    I have had no experience of any of the issues you mentioned in your post. At all. :confused:

    I refer you to Spreadie's answer, no need for me to repeat it.

    As for price, yes they are obviously more expensive than HDDs but do you remember how much they used to cost when they came out? In 2002 a 60Gb HDD cost about $140-$150 which is more, even when not accounting for inflation, than it costs for a 64Gb SSD now.

    So long F3/F4.

    I usually buy WD drives (Black for system, Green for NAS/storage), but I've got a 1.5TB Seagate external and it is the clickiest, noisiest thing ever. Hate it with a passion. Shame that Samsung's drives will become junk too.

    Yeah, but they won't be replacing volume drives in the short run... ;)

    What are you talking about? You can get a 1Tb SSD from Kikatek clicky

    Yes it is £2,300.20 but you do get free Super Saver delivery. :lol::lol::lol:

    Edit: Oh noes, out of stock. :)
