I noticed a marginal difference of maybe 7 secs on bootup that's about it and a few seconds on application loading, to me it was a waste of my money.

I thought Greens were only for storage with it's parking system etc? At least that's what I use mine for.... Every once in a while I see a package from Tiger Direct or somewhere else advertising a bare bones system kit with a WD 1TB Green hdd...

I meant better as in better ITGC for nonTRIM environments...BUT if money is no object a 200GB Revo x2 would be on my short list. From all accounts that PCI-E based SSD is a BEAST and with 4 SF controllers to spread the load out over I doubt that it would ever get slow enough to notice....Trim or no Trim ;)

Then the Vertex 2 is an EXCELLENT choice. :)

If you don't want to spend that much, then don't say money isn't an issue. How much are you willing to spend, and what system is it going into? Both of these questions need to be answered for a proper recommendation to be made.

I'd highly recommend the Intel drives over any OCZ product.

Going by his sys specs profiles Id say a Evga X58 sys is what its going to be used on. ;)

SSDs give you a nice increase in overall "comfort" IMHO.

Decreased boot times is a blessing. The overall "responsiveness" of the computer is increased...
and you don't seem to get much of the "my system needs a OS re-install every 6 months" like with HDDs.

My 2 cents...I got a Vertex 120Gb for boot and a WD 640GB Black for storage...one of the most significant upgrade I made...
