    I like it.... but I agree with the review - very expensive.

    I was just looking at this also, read the review. Like to see some reviews from people using them. I just missed a sale on the OCZ Solid 2 Series OCZSSD2-2SLD120G for $269.

    Newegg was selling for that price, $100 off with a $30 rebate = $269. It was at that price for a few weeks then disappeared, and is now selling for $315 after $15 rebate, also available in 30Gb and 60Gb. Also free shipping. Just about all of OCZ's has rebates.
    Just about all the SSD's need a firmware update which I don't like. My favorite at this time is the Corsair P128 CMFSSD-128GBG2, at $375 but at this time I'm still unsure.

    Pretty nice for a system drive with great speeds, but too small for storage, too expensive and what about the life span?... No one knows. I'd consider SSD in few years when the technology improves.

    Just ordered the Intel 160 Gb ssd through Bestbuy online to replace a raid 0 array which dosen't seem to improve performance, the numbers look good, read 250 Mb, Write around 220, but it gets a performance score of 5.9 (same as without raid). Intel has generation 3 comming out in the middle of the year.
