Serious Question below as this is new technology for me:

What makes this better than the normal 2.5" SSD that's always on here? I know it's a different size, but can't you get the 128gb for around this price at 2.5" with a converter bracket.

The size makes no difference. The vertex 2 SSD's are really fast. 285MB/s READ up to 275MB/s WRITE, 50K IOP.
A 128GB around this pricepoint is probably not as fast.
For example, the 128GB Kingston SSD has a read speed of 100MB/s and a Write of 80MB/s .

Am i the only one in thinking that 90GB is a really weird storage capacity number for a Hard Drive

Oh I wish I had the money for one of these

Prices are getting a bit better, I paid a bit more than this for my 60GB OCZ one for my OS and that was for a sata2 one. Ill consider these for storage when the £/GB drops a little bit more.

The strange numbers on SSD's are because of the built in redundancy. A 30GB ssd will probably have 32GB of storage, but 2Gb will be used to replace any cells as they go bad.
This greatly increases the lifespan and reliability of SSD's.

It's a sign that men and women have different priorities :D
