I have ordered the 160gb version, which is a little more expensive per GB, but read and write performance for the 2 drives is the same. If anyone is interested in the second drive, it is linked below.
This may be part of the reason why the price of other drives has been dropping recently, and the reviews of this drive are good all round for the price bracket.
