    Like to see the Solid series die off and replaced with this unit.

    120gig drive for 250.00 would be nice.

    128gig models on newegg are as low as 229.00 but most are $260 - 335.00

    Ditto my good man.

    No doubt SSDs are already getting into "somewhat reasonable" territory, but I'm not that blown away just yet.

    Afterall, if I really need 2 second game loading times, I'll just play some Doom. Even off a 5400 RPM it's instantaneous.

    I picked up my 30GB Vertex for $83 right before NAND prices shot up. 90% of computer users will fit 90% of their day to day data on it (Arbitrary, yes, but roll with it), so for $83 the price was definitely right.

    performance per dollar SSDs are not that bad, but if they want everyone to have them, they will need to offer some with larger capacities and not worry too much about the speeds for just sequential reads/writes.

    30 and 60 gb (alone or in raid) rocks for OS drives on desktops... but what if i want to replace my laptop 250gb disk (i have 100 gb ocupied right now, could have less if i deleted some tv series ), i would need AT LEAST the 128 gb drive, and thats more expensive, 256 one would be ideal, but its WAY too expensive

    large laptop HHD is 320 gigs atleast when I looked at DELL notebooks this week.


    So a 250gig SSD for about 400.00 would be reasonable but I just bought a 15.4" Core 2-- 2.4ghz + 250gig 7.2K rpm , system for 619.00 for my daughter to take to school.

    I can't ,even in my full blown 9400 system at work, justify a 800.00 purchase for a SSD on a notebook that barely costs 1200.00

    Well even with all these new SSD from OCZ, I am still waiting for someone to release a 100+ GB SLC drive based on 34nm flash with a decent controller.

    30GB for OS is a very bad idea. An example here at work was an old 32GB SSD with Vista that couldnt apply SP2. Even tho everything else was removed. 60-80GB as minimum in my eyes.

    what footprint does XPsp3 or Win7 have on a drive?

    Forget vista it will start to go away soon

    I run win7 RC1 on a netbook on a 30GB vertex just fine...sure i have to be carefull with the 20+GB i have left

    Not everyone want to spend alot of extra cash to get a reworked Windows Vista - Calling Windows 7 new is ridicolous it's nothing more then Windows Vista with a few tweaks

    30GB is nowhere near enough, I am with Shintai. Personally I want a 100GB+ for $1/GB before I buy an SSD. That will be enough for an OS, and a pair of games I play, storage can stay on my mechanical.

    XP died long ago. And Win7 uses about the same as Vista. Any SP for Win7 will fail on a 30GB drive too.

    A newly installed Win7 7100 with Office Standard/Java/Flash/Adobe Reader 9.1+updates takes 15GB on a drive. And restore points etc are nasty for SPs. Even without the apps its still 14GB+.

    It will fail on a 30GB SSD for a SP update. In short, your 30GB SSDs are only good for outdated XP, Linux and some questionable vlite versions of Vista/Win7. But SP will fail on those anyway.

    Or are we talking about running Win7 Starter Edition? No pagefile? No hibernation?

    Yep, Win7 is pretty much a cashcow with minimal effort. Few tweaks, few visual updates and such. The difference between Vista and Win7 is practically minimalistic.

    For me 80GB have been a good size. Both for handling some games and OS. But it will be a 160GB soon when the new SSDs hit.

    Yeah, I don't see much point in getting a 30 Gb drive unless you're getting a few to create a Raid 0 array. I don't think the extra speed is worth the pain of restricting yourself when installing applications and setting them up.

    My 36 Raptor holds the standard 'installation suite' plus more. Pagefile is off drive, hibernation off since I turn my computer off anyways (my philosophy in this is that if the hard drive spins down, might as well shut the whole computer off). It is XP though.

    15.9 GB remains.

    I would also like to respectfully disagree that W7 is just Vista with 'tweaks.' I mean, I did preorder it, but no way is this my motivation for saying I disagree!

    so i currently own 2 150gb V-raptors in raid 0, i was thinking of getting 2 120gb Vertex drives...i read the thread and i cant decide if its a worthy upgrade...i think the VRs would be moved to my storage drives instead of my current 320gb drive...

    any quick thoughts?

    SSD is a really nice upgrade. Get either Vertex drives or X25-M imo.

    Internal Barefoot RAID0 maybe? It would be nice in performance therms, but you will need more bandwith or you will limit sequential transfers, SATA 6GB/s for example.

    Indeed, although I add in the Samsung (PB22-J) controller too.... Intel, Indilix and Samsung owns the three best internal SSDs designs nowdays.

    My Windows 7 partition on my Vertex was 19.5GB... All I did was disable the page file (on a system with an SSD, it likely will have 4GB+ of RAM, so paging is not an issue). I was left with about 8GB or so of space. I probably could have disabled hibernation too, and gotten back some more.

    In my opinion, 30GB is plenty for the OS and some applications.

    On XP, yes. On Vista / 7 you have the unchecked and uncontrollable WinSXS folder which is known to grow steadily and rapidly over time. 64GB should be the minimum for Vista/7.

    I feel like if you're conservative with your space, 30GB is perfectly fine for Vista and Windows 7. Especially if you use a vLite install, you can chop out of a lot of stuff you'll probably never use.

    Either way, I feel this is a moot point, some people end up using more space than others.
