Anyone who can find a faster 64GB SSD or larger for similar money please post instead of voting cold, thanks...
#2
Actually a very good price for an SSD - not sure what the performance is like but still think it's worth voting hot.
#3
Yeh tempted to buy it for my new laptop.... But nobody offering a better alternative for a similar price....
#4
I would look for benchmarks of this drive before forking up. A slow SSD for £110 would be terrible value whereas a fast one for £180 (such as the Intel X25-M) would be excellent value.

Huh?!? How did you come to that been excellent value?!?

It's like saying buying a normal Ford Focus is a poor value while buying a Ford Focus RS is excellent value. Each serves its own purpose. You get for what you pay, and certainly not a bad price for a known brand SSD.

I've recently bought a 30gb Kingspec (unknown brand) on eBay for £62 for my HTPC, cheapest by far I have found. Certainly does the job for me - quiet and faster than my previous hard drive, so it was good value for me. So this for £110 and it does the job for you, then I think this is worth it. As the OP said, if you can find a similar SSD and post it, then shouldn't make this cold.

Kingspec is unknown to many in Eu as well as US..but they're pretty good IMO..
This one looks good..

40gb Intel X25-V here for £89.29 plus P&P

So £96.33 for the 40GB intel one.... any idea on the speed of it? Says revision 2 and my results are coming out with the originals...
#9
Would you be able to put one of these in a ps3 or not?
#10
Was checking part code on intergral website and it lists INSSD64GS25MX[SIZE="3"]Z[/SIZE]. Amazon website lists INSSD64GS25MX[SIZE="3"]A[/SIZE].

Is that a typo, or is this a special Amazon unit?
#11
True, could be a mistake as the picture is the Z range, there is no A range only P or Z on Integral website.

What!!???????? You would buy a normal Ford Focus for performance? Doh!
Why do people buy SSDs (hint - it isn't for fuel economy)?
#13
His point is that for a 70% greater price, how much extra performance would you really get?

What!!???????? You would buy a normal Ford Focus for performance? Doh!

I would when compared to our old car.

If buying for "performance" means always choosing the fastest option then where do you stop?

...Or is there no such thing as performance on a budget?

You wouldn't pay 28 times as much for a "performance" car as for a normal car if the "performance" car only went 10% faster. However you might pay 38 times as much if the performance car went 100% faster (i.e. twice as fast).*

And of course you have to stop somewhere, but the price/performance curve is not a straight line. It is quite a strange graph. You can stop at the low end and get lots of GB for each £, or you can stop at the higher end and get good performance. My overall point, the one which some of you seem to utterly fail to grasp, is that if you stop in the middle, you often get a low capacity, slow and expensive drive. This is the worst of both worlds and is quite foolish (notwithstanding other considerations such as power consumption, vibration resistance, noise, etc, although for media PCs you can get very nice, quiet magnetic hard drives).


*(I based the "28/38 times as much" figures on the price per GB for this drive, an Intel X25-M 80GB and a 1TB Samsung F3. The performance figures are just an example as I don't have benchmarks for this particular drive.)
#15
Nice analogy and fair enough.

>> "I don't have benchmarks for this particular drive"

Well that's why this is up for discussion and seeing as your analogy is based on the possibility of this drive being only "10% faster" than a traditional hdd, quite an important omission (though I do get your point).

...But then, even if you or I did have figures, you could show me statistics that prove the x25-m is x amount faster than the integral and then I could show you statistics that show, in real world performance, how the x-25 only benefits you with x% further increase in productivity compared to the integral's advantage over mechanical HDDs.

The thing is, while many alternative SSDs slouch in comparison to intel's benchmarks, many of the recent drives do share the same excellent random access speed. Which in most real world usage (for me anyway) is the real tempter in wanting an ssd.

I'd like to know more about this integral drive. It may well completely stink and that'd be an end to this discussion. But the price is not to be sniffed at.
#16
To be fair, I said right from the start that you have to get benchmarks.

There are plenty of real world tests on the X25-M if you care to google (boot times, application load times, etc). And I agree that random access speed is critical but I am not aware of many drives that compete with the X25-M in this area (random read maybe but certainly not for random write access).

Personally I am waiting for an X25-M or equivalent to drop to about £100.
#17
Yes sorry, I was stupidly referring to random read as random access.

I have been recently looking at some of these drives and have seen that many drives (samsung, indillix etc) compare well, in use, to the x25 and certainly all feel indistinguishably snappy due to the random access (or rather read) speed. I think we're both on the same page here, you agree that random access is critical and I don't think it's bad advice to say not to get too absorbed in stuff like sequential ssd benchmarks. Especially when, considering the price per GB, it's not currently realistic that a ssd will be used for very many purposes where these tests actually mean anything very useful.

I'm also kinda waiting for something decent at around the £100 mark, but I'm often frustrated by drive reviewer's focus on unusual synthetic tests, when just using one for a day often gives a very different opinion.

[edit]
I'm in not much position to get into a deep debate about these drives. I'm no expert and am simply learning about them myself atm. But it's only recently I've seen first hand that many drives I thought to be far 'inferior' to intel's, still give an excellent, very noticeable speed boost to your computer. For example, if it wasn't for benchmarks telling me so, I'd never be able to tell the difference between intels first gen and second gen drives, from usage alone. Apparently, some competitor drives are now based on (or simply rebranded) intel generation 1 ssd technology, so if I could find something like that at around half the price of intel's current gen2 x25-m, I'd be very happy with that and I'd consider it good value.

Damn, just got outbid in the last 5th to last second on these:

http://*********.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=260588120844&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT#ht_664wt_1167

Ah, I can't link to ebay (??) ...Anyway, they were a badly described pair of 80GB gen1 x18s. I bid £162 and was winning them at £112 until some ****** got em for £167 with 5 seconds to go. :roll:

Maybe I should have bid more ...Or at least waited till the last second to put my bid in too. Would have done me nicely. Ah well... They'll be massively cheaper in 6 months anyway.

[edit]...and I can't even say ******? lol! ...Harsh... This site makes me look like I'm a foul mouthed *******! :oops:
#19
Going by the picture, Play are now selling the 128GB version of this drive for £180

If it is an Integral Z series (as per picture), I don't think it supports TRIM as that's the P series only.

This one is £10 cheaper and has significantly faster read and write speeds. :thumbsup:

Actually, for some reason that seller has relisted them: 260611082722
Bear in mind you'll probably need 2x micro sata to sata convertors:

and so might not be suitable for laptop use.

I'd make sure [COLOR="Red"]ANY[/COLOR] SSD you buy supports TRIM.
