I am new to SSD. Quick question how do you plug this to your motherboard?

Do you need a special port for this ? i.e. IDE, SATA

There is a Samsung SSd on the way ( no eta yet , i admit )

MMCRE64G5MXP-OVB - 64GB Samsung, SSD, PB22-J MLC-Flash, 2.5", 1 x SATA 3Gb/s, Read 220MB/s, Write 200MB/s

Has double the cache and much better write speeds - Expected price is £126.22 ( Today only price would be worth another 6% reduction) and it is a SAMSUNG too

Worth the wait ?

Those write speeds are a typo, I'm pretty sure that model's 120MB/s write, the higher capacity ones are supposed to be quicker though. So no it's not worth the wait, as it's actually slower across the board for this capacity.

EDIT: Also I think the Samsung warranty is only 2yrs compared to the 3yrs offered by OCZ. And if you look around they're already on sale for more elsewhere e.g. http://www.novatech.co.uk/novatech/specpage.html?sam-ssd64, http://www.**************/product-info.asp?product_id=33319, http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=HD-079-SA.

ive got one of these, very nice, not the best on the market, but then again not the most expensive either.

fast enough, use it in my main system as my boot / system drive , photoshop used to take 18 seconds to load on my old hard drive, it now takes a conservative 4 :D

Not bad not bad. I'm saving up for an Intel x25-m tho :)
#9
Yes, the 80GB Intel X25 is a much more superior choice

Really? Despite the much slower write speed?
#11
The Intel x25 is only £10 more than this on Scan atm, if it's the one to have ..

Yeah, I saw that Scan deal, wondered why it is considerably cheaper than everywhere else.

If this price is correct, surely it's better than the OCZ deal on offer here
#13
That's a first generation intel drive...

Although the sequential write speed (i.e. time it takes to write a large file to a disk) of the Vertex is higher, the random write speed of the x25-m is far superior. Random writes is what your drive will be doing 90% of the time -- updating file system entries, writing out a page to disk, saving a snap shot of a file, caching an image from your browser etc etc etc

eBuyer has the 160Gb Intel x25-m Gen II at £346 making it £2.16/Gb. This deal is £2.68/Gb.

Obviously not everyone wants to spend £346 on a drive though but Intel is the better deal in terms of £/Gb and performance too.
