I had this in my shopping cart, but could not pull the trigger.

One day though! I will man up and pay the premium for one.

Awesome performance, but "premium" is an understatement.

Aren't tech prices supposed to go down over time, not up?

Man, the first manufacturer that can figure out how to put out an affordable SSD will rake it in.

That price is using 23nm MLC NAND so just imagine 34nm pricing for that drive!

I've had a Vertex 3, 240 GB for a little over two months now and it's performance numbers are unreal but using it against a much slower and older Patriot Torqx 128 GB drive, I really
don't notice a massive difference in performance for everyday use. Using a platter drive vs either one of the SSD's and you REALLY notice the difference. No problems with it though,
unlike the Patriot when I first got it, but it's been good now too after the RMA.

Nice looking drive...but I think it'll be a while before something comes out that will "blow away" my pair of Indilinx drives in RAID 0.

GTX 770 replaced with watercooled GTX780...but too lazy to change the sig.
