    Just an FYI, they are currently all re-branded Samsung SSDs. Also, you need to stay away from the MLC flash technology versions. Go with the SLC SSDs (unless you go with Intel). The SLC versions are more expensive, and less storage- but you won't get write latencies and hangs.

    If you don't want to wait for the Intel versions, you should stick with OCZSSD2-1S64G (64GB SLC SSD @ $800) or the OCZSSD2-1S32G (32GB SLC SSD @ $400)

    I'm about to test your theory with a Patriot 64G MLC drive, but I agree - but I'm worried.
    At least mwave has a return policy, unlike the egg.

    However, any opinion on the GSkil 64G (apparently) SLC based SSD?
    Nice rebate right now.

    My reason for an SSD boot/program drive is instant return from "sleep" in a HTPC system.
    All recordings will be stored on a 1G drive, and the system will have no other uses.

    What I don't know about these drives is frightening.
