    Sweet job Wizz! Keep pumping out those SSD reviews, the cumulative performace summary is awesome.

    P.S. why were Vertex 3 and Agility 3 not included in the comparison tables all across the review?

    P.S.P.S. Zalman 128N review next haha ;)

    I had RMA'd mine no less than 3 times each before I sold them off.

    180.8 sec Office 2010 installation, that's very slow, 225$ is too expensive for this performance.

    So according to Crazyeyesreaper, this drive should still be better than the Raptor due to the near 0 access times for the applications he runs. This will help me argue against that point, thanks.

    I wonder how would this SSD do compared to the VelociRaptors?

    How can something cost so much and be so slow!? You might as well buy a Corsair Force GT for like $25 more even a OCZ Vertex 3

    It's really surprising the price hasn't gone down. Well at least now we know what to avoid :)

    This SSD is very simple so it is slow as flash chips have very slow random writes in general.

    Bu slowness is not what concern me with this drive. Reliability is. With no over-provisioning and probably fake TRIM (it certainly don't work as on other drives) its going to fail sooner or later...

    I wonder if it's the controller or the flash chips, though. If these are the same flash chips as what's in the iPad, those are certainly no speed demons.
