Folks like myself with a Gen.1 Vertex, or a Gen.2 Intel should not be too interested in this drive. If you are a synthetic benchmark junkie then maybe. I'll wait to see what the new Sata spec drives will do for real-world performance, and I suggest others do the same.

Good thing is that maybe the prices of OCZ 120GB and Intel 160GB drives will come down as these Sandforce drives get popular.
Exactly what I was thinking, seeing some decent deals on 60GB OCZ's.. and other brands with non-sandforce controllers.
