    I hate it when they claim it to be cheaper but not mention the price... If you want to say it is cheaper, give us a freaking price
    AsRock says thanks.

    Controller is JMicron something. Sequential read is at an almost laughable 300MB/s. Prices are available through Kingston's site with a little poking around.

    Yeah, just noticed that at there site too. BUT that's on a SATA2 port according the the tiny text at the bottom.

    Well i am sure pricing be easier to find once there on the shelf they are just a little ahead of the retailers is all.

    I know i would not get one before reading a lot about as it don't seem that good to me.

    Where are you seeing 3Gb/s results? All I see is "2 Based on "out-of-box performance" with ATTO Disk Benchmark 2.41. Speed may vary due to host hardware, software, and usage."

    Are you looking at the right one? http://www.kingston.com/ssd/v200.asp

    For the budget segment, top speed is not important. It's access times that make the experience of an SSD what it is anyway.

    I did say almost laughable. I could have said OMGWTFARETHEYTHINKINGBBQ.

    At the current prices though, they are laughable compared to the Vertex Plus or even the Vertex 2, Agility 3, Force 3, and on and on.
