There is also a review of it over at StorageReview.
The real-world benchmarks look great.
Give me the performance of the first-gen Intel SSD, but at a somewhat reasonable 500 gig for 300$ ... it would still be insanely high, but I'd seriously consider it.
I follow your sentiment, but I have to disagree in the same way that if you were talking about a previous generation CPU/RAM setup, e.g. a P4 3GHz + 512MB RAM. I am sure that you would prefer a much faster system and would be happy to pay for it.
As the proud owner of a second generation "Indilinx Barefoot" SSD, I cant possibly reccomend it more, loet alone a faster 3rd gen drive.
Yes I would really like to have a larger capacity model, however the 64GB drive that I have is perfectly fine so long as you have a second HDD to install programs on that simply dont need more performance, or to stick your data onto that really does not need a fast drive. 64GB is just fine, 120GB would be fantastic, and I simply dont know what I would do with a drive that is bigger than that.
I would also love to be able to have a choice of being able to buy a fast (second generation) SSD at a much reduced cost compared to the almost out "third generation" drives that are insanely fast, however the manufacturers control the market, and they are doing a good job of forcing buyers to spend xxx per GB regardless of the generation of the drives available - this of course simply means that the cost difference between generations of SSD's means that its not worth saving a few quid on the slower model.
I am hoping to buy a "third generation" drive that is a larger capacity than my existing one and have that in my main PC, and then put my old SSD into an AMD Brazos sub-notebook.
