    Anyone know what controller it uses and what the performance of it is?

    Newegg has the 256GB model priced at $1/GB, so I'm really interested.

    Do you have anything that shows random reads and writes?

    If I remember right, that is usually more important when it comes to a SSD and the real differences between them on a desktop. I know it will be limited by the interface, but for the price, if it performs, really isn't that bad for a laptop SSD or such I would think.

    edit: Well the closest priced SSD is the Samsung 830 for another ~$50. Is the performance going to be that much different?
