Personally I'd recommend having a read of Tom'sHardware's most recent SSD comparison/VFM discussions at:
http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/ssd-review-benchmark,3139.html

It'll reveal a LOT about how not all SSDs are created equal.

thanks just bought 10, need to stock up in case of strike ;)

Forgive me for being thick, but why are these so expensive compared to normal harddrives? Is it the write speed?

The read speed is exceptionally fast. If you were playing a game for instance, all the loading times would be virtually instantaneous comparatively. For videos and audio, it wouldn't make much difference.

good deal but, for an extra 8 quid, you could get the OCZ 120GB Agility 3..

- 525MB/s Read 500MB/s Write
- 85,000 IOPS

Normal hard drives = mechanical moving parts and made by the millions and are not expensive to make

New SSD (solid state drives) are just memory chips with no moving parts and therefore faster read write speeds

Hope that helps
Fozmeister#11
And because its fairly new - its expensive at the moment.
I bought a 64gb SSD in May 2009 for £150 - now they're only £50 !!
OWENBROWN2007#12
Many thanks guys.

The Petrol range is a little slower than current offerings but also, quite a bit cheaper.

Do i need to panic buy some SSDs? :p
fishingcat#16
Considering that you can get an Agility 3 for £100, this really isn't worth buying.
wolfman#17
Not sure why this is so hot. The Agility 3 or Corsair M4 is better value. This is cheaper, but not as good value.

is it not crucial M4 mate ?

These are just about the worst SSDs on the market, in terms of reliability.

Please check the reviews here:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820227780

55% are 1* reviews.

For the record I have not seen an SSD with such a low rating.

I wouldn't install this SSD in my main PC if it were offerred for free (due to the possible loss of data and time wastage).

I would only install this SSD if I were paid £100 (this would cover me for the time wastage and possible loss of data).
