Nice price, especially if you can take advantage of the Amazon Prime 1 month trial to get free next day delivery.

If I hadn't just bought the OCZ Vertex from Scan then I'd consider this.

Cheers.

That is a good deal

£1.48/GB is good

a 1TB solid state is about £2.26/GB (lol over £2k to buy)

I think I'll buy 17 of these and save £778, now thats hot

great if you have the "cash to splash"

SSD’s in general seem to be dropping in price at a slower rate than expected. This is a good price but many will prefer to hold on for a lower price and greater capacity.
#5
have corsair changed to 25nm too?
#6
I'll get an SSD for my laptop when I can get 250GB for £100. I wonder how long I'll have to wait...

Crosair have different model numbers for the 25nm the F120 equivalent with 25nm is F115.

Against my better judgement I bought a 120gb Vertex at Christmas, so i'm glad to see it still costs more than I paid (£155 after Quidco).

ah right great thanks.
took a look on corsair site and dont seem to have a equivalent model for F60 and i assume F40 isn't it...
does that mean the smaller drives are unchanged for the moment?

Any Corsair 34nm drive "upgraded" to 25nm will have the -A postfix on the model number, except for the F115 which is a new 25nm drive.

Then you don't know how to use a fast drive properly then, you have completely missed the point of SSD's/FAST drives.
Even this small 60Gb drive is just about enough for an OS, Programs and large(ish) Work in progress partition. (You will probably struggle for space on W7 but for XP this is enough to seriously speed up your OS/Programs and productivity)
Once you have finished working on your bandwidth hungry project be it video/audio/photo ..etc you then move it onto a cheap TB storage drive. Now you have your FAST working space back ready to work with. Their is NO point using SSD or any fast drive for that matter for storing files, complete waste of money and bandwidth imho.

Enless you want to be completely portable and don't want to carry around a second storage drive which will also run you laptop battery down really fast.. Other wise yes this can be the case. Personally I think SSD's are great for baseunits as you have all the space and power you need to have multiple drives. Laptops you may want to wait depending on your needs.

"In late March Corsair plans to update the other 34nm based capacities they offer. The F180 and F240 will migrate to 25nm as the F180-A and F240-A. The F40 and F60 will also go to 25nm NAND in March as the F40-A and F60-A; with a design that preserves capacity and boosts performance, but requires a nominal price increase."

excellent thanks again

With respect, I think you've missed the fairly obvious fact that my 13inch laptop isn't going to fit two drives in it. Ultra lightweight, 9 hour battery life, and a massive great (slow) external drive to lug about and drain power? Maybe not.

I understand that for a desktop you could use a SDD for the boot / swap drive, and a regular spinning disk for storage. I just wouldn't spend £90 to save a few seconds on start up.
#21
Many laptops have an unused optical drive that using an adaptor a second drive can be fitted instead.
#22
Is it possible to put these in an external case and make a USB solid state portable drive?

I hope you realise how stupid that would be, but you did ask the question, so obviously you don't.

It's not quite as silly as it sounds, as long as the computer has a USB 3 connector and the external enclosure also has a USB 3 interface (otherwise you're limited to about 30 MBytes/sec with USB 2). In fact, a USB 3 external SSD drive would be a neat portable diagnosis kit (i.e. boot into some rescue system on the SSD drive to fix an internal hard drive in the PC), but it's going to be capacity limited for stuff that USB external drives are typically used for (i.e. portable media storage and backups).

im still confused.

what exactly do people use these for as 60gb is too small a capacity for most people to use as their HD?

As a boot drive for the Windows OS and programs - data would be stored on a second large regular hard drive.

I have this drive in my desktop. It flies!
I can load Outlook 2010 in under 2 seconds.

Hmmmmm...interesting...and do you guys notice a big difference in the start-up times for windows and programs ?

sorry im a newbie so excuse me

I'd rather get a 120GB SSD, lol, but cant afford any atm

see when I start my computer up, once it reaches the desktop stage, it usually takes a wee while. Would SSD help to make this quicker. What I mean is the icons take a while to appear, sometimes 1 by 1 lol

Thanks for your really helpful comment. Really shed light on the issue.

FYI, I wanted it as a backup drive with no moving parts that would be fairly immune to shocks yet fast etc. I don't need to have more than 60Gb for what I am doing, so larger sizes are less relevant. I have a 16Gb pen drive which I know aren't that reliable, but is also too small.

Perhaps if there is a better solution, someone with useful information may wish to comment and advise?
