If prices are right one can get two or more and raid 0, and blow the intel single drive speeds away.

I have 4x Core v2 series got them $69 a pop 30G each, raid 0, 507 reads over 300 writes.

How much real performance benefit would such a drive give over a new 7200RPM, 500GByte/platter HDD?

Transfer speeds are comparable but obviously the SSD has lower latencies.

Because unless it's noticeably faster than a HDD with 4-8 times the capacity I still wouldn't buy it unless the price were identical.

Storage systems just isn't enough of a bottleneck for me to be worth these investments.

Why do people care about sequential speeds so much? Do you transfer 10GB media files everyday?

Toms Hardware- Stop advertising the sequential speeds and start showing what matters.

[citation][nom]doomtomb[/nom]That's cruddy compared to other SSDs pushing over 230MB/s read. This thing better be affordable.[/citation]
I does make sense for laptops... I mean laptops NEED to be slower than desktops otherwise a lot of people will be wrong. Remember the Mhz race?

The only ssd Intel sells that can put out those speeds is the E model and the 32gb goes for about $400. Considering you could get 2 30gb Vertex Indilinx based drives for $250 and in raid0 they get better performence than your setup with twice the capacity, I would reword your statement. You get what you pay for, but some people pay more than others and some people get more than others.

The OCZ Solid 2 drives will come in 64 GB and 128 GB sizes, but sadly and curiously, OCZ isn't letting out pricing details on this "ultra-affordable" drive just yet. Looks like we'll have to wait till it hits stores.
That little detail right there kinda makes this non-news for me. All I really care about is what the price is going to be. To say "affordable" is completely subjective and generally meaningless until you attach a number to it.
