power consumption ranging from 4.5 V to 5.5 V
Although this is interesting, numbers in Watts might be a better measure of power consumption.

I personally won't switch to SSDs until they are reasonably priced with more than 160GB.

I'm finding LOTS of problems with MLC SSDs.
AHCI and the drivers, bad multi-tasking, slow write-speeds, long pauses, etc.
I hope this all gets fixed.

i agree with ryan, i do want a small ssd to dual boot xp 32-bit and vista 64-bit...and maybe a wd 640 slave drive for all the media...thing is, i want an ssd that can prove its performance, and right now, they're about $700

I suspect these are really the core v2 drives relabeled. So they would still be using the jmicron controllers and potentially have the stuttering issues. That said, they are attractively priced and still have their uses in low write situations.

The core v3 should be coming soon with a new controller and higher performance. Who knows how much they will cost though.

Yeah, I don't see how you create a value series when your current low end series has serious performance problems in real world use.

I guess it's for those who only read benchmarks.

It is, by Microsoft. The trouble with most SSDs is not the hardware itself but how the firmware is written. It doesn't work well with the OS, yet. Microsoft's Windows 7 should fix that.
