I could live with the lower performance figures for a cheap 8GB SLC drive.

Would be good for serving small files quickly.

You would still be bottlenecked by your network connection in most cases. SSDs really shine in I/O per second such as in the server market. At that price point, Transcend is basically telling us "this is for enthusiasts, business users and people with money to burn".

I wonder why they released an 8GB version.
It's barely enough to host Linux and some files...
For XP 12GB +files is pretty sufficient, 24GB preferably.
Vista at least 16GB,32GB preferably.

For a drive that's supposed to be more robust and resistant to damage than a HDD, they're really skimping on the warranty.
2 years warranty for a data storage device? Not for me...

Someone should tell them the x 25-e 32gb sells for less than half (making raid look extremely attractive if you have the money) and is faster than their 64gb slc drive.

$600 for an ssd drive?!? Are you crazy?
All of these prices should be only 1/3 of that price NOW, not in 2-6 years, and that is for a 512gb ssd drive (state of the art today). A comparable hdd is only $40-65 at retail for 500gb, so an SSD should only be a small multiple, not 10x.

We're almost there, can't wait until these get to mainstream prices. 2x would be reasonable at this point. It's just glorified memory.
