This is by no means a "good" SSD. Almost all standard 2.5 spinning disks will write faster than this and mosts' read speed won't be far behind it.

Spend a bit more for an OCZ Agility and you end up with a much stronger disk that beats that pants off any mechanical HD.

And Seek Time's unit should be "ms" not "Mega-something per second".

This is FAR better than any spinning disk with >10X better random 4k reads/writes which is what matters in boot drives (especially the read times). I would suggest you do some reading first. And yes the Agility series are faster (not as much faster as the Onyx compared to a spinning drive) but I don't think they come anytwhere close price wise to consider them a deal. At their price the Intels are still the best option.

Hmmm.....

Difficult to judge whether this is a good deal or not.

£65 seems a good price for a good make SSD, but the chart you posted shows that the Intel X25-V 40GB drive performs almost twice as well as the OCZ for random read speed and is currently available from Ebuyer for just over £20 more (£87.99) and is 40GB, rather than 32GB.

I am pretty sure that the Intel is actually the better deal of the two.

Not voted either way.

Agreed - not saying this isn't a great deal, but of the 2 drives I would go for the intel too for £20 more and almost double the read speed, well 1 and 2/3 times the read speed I guess, but still quite a bit faster.

This is the cheapest of the "decent" SSD's at the moment.
You can get the 40GB Intel which is faster, but not to a degree where you can see a difference in everyday use. You can also get the 80GB Intel which is twice as fast compared to the smaller model and costs exactly the same /GB ;-). However if you are looking to spend as less as possible this is the safest bet.

This should be good, I have 3 OCZ drives from the value up to mainstream ones..and they all are worlds apart from normal HDD's. Cheapest..yeah..rated hot

This is now just £53.49 inc. vat !!
