    Headlines - Super Talent's 120GiB SSD priced ridiculously low

    One-third of competitors' pricing, evidently.

    Need to see some revies of this product and real world speeds ... Not manufacturer stated ones.

    Providing it holds up to the mentioned spec, it is certainly an upgrade I will consider over doing in a couple of months.

    Yes I would buy it, but only after seeing independent reviews from trusted sources (hexus would do for one). There has to be a reason that it's so cheap, in comparison to others.

    Every time I think I have my new build mapped out, something newer comes along.

    Thats computing for you lol...

    3 Months ago I was going to get dual 8800 GTX's in SLi then it was a 9800 GX2 and now it's a GT 280.

    I'm guessing it's cheap because it's MLC. Isn't that the one where the blocks wear out after 10,000 writes?

    The newer tech (SLC?) goes up to 100,000 writes, and most of the other drives I've noticed, like the OCZ/Samsung, seem to use this.

    Great to see SSD drive prices coming down anyway, though!

    Personally I'm building myself a raid-0 array of 4*8GB CF cards on an old IDE controller I had lying around to play with until the prices drop.

    True, but that's why I like it so much (except for when I pay £xxx, and in 2 months it's at £xx.)

    Good point wagoo, you're probably right. I did that cf ssd thing for a while, was fairly slow (though not too noticably), but very quiet (sometimes didn't know if I had switched it on, or not.)
