    Wow, impressive stats, especially the random 4k write speeds claimed. I bet these will be pricey.

    Are these going to be SATA 3 SSDs or SATA2?

    As far as SATA based SSD is concerned, I seem to remember reading that they are the current king of the hill (faster than Intel, even in random write). But expensive.

    SATA3 would be nice but not much point at the mo, plenty of life left in SATA2 yet..

    sata 2. the interface is not the bottleneck... it's the drive itself (controller nand, etc...). you can't even sustain the max speed allowed by sata 1 on these drives (unless your work involved doing loads of sequential r/w).

    anyway, i hope sata dies. I'd take a pci-e (full-duplex interface unlike sata) drive anytime if only it wasn't for the premium.

    Wow, pretty impressive what these drives are capable of nowadays, shame about the price though. If they got that sorted along with the TRIM/RAID issue then I could definately see myself investing a lot more heavily in SSD's (as i'm sure a lot of other people will).

    It interested me to see the quoted capacities on these drives started at 50gb and then started doubling (100, 200, 400).

    Models I've seen so far (Intel aside) use 30gb (or 60gb) as a baseline and double in capacity (60, 120, 240/250) from there.

    IMHO, 30gb is just too small for a modern drive; 50gb should be the bare minimum for a drive.

    Intel's V series @ 40gb is pushing it. Win7 + apps can easily take up 20gb. That leaves 17gb (formatted). If you have only one recent game on your system, that's half the remaining space gone.
