I have a single 100GB Inferno and it feels even a bit snappier than the 3 x 500GB WD Blacks in RAID 0 I used to use as my OS drive. Not dramatically, but a little quicker.

To people who are used to single 7200rpm drive as an OS drive would be blown away IMO

My buddy has 3 Infernos in RAID 0 and that machine feels absolutely insane.

Great SSDs, we are both very pleased with them.

I put the 100GB inferno in my laptop, and ripped out the optical drive and put a 750GB hdd in its place. I could never go back, the laptop feels about 50 times faster. Everything opens the moment you click on it. It was a way better investment than getting a new laptop, my quad core desktop now *feels* slow to use.

newegg has a $30MiR on the 100gb and a $40MiR on the 200gb. So you can get the 100gb one for 299.99 with free shipping... well once they come back in stock that is.

the problem is if you need a dvd for something on your laptop you have to use your "slow" desktop to make an iso of it or share your "slow" desktop's dvd drive over your network. Where as you could have bought a 256gb ssd and just not stored as much junk on your laptop and kept your optical drive. Plus you are legally allowed to put an SSD in your desktop too you know.

And no trim support because of it so they will be dead in a year.

Trim's not that important with Sandforce chips and huge capacities. You won't miss trim till you've filled those discs to 80%. And with dead I suppose you mean performance degradation and not dead as in 'Honey I killed all memory cells on my SSD' ;)
