4 out of 5 eggsPatriot Torqx M28 Series 256

Pros: Faster than two RAID 0 (striped disks) Raptors / No Heat / faster boot times .

Cons: Way way to much money

Other Thoughts: Patriot Torqx M28 Series 256 , Well took my Score in windows 7 from 5.9 to 7.0 in data transfer rate , Had two 150 Gig raptors in raid 0 . Man real easy to set up , did a clone copy with
Acronis True Image Home 2010 , Changed my bios and that's all she wrote about 32 sec boot uptime from starting the computer to password.

5 out of 5 eggsSPEEEEEEEEDD!!!

Pros: Speed of course is the main factor when dealing with SSDs and I did my research and did a lot of comparing and read lots of reviews, and this SSD by far exceeded all my expectations. Easy to install in the laptop. If you install this drive in any computer there are things that have to be done to make sure to optimize the SSD to run smoothly. Just a few steps and it ran beautifully without hiccups or sluggish performance like you get with spinning drives. I love the fact that the SSD is tough, static free, and most of all FAST. I also like the ten year warranty.

Cons: At first when I got the package it was like I paid this much for this!!!
The price needs to come down, but if you have not read or heard something like this "YOU WANT THE BEST, YOU PAY THE MOST MONEY FOR IT!" It is new technology and they pull you in when new tech comes out.

Other Thoughts: I can imagine an array of 25 drives of this kind of SSD, hooked up to the supercomputer and then see the performance of the drive. Imagination is limitless

5 out of 5 eggsThumbs Up!

Pros: Speed - this drive is faster as my 2 300G VelociRaptors in RAID 0. With just a fresh installation of Win 7, both configurations were close in speed. But with the addition of applications and other data loaded on to about 35%+ disk usage, this SSD has proven to be significantly faster.

The 128M of cache - After 6 weeks of hard use I have found zero instances of stutter.

The Samsung Controller - Handles garbage collection on its own. No need to run wipe or other clean up application.

10 year warranty - Although regular backups of critical drives are always a must, the 10 year warranty brings lots of confidence to the table.

Cons: Price - Very expensive. The performance is awesome, but the $ per Gig ratio is steep.

Samsung Controller - So far no Win 7 TRIM support. No firmware updates appear to be coming. Not sure it matters with the built in garbage collection feature, but TRIM support would be nice as well.

Other Thoughts: This is the first SSD I would consider of daily desktop use. I place my OS and important applications on the SSD, games on my velociraptor RAID 0, and data on single storage drive. This has proven to be the best performing and most secure drive arrangement I've ever used.
