It's always best to start with a clean SSD, even now with TRIM.
Does this only work on Intel drives, or is it good for everyone. Only ask because it looks like a very sweet tool.

The upcoming X25-M series is very interesting again But that's not a big surprise

I'm not yet sure what to get this year. If single SSD performance is good enough, I'll get a single 600GB model. Otherwise 2 300GB, again in RAID 0. But I'd really like to use TRIM this time...
Looks good 600 gig yeah

Got the new drive up all tweaked A ok, When I first ordered it from newegg I got it sent overnight Fedex since it was light, Well when they finished my RMA they sent it back to me overnight, I didn't know that they did that on a RMA Didn't cost me anything for them to send it back that way.

What would you guys recommend for best price/perf in the 64-80Gb range these days? I could even go to a 50-60 if the numbers add up. I just want to keep it cheap and dependable for now, it still kills me paying more for 64Gb than a 1.5Tb mechanical drive would cost.

Been considering A V series

or a 60Gb Corsair.

I did slaWter, I was originally going to hold off but I'm not expecting price per Gb to drop any and as this is personal use only I'm not willing to spend a whole lot.

Heh, I'm actually on the verge of dumping the whole idea as this is a want, not a need.

I entered the club

Installed a Crucial RealSSD C300 128GB SataIII into a new build I put together this weekend ( see sig. for the parts list ).

Also loving Windows 7......Upgraded from Vista.

So far so good and fast .

PS - I followed this guide for most SSD tweaks, http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials...ndows-7-a.html.
