LITE-ON Black 4X BD-ROM 12X DVD-ROM 32X CD-ROM SATA Internal 4X Blu-Ray DVD Drive Model DH-4O1S-58
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: works for 1 year

Cons: I bought two of these for two different systems. They both failed just out of warranty, 14-16 months, with light usage. I'll never by a Lite-on product again.

  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Cost: this is the same as the OCZ and Samsung units (all made by Samsung), and cheaper than the rest.

Fast: I put my /, /boot, and /var partitions on the SSD, with my /home and swap on magnetic. Booting and application loading time are half of what they were:

Timing cached reads: 7492 MB in 2.00 seconds = 3749.36 MB/sec
Timing buffered disk reads: 470 MB in 3.01 seconds = 156.26 MB/sec

Size: 32GB is three times larger that fully-loaded linux needs--there is plenty of extra space for other things. I kept swap and /var on my magnetic disk because I'm not yet convinced about write cycles.

Cons: According to the reviews, lower performance than Intel (which is not yet available). It also looks like Intel did a very good job with wear levelling--I don't know how this SSD will fare if used for swap or /var.

Price of SSDs is still rather steep, even at this comparatively good price.

Other Thoughts: In a corporate network environment, with all user files on servers, you don't really need a hard disk--a small capacity SSD will do. Now to get one for my laptop....
