Hot price however for anyone looking to purchase I would recommend a quick look at this article before making a decision: http://macperformanceguide.com/SSD-RealWorld-BeforeAfter-CrucialM225.html which mentions

"After seasoning, the M225 degrades severely for writes, right down to the speed of USB 2 (about 30MB/sec)!"

The Sandforce drives always run better after time.

Still think I'll wait for the point when they hit 1TB for under £100... I recently had a crucial 120gb and found my Samsung 1tb F3 seemed just as fast for Win 7 OS... 1.5tb Samsung F4 are about £60, 4p per gig... This is about £1.20 per gig... Really worth that much more? Maybe for the xtreme gamer but for the majority I think Standard drives are just fine.....

However as this should be based comparing SSD drive prices only I haven't voted, just given my 2 cents

That's with the older firmware, 1916 fixed this issue with better GC. I've had one in one of my MBP's for a while now with no degradation !

hard disks will soon be only found in museums - give it another year

no the main advantage is not speed - for me its more to do with reliability...no moving parts, so only heat will the main thing worry about as im sure theyll find a fix to the degarding write problem which does seem odd

i'm thinking of buying this 128GB RealSSD C300 2.5" with Data Transfer Kit, it's suposed to be faster, anybody using one of these can you tell me if they have got any issues?

But you could buy 7 x 500gb 2.5" drives to back up your data, no moving parts is an advantage but until the price comes down these can't be considered cost effective for backing up data. You'd be better getting a couple of 1TB drives in raid or something?
