    Yeah for faster random read performance.

    Seems more onboard ram helps.

    Price isn't bad either. Within the next few weeks might be a good time to jump...but with the way prices have been falling it might be best to wait.

    Sequential read performance by SATA 3Gbps interface.

    Intel still seems to be the best for random read and write, but how much do we need this for desktop applications?

    alot (or by this are you talking about sequential?)

    boot up times will be much better, and many games will see much better loading times

    wait for the anandtech real world test, probably done by tomorrow

    I want to see the performance of an X25-E with this new controller. Sequential Writes are already awesome with the X25-E (but would get a minor boost), along with a decent boost for Sequential Read and both Random Reads & Writes.

    I have my doubts the differences will be all that much actually.

    sequential write times. sadly, the intel drive gets beaten by a WD velociraptor; and i think write times are important when installing programs/similar activities.

    a lot, most of the tasks your hard drive performs are random read/writes.

    i plan on getting one of these asap; finally SSDs are getting cheaper. hopefully these drives will have a large impact on the pricing of other SSDs.

    Thats sweet news. I'm definitely getting a 160gb one. I might wait until Windows 7 is released, or I might just go ahead and get one now. Can't decide.

    Methinks I am going to get a 160gb X25-M G2 as soon as I can . I may go for the 80 though if the price/GB is about the same... I have a 64GB Samsung SLC SSD I'm using now and it's just a scrap too small (60gb formatted). I think the 80GB might fit everything I want with room for more later, just fine, though it never hurts to have the extra room. The 'Bay price for my drive is actually pretty darn high still for recent sold auctions and would nearly cover the 160, so it's just a question of whether or not I need the extra room or if I want extra money .

    Links? I've only found one shop with them on a pre-order over in the U.S.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^

    This drive is cheaper per GB than all but a few of the Samsung Gen 2 drives, and it's performance is in a completely separate league. OCZ, Corsiar, G.Skill, SuperTalent, and others are going to have to drop their 60/64GB drives to $150 tops or they just won't sell.
