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.

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

The SanDisk SSD SATA 2.5 is a state-of-the-art solid-state flash disk based on NAND flash technology that provides the functionality of a hard disk with no moving parts. SSD SATA 2.5 is an ideal reliable storage solution for mission-critical applications that must operate under harsh environmental conditions as well as for the telecommunication and blade server industry that must support 99.999% availability.SSD SATA 2.5 delivers outstanding reliability and enhanced endurance thanks to SanDisk TrueFFS technology which applies dynamic wear-leveling and bad block management. Due to its unique design SSD SATA 2.5 provides high-performance sustained read and write rates up to 150Mbytes/sec and supports Serial ATA 1.0a standard.SSD SATA 2.5 is fully compatible with the SATA 1.0a interface and has the same mechanical dimensions and mounting holes of traditional mechanical disks. It is a true drop-in replacement for rotating 2.5 Serial ATA (SATA) and Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) disks with highest reliability and operating mean time between failure (MTBF) hours.

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.
