4 out of 5 eggsGreat HDD

Pros: FAST, FAST, FAS, FAST! I bought (2) of these and i am runnign them in raid 0 right now. Unbeliveable how fast they are.

Cons: I dont know what it is, but every few bootup's, one of the drives becomes"lost" My comp will not boot because it cant find the other drive in my raid config. I unplug the power and sata connector on both drives, then plug in again and everything works fine. Cant seem to figure it out.

Other Thoughts: Asus Crosshair III
Phenom X6 1090T
8 GB DDR3 1600 ram
(2) XFX ATI5870 in Crossfire
CPU / GPU / NB / SB water cooling with Danger Den components.

5 out of 5 eggsRe: MTBF explained

Pros: Reply to "MTBF explained" posting, see other thoughts below.

Cons: Reply to "MTBF explained" posting, see other thoughts below.

Other Thoughts: Regarding the MTBF explanation below, while the math and theory is correct, AFAIK in the HDD industry MTBF is calculated based on actual drive failures and customer returns. We aren't talking about simple disk errors that are corrected on the fly or during the repair cycle. So while you *may* be able to ship your drive off for data recovery, MTBF on a HDD relates to an actual FAILURE. I just thought that the post below made it sound more like a hiccup than losing a disk :)
Otherwise, spot on regarding the testing methodology.

5 out of 5 eggsIs there a word for stupid fast?

Pros: So I bought this initially for my laptop so it could keep up with my Velociraptor. It does the job without blinking. I did full clean installs of XP x64 on both the laptop (and the desktop for fun). I also installed a variety of programs from CS3 Suite, Auocad, 3dsmax, ect. Its raw reading AND writing speed is incredible. Remember the old Pentium 2 and 3 days where your cpu was your bottleneck instead of the hard drive? That’s how it is now. I rarely see the hard drive actually struggle. My laptop does work literally as fast as the cpu can think and is always peaked. Programs load as fast (or faster) than the ram sometimes. Then I put this beast into my desktop for a real test. IT EVEN PEAKED THE 3.8GHz one!
Looks like I’m going to need to either get more multithreaded applications or a water cooler to push this SDD!

Cons: Its very hard to justify spending so much money on a 64gb drive (especially with all the 500gb laptop drives coming out) but the speed can’t be matched, so it’s a con I can live with.

Also for those checking the reviews to compare MLC vs SLC please do the research before buying! If your running or a server or are like me and go through TONS of data and want to see your hard drive out perform AND out live your processor then go SLC.

Other Thoughts: My average battery life was about 1hr and 45 mins (see old hdd below)
While my new average battery life is an even 2 hrs :) with no slow down even on battery!
This is my first solid state hard drive, and after reading up on it I learned that most SDDs run terrible on XP because its not optimized for it like win7 and vista is. THIS IS NOT TRUE WITH THIS DRIVE.
This X25 Extreme ran great as a direct drop in with no tweaks at all and still flys with intensive writes like search indexing and other SSD enemies.
Long story short, if you got the cash or a tax refund to burn ;) then choose this and you won’t regret it!

Laptop average HD Tune speeds about 200MBps and Desktop was at about 210MBps with the X25 Extreme installed with XP x64 and full applications installed.

5 out of 5 eggsMTBF explained

Pros: MTBF is a REAL calculation. The MTBF is determined by dividing the number of failures by the hours the device is under manufacturer’s observation. An MTBF of 2,000,000 hrs means 2,000 units could be tested over 42 days and 1 failure was experienced. A failure assumes that the product can resume normal operation or that the product can be repaired. MTBF has nothing to do with product lifetime. MTBF is not related to life expectancy or the operating life of the product.

Cons: People who claim to have a high technical understanding and comment on things don't know anything about i.e. the person below.

5 out of 5 eggsLook at the MTBF

Pros: The mean time before failure (MTBF) is said to be 2 million hours

Cons: I don't own one :(

Other Thoughts: 2 million hours is over 200 years. This has obviously not been acquired through testing.

5 out of 5 eggsThat thing is wicked

Pros: Blistering fast. Bought this thing in 8 months ago.
dd if=/dev/zero of=test -> (10 GB) copied, 93s, 110 MB/s
dd if=test of=/dev/null -> (10 GB) copied, 41s, 248 MB/s
This was on Linux. Blocksize was 1024000 Write tests at 1G were twice as fast, but the kernel may have cheated a bit.

Cons: The price and the size.

Other Thoughts: It brings my 512MB M$ Kindergarden XP VM up in about 4 seconds and puts it back to sleep in about 3.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Drive

Pros: Boot up speed is almost unbelievable.

Cons: None that I can tell.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat SSD, but Newegg shipped an open item.

Pros: Great performance.

Cons: No cons with the item, but you should get what you pay for.

Other Thoughts: Newegg should not ship opened items that were purchased as new items. Requested and received an RMA number. Thanks Newegg.

5 out of 5 eggsStellar Working Drive

Pros: The ideal "working" drive for any workstation. I currently use mine in my 2009 Nehalem Mac Pro. This drive stores my preview and cache files for Adobe Lightroom as well as serve as a scratch disk for my Adobe CS4 Design Premium Suite. I can't describe the productivity leap that can be attained from this drive as well as the dramatic increase in responsiveness of the applications.

Cons: None, although some complain about price I believe if used for professional purposes, it will certainly pay itself over in short order. I've used standard hard disk RAID solutions in the past, but even though they may supersede this drive for large file transfers, they don't even come close to things such as random small writes and I/O's. These two areas seem particularly important for Lightroom. I will soon get two more X25-E's and raid them for increased performance and space.

Other Thoughts: Not just for servers...
