    this is actually a really good ssd.

    its basically a better built ocz vertex.

    i flashed the new firmware onto the drive and then cloned my OS over to it from my mechanical HDD and ran these tests for you...

    Specs from ST state...

    Sequential Access - Read Up to 230MB/sec
    Sequential Access - Write Up to 180MB/sec

    its damn close.

    Awesome! I'll be picking up this drive for an O/S drive when I find it on sale then. The 32gb Patriot is great but it's too annoying having to keep things under 32gb on it.

    +1

    and i got the 64gb so i didnt have to EFF with raid all the time. its nice but not always easy for OCing. BSOD's sometimes corrupt files and there goes your OS. much less of that with a single drive.

    Man, I wish you could've done a write test before you threw the OS on it.

    I get that, but I want to know how well it writes. With SSD, the write speeds aren't nearly the same as read speeds.

    I don't know how you guys use such small drives. I've just reformatted with Windows 7, and after installing all my software, not even a single game, I'm using 65GB...

    what programs are you using? I'm only using 12.5GB of my 60GB. I disabled hibernation, pagefile, and system restore. I back up every other day so no need.

    ... So SSD's are the official successor to the standard Hard drives?
    I think I will wait until they are in the 150gb range, and are affordable.

    Very nice Fit.

    I was just playing with a Corsair X64 last night (installed in boss's laptop). SOOO fast and responsive. Can't wait to dive in myself.

    Why lose functionality? I like hibernation, you need a page file(speeding up the page file is one of the benefits of an SSD), and I do disable system restore(that shit never works:laugh:).

    I install a lot of programs...

    I hear ya... when I was determining how to split my RAID-0/RAID-5, I found that 300GB+ was just enough room to not feel confined :)
