Nah, they would be using something more similar to RAID-5.

Huh? I can comfortably fit Fedora x64 and all the programs I use on 30GB.

I really need a 500GB SSD to replace my 500GB boot drive.
But at this prices....I pass.

I think that it might be 5 years down the road before I make the switch.
I just won't pay an arm an a leg for an SSD.

...and you don't need to pay an arm and a leg for an SSD either. I not only have 2xVertex 2's in RAID 0 in my Mac desktop, but I have a Vertex 3 in one of my MacBook Pros. In my 2nd laptop I have a Seagate Momentus XT 500GB. Yeah, its in a MacBook Pro but that drive is plenty fast. Full blown SSD not needed...and there's plenty of space.

I think more people should try these hybrid drives, I'm thoroughly impressed.

I thought all current SSD's implemented features for RAID like reliability (e.g. strong ECC, wear leveling, etc.) and performance (e.g. reading from multiple chips simultaneously). If they're willing to build and brand this as an enterprise SSD, then it's a good price (amazing if it's SLC), but otherwise I don't see a point.
