OK, but not as good as an Intel for small read/write.

1 per order

I've been going crazy since seeing this post... But now I'm going off it. Apparently the published speeds are WAY off mark.

Here's one:

This would have been amazing if it was a good product. Good price though.

Edit: Just bought this: ebuyer.com/pro…828
Twice the size, twice the price but also twice the speed... Well not quite but I think it's a well reckoned trade-off.

Now I can stop jumping up and down like a loony every time I see a deal for a SSD.

Ya gotta have money to burn to buy an SSD this early in its life..

Why? The kingston, and this one are quite reasonable when compared to other upgrades.

Because per gb they are crazily expensive compared with other storage mediums..

but, you go ahead and purchase them at this price, eventually it will lower the price globally for everyone else as they become more and more popular :thumbsup:

You are comparing them with storage media, I am making the equally logical association with £/performance ratio. On that ground, these budget drives are very competative with say, a memory upgrade, especially with the price at the moment.

I am comparing them with storage media, because that is what it is..

You can buy a cheap memory stick and make use of Readyboost under windows to offer some performance increase by speeding up seek time to your usual hard drive, admitedly it won't match the speed of this for file transfers, but these will eventually plummet in price, which i think was my initial point....

You get stung for adopting technology early...

Readyboost gains are virtually non existant, and in some cases have a negative effect. These demonstrate an effect measurable by counting one elephant two elephant not milliseconds on a barchart.

They are a storage medium for the OS and programs as RAM is this is why, as an argument it has its limitations. As pound per performance unit ratio goes, they stack up favourably with other system components which is why I see the adoption time for most people just about here.

These already have plummeted in price and I am sure they will further, Il stick to my bargain kingston and when the next gen come out sell it on eBay to have an ownership price of pence a day.

Readyboost seems to speed things up for me,

I just feel these drives are still too expensive to be considered by those other than pc enthusiasts

Your computer is likely old then as a machine with enough memory will see nothing but a placebo gain. Looking at the price of 4 gigs of DDR3 when compared to this, It seems pretty favourable to me.

It isnt that old, its a phenom x4 @ 3.4ghz with 8gb ddr2 on windows 7 x64

it is certainly not a placebo effect..

when it comes to sequential io speed of a standard hard drive clearly it has no effect, readyboost aparently passes the request on to the drive, the faster access times are what you gain

Well going on what the other users have said after purchasing a readyboost capable drive, It shows nil benefir for those who have > 2GB RAM

With a spec like that you could have put 4GB ram + the readyboost disk towards a drive and noticed a real benefit.

I think it maybe due to the fact that i let windows 7 spin the drives down when not in use, it could be that using readyboost helps more than normal in this instance...

Comparing the performance of an SSD to a conventional hard disk drive, SSDs are far superior.

Yes they're expensive per GB, but there are people out there willing to pay for it (PC Enthusiasts). In my opinion, it has yet to go mainstream.

But as you mentioned earlier, they'll fall in price just as all technology does when it becomes more popular.

Was looking at this and found that it's now even cheaper....

Apparently Patriot are aware of the dire performance issues and are working on a better firmware. ETA on that is unknown. You can pick them up now whilst they're cheap and hope the performance comes into line with other SSDs on the market when the new firmware is released, or buy another brand
