Finally! An SSD in the size I need, now lets work on the price. I could do about $400 all in.

Soooo, any 75% off sales anytime soon?

I have had such bad luck with mushkin, the 5 drives i have bought from them each failed, none the less looks like a great drive.

I'd hold off until the next sata interface comes out before getting such a large drive. I want me some 1GB/s+ transfer speeds!

Well I'm probably averaging 100 to 150 megs a sec right now, so if I could go to 400 to 500 now, or relatively soon I'm certainly going to do it, especially since those are just the sequential transfers I'm talking about.

For someone that has dreamed of having an SSD only system that allowed large storage without buying too many drives/breaking the bank, I can say that I am a very happy man.
