Default Intel 910 Series 800GB PCI-E SSD Review Comment Thread

Intel's new 910 Series enterprise-class SSDs are meant to dominate an emerging market before their competition can even get off the ground. Boasting transfer speeds of up to 2GB/s, a PCI-E interface for ultra quick communication, class leading longevity and multiple performance modes, this is very much the storage market's technological bleeding edge.

In case anyone is wondering this monster is worth every penny of its price tag. I am currently using it as a "game drive" and load times...simply no longer exist in any meaningful way. It really does bring new meaning to the term "overkill". Though expect it to show up in the testbed at some point in the future as it is now simply the fastest "single" storage device I have access to.

Simply an incredible device!
