Picked up a 150 GB model a few days ago.
Here is a single drive benchmark and it is pretty close to raid speeds.
Check out the CPU utilization.

Carpo: actually anything above 150 MB/s could basically be considered SATA 2.... since SATA 2's maximum bandwidth is 3Gb/s = 300MB/s

Here is one from two raptors Raid 0.

SSD is still too expensive although I have seem them in action when I was at Microsoft.

i thought about getting one.... since like 32GB versions are getting kinda cheap-ish now (i say cheap-ish because you can't really say 32GB SSD for the price of 1TB HDD is "cheap").

Mb == Megabits
MB == Megabytes

Please, 800 Mb/sec is just 100 MB/sec. Read the article again, it specifically states 800 MB/sec. Now, that is more impressive.

I am not entirely sure what I would need such fast speeds for, at that speed the bottleneck becomes other parts of the system.

if i lived in the u.s., i would consider gettin one

they're not only super fast, but their access time is usually less than half a ms
and no need to defrag, hehe =]

Wow, that's fast. But will it be THAT noticeable? I mean, will Windows actually be able to make use of its speed?

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
