It is roughly half the price of the Vertex 3 240GB. But the price is still up for new technology. Considering it would take two earlier drives in Raid 0 to give these numbers is reflected in the price!

Yeah, I know it's price will settle down some. It's certainly a sweet little number, the vertex was beastly! I'd love to have double the space I have now haha

Indeed with any of the SF 2281 based drives. Would love to play with two of these for 1000Mb/s read speeds!

To take advantage of all this speed, you will need to have a motherboard that has SATA 6Gb/s connectivity with the best options currently available being Intel P67, H67, and Z68 boards. You can use a board with a Marvell controller, but wont realize the full potential of the Widfire or any SF-2281 based drive.


I have a GA-X58A-UD7 which has onboard Marvell that supports SATA 6 Gb/s. So I can't help but to ask: Is the SATA revision 3.0 performance on the Marvell terrible? If so, can someone who have tried SF2281 drives on both tell me how it compares?
