    Very impressive figures. I wonder how that translates into real-world performance and if it can support TRIM?

    I'll stick my neck out and say it wouldn't, just cos the card features RAID. RAID + TRIM isn't quite here yet .

    Unless you thrash it, TRIM isn't going to factor much anyway. Maybe after 5 years normal use you'll see a 20% decrease in perf.

    Perhaps they will find a way to support the manual tune-up process OCZ call "garbage collection" instead. Apparently the first Revo didn't support either though, so it's not likely.

    It doesn't sound *that* much better than the Mk1 Revo Drive. I wounder how much it will cost.

    In sustained reads my array is still faster so I'd say, no thanks

    Yes but its not just about the sustained reads, its about the 100meg reads at most?

    Unless your dumping some stuff frequently

    Actually the older 50GB version is around £187, 120GB for £285 @ scan

    expensive, yes - but not too silly a price.
