If I had a lot of money I would invest it right here and now. The new solid state drives are killer. They actually look semi-affordable too. Too bad the largest capacity you can get is 120GB. Looking beyond their capacity, they scream like a newborn with an ear infection. With read speeds of 120MB/s and write speeds equally mind blowing at 40-100MB/s. The speeds vary whether the SSD is based on SLC (single level cell) or MLC (multi-level cell) technology.
With drives this fast and affordable we are looking at the equivalent of the industrial revolution for storage devices. This breakthrough is as major as when the video processor broke free from the processor and became its own uber-powerful add-in card. To put it in short easy terms it’s as big as Voodoo was in the 90′s.
There are two major players in this SSD market; Super Talent, a major memory maker, and OCZ, also a major memory maker that has recently reached into new markets with cooling units and power supplies. If I were you I would invest in both. How much for god-like speed you ask? It’s only $449 for a 60GB, don’t whine about it, just do it. Buy one.
