    Nice review, but I was really hoping to see power consumptions compared.

    For me it was obvious. Extreme performance for an ok price (considering it's new tech) , if I need to replace it in 3 years I don't mind.

    ssds might be ok in some years. but I am not holding my breath.
    TRIM is supported in Windows 7 and Linux (ext4), the next FW (coming this week) from OCZ will support it.

    I don't consider constantly at 80% being normal usage, but I get your point. Actually my Vista partition on my Vertex has been sitting on 9GB free of 46GB for a while now, and I haven't experienced any slowdowns.

    I got the SSD because I wanted superior performance for a good price. In a year or so there'll be a lot faster SSDs with greater storage for the same price, or you could get the original Vertex for a few dollars. Everything has shortcomings, if you want the best you will constantly upgrade.

    Use a smart os, use trim, right fs/mount options, ram temp folders etc and you'll be fine for many years. But sure, if you benchmark your ssd everyday you'll wear it out a bit faster than it would during normal use.

    Well it does seem to make a difference with USB keys as well.



    Not quite 30% but still the effect is pretty dramatic.
