I've been taking a look at SSDs recently, and although they're still quite expensive (and even more expensive in the UK) I think it's almost time to take the dip. If I wait until the price drops, I'll find that I'm always waiting Very Happy

Has anyone used one personally yet? I'm thinking of buying a low capacity SSD and sticking Windows and any other speed-essential programs on it, and then buying one or two 1TB WD Blacks (sticking them in RAID0 if I have 2) for the rest of my programs.

This badboy is the SSD I'm looking at the most, but at over £100 with delivery it's quite expensive.

Any particular reason? The WD Blacks are SATAIII, have 64MB of cache and come with 5 years warranty. I've never had a single HDD fail on me so the whole reliability thing is bollocks to me.

And I don't even think it's possible to buy an SSD that's under $120 here in the UK Very Happy The cheapest ones I have found are around the equivalent $130!

ive seen some pretty shitty ssds like 20 gig for 70 bucks :\ so unreliable. but yeah i have barricudas from early 90s that work, i just trust them. i hear the WD greens fail often. i had a WD scorpio fail on me as well. my friends WD external failed. im just paranoid since i hoard memory and losing it is never an option.

Not sure whether to go for one of these badass motherfuckers, or just get a regular SSD instead. They're a hell of a lot faster, and 50GB is all I would need.

NO. The RevoDrives don't have trim support.

That's because it's not necessary with them Smile I can't remember the reason, but I've read that it's not needed on the PCI-E drives like it is on the SATA ones.

Please try to find where you read that. I would be greatly interested to see what it says.
