Default G.SKILL Falcon 64GB Indilinx 2.5IN ?

So this is up over at NCIX: NCIX.com - Buy G.SKILL Falcon 64GB Indilinx 2.5IN SATA2 Solid State Disk Flash Drive SSD W/ 64MB Buffer - FM-25S2S-64GBF1 In Canada. and it looks to be quite good. Reviews seem to like it. Anybody have some real world experience with this SSSD? While i am at it, how much hassle is the 'trim" or "wiper" in real world use - easy as a defrag, or is it a PITA ?
Gotta hand it to NCIX, theirs is good and cheap at $239.00. Anybody see a better deal out there?

Get the ocz vertex at $199. They have a garage collection routine that will run in a raid array.
