Good stuff. We need more SSDs based on the excellent Indilinx controllers.

Hopefully manufacturers will figure it out and stop making SSDs with those garbage JMicron controllers...

I wonder if that's the same controller the OCZ Vertex series are using too, they were released what around a month ago, and have similar speed specs, similar 64mb cache. Good to see SSD's improving at a good rate, prices keep going down, soon enough I might be able to justify one (or two for raid 0 :D ).

The G.Skill Falcon is the same drive as the OCZ Vertex and SuperTalent MasterDrive ME SSDs. They all use the same Indilinx Barefoot controller...
