At the end of last year we looked at the 64GB V+ and found it a superb SSD choice. How does its big brother fare at the end of 2010?

I really can't understand why the SSD are so expensive because there isn't a huge demand on them unless they are excluded from the law of supply & demand.

The fact that this is so fast, and it's basically memory, is also something that you have to keep in mind when you look at the pricing. Sure compared to a HDD it's expensive, but try and buy 256GB of super-fast DDR3 and see how much it is in comparison.
From the review.

I hope SSD's start getting cheaper soon. I know its basically memory but at their current price its not a good choice to buy an SSD. I am waiting for SSD's to become affordable to upgrade.

Really depends on the size, imho any enthusiast spending big money on a GPU and CPU should have a SSD, just depends how big you want it.

Ive actually got one of these drives in my own rig, I had to stop at 256 because the missus would have been eating poridge for a month if Id got the 512 I wanted! Perhaps I should have done this review eh Veebs, you lucky bugger

As with all new tech prices will fall in the end. But there will always be something new(er) to take the expensive slot for us all to moan about

I need a 120 for my OS and 256 for my games. I can deal with the standard HDD's for my backups. But at the price of two of those its over half the price of the upgrade hardware I should have any day soon. Some time next year I will find the money for two SSD's.

TBH dude just install the games on the storage drives. Makes very minimal difference there tbh. SSD's are all about the programs tbh.

I want the SSD's for my games because of the horrible hummmmmmmm I am getting from my mechanical drives through this 800D and onto my computer desk. There is a lump of rubber under the hot swap bay in the case buyt it does SFA to dampen the HDD noise. I have two layers of foam under each foot of my case to stop the noise and its killed about 80% of the noise.
