    That looks like a killer SSD. Meanwhile, I've been liking the pricing of Mushkin's current SSDs and I'm getting close to buying one now that the competition is slowing down a bit.

    Hopefully Mushkin has resolved their SSD issues. I wanted to buy one of their SATA III SSDs but they've had a lot of issues so I went with Plextor's. The PCIe SSDs will be taking over the market within the next two years as they are far superior to SATA ports.

    It might be superior in terms of raw performance capability, but the convenience factor of SATA ports will be enough to keep people on that medium vs. using a PCIe SSD. SSDs are already fast enough to the point where people are jumping from traditional HDD and are like "OMG".

    More free space on the MB = a win for modders/upgraders. Not to mention the increased support SATA already gets versus current PCIe based SSD solutions.

    That USB drive, 240GB! Damn, I want one!

    "Is that a roll of Quarters? Or, are you just happy to see me?" 'No, Babe. That's my Linux Distro on this awesome USB dri...!'

    "Bye" :roll:

    Can it use TRIM and OS booting over PCIe ?
