    ..yeah I see loads floating round at the mo, but I'll throw this in anyway. I'm fairly sure it's been asked but I can't find it for the life of me so...

    80GB 34nm Intel MLC Flash - Read 250mb/s Write 70mb/s £193
    128GB Crucial M25 - Read 250mb/s Write 200mb/s £277

    There's no review of the Intel one on here, but on paper the difference is obvious, however...do I care?

    Surely boot times, load times, general responsiveness is dictated by read speed not write speed?

    Also at that price, I could get two of the cheaper ones and RAID0 them.

    Would I still get that SSD feeling and responsiveness from the cheaper Intel one, or does it use some kind of crap technology. There so many different kinds of controllers and stuff when it comes to SSD's I'm a bit lost.

    Sorry again if this has been asked recently :p
