Intel X25-M 80GB SSD Drives - only $500
 
Well, I wanted 4 of these in a RAID-0 array for the ultimate in quickness. I was hoping for about 900MB/s reads, 300MB/s writes, and negligible seek times. The 3ware controller card that I'm using gives me dismal performance in RAID-0, and ICH10R doesn't scale past 600MB/s no matter how many drives I hook up to it. I can either compromise performance on what was supposed to be a no compromises setup, I can spend more yet again (already pushed past the limit) on a better RAID card, or I can just sell them and wait for later. These drives showed up at my house on Friday, December 12, 2008, so they are like new.

Asking $525>>$500 each for these drives. Take more than one for $500>>$450ea and free shipping

bump for some nice drives! :biggrin:

Decided to keep them. I was balking at the cost of adding a RAID controller, but instead I've decided to simply run them off the onboard ICH10R RAID controller.

psuhhhh only 600 MB/S, you can do better thant that !

Linus December 16, 2008 12:45 PM

Yeah... I know. If I see an opportunity to sell them I probably still will though.

With the read cap on the ICH10R I'd have been better off with cheaper drives instead of these expensive ones and could have gotten the same results :(

omg
you are the guy who makes all the Tech tips movies right??:P

Linus December 21, 2008 06:03 PM

Okay these are back up for grabs. I've decided to just take a hit on them instead of spending the extra money on a RAID card.
