Anyone owns this drive? The price looks nice (sub 200 eur for 128GB is really cheap), but it's based on JMicron 600 series controller with 64KB buffer. From few tests, they say it doesn't have any stuttering issues. But it also seems to lack TRIM functionality.
I'm planning to use it with WinXP anyway on my netbook, but would like to know how they fare in a long run.
