4 out of 5 eggs Laptop great, Desktop Wait! 12/23/2008

This review is from: G.SKILL 2.5" 32GB SATA II SLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) FS-25S2-32GB

Pros: Quite and Fairly quick

Cons: Price, and Size

Other Thoughts: First let me say I would give 5 eggs for a laptop setup 3 for a desktop so I averaged it out to 4. I put two of these in raid 0 thinking just to try it out, it was only $200 more than 2 Velociraptor's. The performance is about equal to 2 Velociraptor's, I used a buddies setup to compare benchmarks of the disk with the G.Skill SSDs I avg. 155 MB/s Read and 78 MB/s write (0.2 ms access time). My buddies Raid 0 Veloci setup gets 140 Read and 100 Write (7.0 ms access time). Not bad but not worth the extra $200 in my opinion.

For a laptop I think this would be a no brainier if you don't need a ton of space you will get about the same performance as a Velociraptor , however for a desktop I would save the $100 to $200 and go with the Velociraptor or wait for the Intel x25-e to come down to a more reasonable price.

Rig setup:
Intel Core i7 920
6GB Cosair Triple Channel DDR-1600
EVGA gtx260 superclocked
EVGA x58 mobo
2x G.Skill SSDs (64 GB 128 KB Stripe)
WD 7200 RPM 400 GB

Western Digital Blue WD4000AAKS 400GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5

Pros: Quite running drive. Performance is on par with other SATA drives of this size.

Cons: Had one die on me after only a day of use. Lucky I had them in a RAID 1 config so no big deal.

Other Thoughts: had no problems RMAing the dead drive back to Newegg and they got the new drive in about 5 days. Thanks Newegg!!
