    Re: News - Intel officially announces "affordable" X25-V SSD

    I'm very interested in this drive and the fact that its available for under 100 is less harsh on the pocket. however the smaller drives tend to be slower quite a bit slower if you compare it to the 80 or 160 intel g2 which makes me think spend the extra 90ish and get a faster speed with double the space. any forts?

    Better spending more so you can get better bang, and space for your buck. A 40gb drive just means booting, an 80gb drive means booting, even the bloatiest of software, and some extra space for files, and *significantly* better performance at less than twice the price.

    yea thats true also forgot to add I am currently TRYING to wait for the 3rd gen intel ssds, was planning on getting the 320gb version which will no doubt b faster than anything intel have today. however by the time it would be over 2 years since I have been waiting to get an ssd, just getting a little impatient now

    I decided to take the plunge and pick up the 40gb one until the 3rd gen ones come out, they are sure to be delayed and or limited stock when they finally come out.

    I would have one of these for my laptop. 40 GB is ok but 60GB would be better.

    Re: News - Intel officially announces "affordable" X25-V SSD

    I'm definitely looking to put one of these in my old Vostro 1700. It's got two drive bays so the old drive can be the data drive and the SSD can be the boot/apps drive. The drive the Vostro 1700s came with is unbelievably slow to boot Vista - sometimes it boots in "only" a couple of minutes, other times it can take over 5. It's well maintained and frequently CCleaned and defragged, so I'm hoping this SSD will put a little more "pep" into it.

    I'll probably wait until the release of the next gen drives though, just because then I'll either be able to pick up a 40GB for ~£50 (I can dream) or it'll be an 80GB drive for £100 and even better performance - win-win since I can wait until the end of the year
