But really what is wrong with this 'used' setup? We don't need no effing TRIM.
True enough

IIRC I reas somewhere thatits actually a hardware issue with the southbridge itself. It'll need a revision (ICH11?) to make trim possible for raids.

I've heard rumors of a firmware update or driver in the works that will allow trim on raid in the ich10 controller.

Lowfat, run those benchies again in a few months and see if you get the same scores. Trim is supposed to stop the degrading of performance over time.

If I'm not mistaken (which I often am) "over time" just means as the disk gets full. They don't suffer from wear as there are no moving parts.

There is a good explanation of how it works in that huge Anandtech article about SSDs

yea, the disk gets full of uncleaned deleted stuff and performance falls off as it has to move stuff around.

All that said, look at this freaking deal, must resist:
NCIX.com - Buy Intel X-25M 80GB 2.5IN SATA Solid State Hard Drive SSD - SSDSA2MH080G1C1 In Canada.

may as well man. The ich10 is good to 650mbs transfer.

The gen2 80gb is going to price at $225 US though, I'll wait.

Well if they ever add TRIM to the ICH10R I may upgrade but otherwise meh.

And when I said 'used' I meant that they have been used for a few months. Degradation is highly overrated.

I don't think it is a good deal at all IMO. The G2's sell for that price. G1's should be $200-$225 in my honest opinion.
