please of this new drive?

    W1zzard, is Battlefield 2 patching system typical or atypical? If latter, then there may be a typo on page 10.

    typical. or at least that has been the case. for our next rebench we'll probably drop that benchmark since more and more games are updated via steam. maybe i could look into what steam does for their patching

    Impressive piece of hardware especially considering its price perf and price per GB.

    Also thank you for the review.
