    Write speed is pretty slow at 60 MB/s(max). But the price is right.

    And make sure it supports Trim or has some kind of cleanup utility.

    Actually you can subtract another $10 from the price because I'm using a promo code LADYBUG10. And yes, I believe it supports TRIM.

    After messing around with an O/S on a 32gb already, no it's not worth it. In this case I think a mechanical HDD would be faster except for the burst rate. Not worth buying in my opinon.

    the uk that's all you need to know ;)
    i've got to agree with erocker on this,
    i don't think it's worth it either, yes i know it's an ssd which make most of us tech heads drool.gif

    if i were you i'd just get a 320 gig samsung sata 2 drive,
    yes they might make a teeny weeny bit of noise (if you have no fans at all:rolleyes:)
    but that's just me ;)

    now if it was a sandisk or a corsair (waits for someone to tell me how poop they are :laugh:)
    i would get one,

    :eek: omg i've just seen the cost of a sandisk 64 gb disk listed below £739.64 faints on floor with a thud.gif

    I got the 1.8" 64GB Super Talent (ebay$160) for my HP Mini netbook. Its still not a lot for what I'm used to, but I'm looking at them for the reliability. I'm rough on mobile devices/notebooks and have had several hard drives fail over the years. I'm looking at the 1,000,000 hour time between fails. Plus no moving parts to worry about.
