I'm glad these larger and more expensive drives are being produced, as they'll help push the price down of the smaller versions I think most people have an eye on for their OS drive.

Once we hit that magical 1=1Gb ratio, I think we'll start to see the smaller (60gb-100Gb) drives starting to fly off the shelves.

Except that there is a problem with the 480GB Intel 520 SSD, its slower than the 240GB version, which kind of kills the appeal of the larger size.

I think the reason Intel charges more is because they're capitalizing on the stereotype that they make very reliable SSD's. I believe they're trying to aim for the market in between normal retail SSD's and enterprise SSD's.

Intel has been making good on their stereotype so far though, so that does say something about SF controllers .

And I want a car that does 0-60 in 3 seconds, costs $10,000 and delivers 100 mpg. Not going to happen. Fast and cheap are mutually exclusive - they are both relative terms, but the fastest drive is never going to be the cheapest, and vice versa.

Bollocks everything is getting faster and cheaper constantly. I already have a fast 80gig. Give it a year or so and it will cost a fraction of what I paid for it when they were new.
