They are all gone at that price. Back to the waiting game. I better stick to my original plan and wait for one that supports the trim function.

Long story short, the trim function will make writes faster and eliminate performance degrading over time. Win 7 will support it and existing drives may with a firmware update as well.

You'll be waiting a long time for TRIM. The OS needs to support it first. And you really think MS is going to patch their OS to allow it? I have my doubts.

Is the rumours that W7 will support TRIM actually proved?

EDIT: guess so
