Summary: So finally I decided to try one of the available SSD drives in the market. I choosed the Intel 40GB SSD Drive as it was the cheapest drive and best brand available (in my opinion) at the moment . The drive is amazing. It has a great speed both for reading and writing.
Summary: Everything loads up a lot faster but soon you want to load more stuff and have to rely on a second hard disk which makes things slower. I made another purchase of 80GB version of same product because of this reason.
Summary: I bought two of the Intel 40GB X25, stuck them in two of my PCs,and everything works great and fast! Not a whole lot of space (40GB), but coupling it with an 500GB HDD, as a slave, I now have two awesome PCs.
Summary: I picked up one of these for my Asus EeePC Netbook. It works great! I chose this SSD for several reasons. First, this one has the lowest power consumption rating of all the SSD drives I researched. It should extend my battery life watching movies on long flights.
Summary: This is really a neutered Intel X-25M 80 Gb (it has half the memory and half the channels). It still performs within 80-90 % of the X-25M in most benchmarks. It is a great way to get good SSD performance for very little money, but after installing the OS, some applications and one or two games there...
Summary: I bought this drive about a month ago and I must say that it really sped up the boot time and application load time for my computer, an Intel Core i7 860 with 8 GB of RAM. PRO: In a word, SPEED!
Summary: This thing is amazing-- the best upgrade I could have ever done. The only downside is it price-capacity ratio, but oli understand some comprises have to be made, given the technology. Overall, my computure is better for it.
Summary: This drive is fast. There will be comments about how the specs put it slower than other drives, but my real-world usage shows it as pretty fast. Went from a Windows Experience score of 5.8 to 7.1 for the drive (Q6600 w/ 6GB RAM), though these numbers don't do it justice.
