Always been on here having a look around but hopefully found something worth posting:

OCZ Core Series Solid State Drives enable enhanced productivity in everyday computing and intensive multi-tasking applications. Perfect for the latest generation of performance notebooks, the Core Series is ideal for energy-efficient mobile computing to extend battery life, decreased access time, and provide a durable alternative to conventional hard disc drives with superior shock resistance. High capacities and low power consuming NAND flash technology provide the necessary performance and battery life boosts generated by the proliferation of mobile gaming and new ultra-thin laptops. With fast access and seek times combined with excellent reliability, the OCZ Core Series SSDs are the answer for consumers demanding this latest storage technology.

The drives feature a durable yet lightweight alloy housing, and because OCZ SSDs have no moving parts, the drives are not prone to damage from common mishandling. Designed for ultimate reliability, these SSDs have an excellent 1.5 million hour mean time before failure (MTBF) ensuring peace of mind over the long term. All Core Series SSD drives come backed a two year warranty and OCZ's legendary service and support.

Core series SSD drives are available in capacities of 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB and deliver up to an incredible 143 MB/s and 93 MB/s read/write speeds and seek times of less than 0.35ms, making the Core series up to 10x as fast on a seek-time basis and up to 40% faster on a R/W basis that the best performing 2.5" HDDs on the market, all while consuming 50% less power.

very gooooood deal...

Would rather pay more for a better one, this has the old JMicron controller with the issues I believe. This isn't even the Core II which wasn't too amazing. Better off getting one of their new line, the Apex or Vertex.

The Core and Solid series from OCZ are first generation SSD drives that have the famous jmicron controller. It's famous for causing stuttering issues and is best avoided unless you want to spend a good amount of time tweaking and implementing other workarounds.

You'll be better off going with [size=3][color=green]£91.99 delivered 64Gb Samsung SSD ( novatech.co.uk/nov…64M ) that uses their own controller with 64Mb cache and does not have any such stuttering problems.[/color][/size]
