...on ebay for $165, brand new.

It's slower than my 60 GB MLC (multi-layer cell) Corsair ( 285 MB/s read, 275 MB/s write on Corsair compared to 125 MB/s read, 110 MB/s write on SuperTalent) but it's really not noticeable in everyday use. I'm a big skeptic when it comes to SSD reliability so I went for SLC (single-layer cell) SSD which has 10x the write cycle endurance of MLC drives.

If you are thinking of going to SSD (and I recommend that), go for RAID 0 setup with cheaper MLC SSDs and have a single HDD just for backing up the drive image of SSD RAID every 1-6 month, you will get incredible performance and reliability.

Good input, thanks! I'm also looking into building my next PC with SSD support. SLC is just so much more expensive Wink
