Interesting. How this would compare against the Solid 2 is what I'm wondering. Hopefully this will actually be a good-"budget" ssd.

What's the controller on this thing ? jMicron ? Indilinx ? Samsung ?

I love value, I too am interested in what controller it uses. I'm more excited about the review though!:biggrin:

It uses a Indinlix "Amigos" controller. So it has ITGC and TRIM.
IIRC (and I may be way off base) its Indi's low end controller. Meant to compete in the "value orientated" range. Saw a product description the other day that said it supported "up to" 64GB of MLC NAND. ;)

buy a solid 2 is what i would do 125mb read is real slow for an ssd. jmo it really depends on what the starting price is if it's 100$ then for get the solid 2 is only 20 bucks more. jmo

$99 for 32gb is $3/gb for an inferior controller. The spin doctors working overtime.

Seems a bit strange when folks are picking up 30GB Vertex's for similar prices, albeit with rebates. I suppose OCZ does have to have this pricepoint covered in the face of increasing competition, though.

unless they make the vertex 30GB EOL, this is fail in my mind.

I'm waiting for the 1TB models @ $99 *ouch!* HEY! Quit throwing stuff at me ...
