You should probably do a bit of research on the controller this thing uses, this drive has more I/Os than most, other than the intel x-treem. In fact in my opinion for a user looking for the most responsive pc experience this is what I chose to run myself,I just got the 128gb versions however.

Especially because writting is almost always sequential and fast HDD's with lots of cache can perform better than such SSD's. Fully random write pretty much only happens in benchmark tools.

The price and read speeds are great. The write sucks though. But I guess it's not that important, because its main purpose is to be a boot-drive. A serious competitor to the SF-1200 SSDs.

Anyone has an idea how two of these would perform on RAID 0 on SATA 6Gb/s? eg. using 2x 64GB RAID 0. btarunr any ideas?

Upon some research you will find the I/Os on this drive are top notch and not only does it full the SATA II bandwidth its the only single drive out there that can read at speeds that require SATA III. Boot Drive only? Done right these drives are fine for apps as well, the only think I can see you not wanting to put on this hotrod are media files. As mentioned earlier the write doesnt really count only in benchmarks, when you install a program go check the right performance on your spin drive and see what you get, if tis over 25 mbs, ill be wow'd :)

SSD's are known for being near linear in their raid performance unlike spin drives, so if you put two togehter expect about 1.8x the performance of a single drive in this case 600mb/s reads should be no problem.

However you must consider that most SSD drives are not TRIM or garbage collection capable in raid mode with windows 7 inherently, in which is the bane of most SSD performance, that you should consider as well. as over the course of 2 years they might become dreadfully slow.

Yeah it is the IOPS on this thing. I love my WD Caviar Green 1.0TB, and it writes a program (install) fine and even plays videos fine. However, its the mini writes all day eberaday and twice on sunday that just kicks its ass. For my awesome system, it slows down (also the spin speed and cache as well hurts it). This is fine for boot and program. Loving the price too. Reads are freaking crazy.

Does anyone know if using Windows 7 software RAID would keep the TRIM support? And of course, if the performance would be any good. :)

Maybe someone can try it?

FUCK !@#$#@#$

My vertex 2 has the same IOPS as this... only my write IOPS are 3x more :p Not like imana use writing that much though :(

I know intel has TRIM RAID support... idk about the rest
