    That's actually really good pricing - we now have a 2.5-inch challenger to dethrone the C300! :)

    512gb good capacity, but still way to pricey for mainstream

    Performance maintaining, surely?

    These look good though, ~£220 for a 128GB single drive with this level of performance is already a pretty good deal, assuming UK prices aren't stupidly high. If I had SATA 6Gb/s I'd definitely go for one of these over a C300 (£205, 355/215) or a sandforce drive (£180, 285/275).

    its funny how you mention the Revo as a comparison when just price a lone would make the A-Data a far better deal in terms of performance to storage for price.

    I have my aim set to the 256GB SSD's, used to my 256GB HDD being OS drive so I won't settle for anything less. I'm only left with 2 options, go for the 1TB Spinpoint F3 while the SSD are prohibitive or SSD prices drop like Humpty Dumpty and I will treat myself for a Crucial C300 256GB or this A-Data 256GB

    Price excludes VAT so 128gb = £220 + 44 VAT = £264.

    A bit too pricey for me considering I chose vertex 2e over c300 to save £35.

    Would an add-on SATA6Gb/sec PCI-E card be required to obtain such high speeds? I didn't think current mobo's ports could provide the required throughput.

    AMD Native Sata6 ports do (with C1E and C&N disabled) and some on board Sata 6 ports do as well problem is most motherboard makers have made Sata6 an tickbox item so most of them are very poor speeds even slower then the native chipset sata 3 ports, like they never bothered to even check to see if it works (its like they think an 1x pci-e 1.0 link (250mb/s) is really going to be plenty for Sata 600mb/s never mind two of them)

    if you do get one make sure its an 2x or 4x sata 6 card
