    Looking like Samsung is going to wipe the floor in the SSD world. Would be great to see RAID performance and durability

    There's the small matter of cost to consider, too. Sure, the 120GB drive looks a tempting sub-£100 upgrade, but on a cost-per-GB basis, perceived value increases as you go up in capacity; it's 72p-per-GB for the 120GB drive, compared to 55p-per-GB for the 750GB model. That's a sizeable gap, and if you've got the funds, it's worth remembering that you'll get more gigabytes for your pounds if you opt for a larger drive.
    On the other hand, it is worth considering how long it will take to fill the drives (unless you are moving archives/media/data to SSD too). I am a bit of a hoarder, I don't uninstall games when I am done with them right away, so my system drive in my laptop is quite messy. Yet even so, I am only using 332GB so far after over 2 years of use. It probably wouldn't be difficult to remove/move several dozen GBs if I really felt like it. If I was to buy a 1TB drive, I'd save 7p/GB over a 500GB drive, but if it ends up taking me 5 years to fill it up, it may be cheaper to get a smaller drive now then upgrade later.

    Of course, the point is moot if someone is thinking of moving everything to SSD, but for me, 50p per GB is still not cheap enough for throwing all my data/backup etc. into such drives.

    But yes, I can see myself finally moving to SSD next year.

    Without a doubt these are very good drives, I have a Samsung 256Gig 830 drive for the boot end and that does fine. When the prices fall to around the same as disc drives I will certainly buy them, but at the moment what I have and the 6Tb of standard HDD's will do just fine.

    I use smaller SSD's (120gb) for boot drives but HDD for storage of films/music/games not being played etc.
    Don't see much point spending hundreds on a large capacity drive when it only takes a few minutes while I make a brew to transfer.

    Doing film editing etc where you need all your data quickly is understandable but for most I don't see the need.

    Don't mind too much as the price is continually coming down, just be nicer if the cost per gig of the larger drives was near that of the smaller drives.

    This is more for laptop users that need speed and space, while desktop it's cheaper to get the 120gb or 250gb and a 3tb HDD and have the SSD as a cache drive. Which is around 6p/GB.
