The SSDNow cant compete in many ways against the big boys, BUT for the price of two of them you would end up with a killer raid "boot drive" on the "cheap".
oh hell i completely agree but it's got the right price ( 100$) tag so i can pretty much bet that it will sell everyone and there mother has been waiting for them to get to this price and they can't be slower the teh warp v2 series which make hd seem slow so i see a bright future for this drive. I would not buy 1 because i already have 1 warp left. and going raid just spend a little bit more ( like 20$ ) and you can get much better performance ( indilinx ) my a-data's get 150mb/s write know that's impressive hell they average 140
