My System Specs


...want. Want want want.

Great review. Seems like a great product. The price ratio makes me a little dizzy, though. But TRIM out of the box! I'm doing research on other SSDs and TRIM support or firmware upgrades seem strangely rare. This would be a fun upgrade over my 500 GB HDD once I have money saved.

I do have a question for you though, regarding the numbers from the chart on page 8... a large number of your benchmarks are stuck on an average just between 225-230 MB/s. Is this due to SATA II bandwidth limits? That has been my understanding, anyway. What will we need to see a drive substantially improve over that 230 MB/s cap?
I REALLY want a solid state disk drive. Really awfully badly.
