Yes, awesome drive. I have the faster 256GB version of this and am blown away by how quick it is on an overclocked i7 water cooled high end gaming PC. It also makes for a very silent machine.

The OCZ RevoDrive (120GB) isn't much more than this and is quite a bit faster (a fairly solid 540MB/s). It's PCI-E so that might be a deal-breaker.

These C300s are getting on a bit now (it's middle-aged in tech years) so there should be more SATA3 drives coming along soon to replace it. That and there are more and more PCI-E solutions coming out (and down in price). Just something worth considering... If you hold out a little longer you might get something much faster for a similar price.

Yeah I'm waiting for the pci-e's also, the revodrive 2 is pci-e 8x like 12000 iops or something and no cables :3
#4
yh the pci-e ssd will be good but if your like me and have 3 graphics cards & a huge sound card i dont have room for the pci-e ssd. plus you cant put 2 pci-e ssd's in raid 0.

this is hot, damn it i'm going to buy it, this is a super-fast drive

I’m looking to buy an 80 to 120GB SSD this week but am planning on a Vertex 2E over this as overall the benchmarks look better and it’s cheaper.
Do people get overly excited about this because of the SATA III interface?
#7
more expensive and slower than 2x 60-64gb drives if it's for a desktop system and you have the capacity. plus the next gen of these is right around the corner.
just a thought. good price for what it is mind

the revodrive is raid-0 in itself so no need.

Yup, so they have no TRIM support... so will probably end up eventually being slower than a mechanical hard drive...

idle garbage collection on the sandforce controller so no need :3

Oct '10 - Next Gen just around the corner
Nov '10 - Next Gen just around the corner
Dec '10 - january sales will sell these off as next gen is just around the corner
Jan '11 - Next Gen just around the corner
Feb '11 - Next Gen just around the corner

My point is that you should wait buy any tech as next gen is just around the corner. It's why I haven't bought a car yet as flying cars are just around the corner. But then I'm gonna wait for electric flying cars but only after the infrastructure has been put in place to recharge. And that the recharging is from sustainable fuels. And the batteries will have a range of over 100 miles - wait, 1000 miles. Voted cold. ;-)

ordered this btw. Sometimes I know this site doesn't get sarcasm and you vote cold when it's a product you don't want or have interest in. But thought I should make it clear my post was flippant.

8 left btw.

A pair of these new drives will be launched next month (March 2011), and the page above on Intel’s Website confirms that the new 510 series is designed for the “enthusiast consumer client PC.”

Read speeds on the new drives will leap to 450MB/s (from the X25-M’s 250MB/s) and write speeds will accelerate to 300MB/s (compared to the X25-M’s 100MB/s).

As is usually the case with SSDs, costs for the 510 series will not be cheap on a per-gigabyte basis. A 120GB drive will cost £189-99, while a 250GB version will set you back £399-99.

You can get these direct from Crucial with 10% off at the moment. Makes them £167.39 inc. VAT.
