    Another yawner. SSD needs PCIe not sata.

    until motherboards start supporting this and giving more slots for the purpose of SSD (and better placed i might add) SATA is the way to go. its easier, you get to move the SSD around and only need to hook up a cable. sata3 is just fine for modern SSD's

    Eh?

    Time to install PCIe SSD: 15 seconds.

    Time to install SATA SSD: ~10 minutes. (Gotta make the cables neat and blend in with existing installation).

    SATA bottleneck is annoying, the rest is irrelevant. I don't give two nickels about cables and stuff. I don't plug in/remove drives every two seconds.

    I guess it depends on what you mean by affordable. I wonder if SSDs will ever come down to .40-.50 cents per gig.

    Of course they will,probably way cheaper as well until they become obsolete by ram disks.

    I think you might be having the Kingston 1TB USB Flash Drive (from a previous article not too long ago) in mind, but 1TB SSDs have been around for a while except that they are generally too expensive to buy and as they don't sell so often you may not see them on a lot of PC specialist websites.

    Once this costs around $100 I'll upgrade to an SSD.

    Till then I'll just dwell in the past.
