    60GB Corsair F60. Lovely drive, and it's about half full, however I do wish I'd gone for a 120/128GB drive instead for future use.

    I've just ordered a 120 GB Vertex 3 with my birthday money, might be a while waiting on it though. The OP should put it to a vote

    I got the slowest one here :(
    Samsung 64GB, first generation, 90/70 read/write, and no TRIM.

    Don't see the point of those super high speed SSD myself, any odd SSD with 0ms seek time should be enough. I do want TRIM though.

    64Gb M225. Fine for windows and a few games. Mind you I'll be reinstalling later today for the hell of it. :)

    Maybe I'll get a larger size in the next few months.

    60GB 1st gen Vertex

    The only reason I would upgrade is for more capacity for a decent price, so will be a while.

    I have a 64GB C300 here.

    I find it's plenty fast enough for me so my next upgrade will be a 200GB+ SSD so I can fit my entire Steam folder onto it without messing around with junction points etc. I'll be waiting quite a while until those drives come down in price though...

    I have a 64GB Crucial C300 too. I use it as a boot drive. There's still 20GB free on there. My samsung F3 is my other storage drive. Considering a new second gen sandforce drive when it's released.

    Looks like I've got the smallest here... 40GB budget Intel one that I got last year.

    I hate being 16, still at school and having no money

    80GB Intel X-25M G2 in the main PC, still haven't gone over 40gb for over a year.

    60GB Agility 2 in the HTPC.

    120GB OCZ Vertex 2 for a boot drive, 90GB OCZ Agility 2 for a scratch drive.

    The scratch drive is a life saver for storing current FEA files on - the system loads the files up much faster and editing the visual outputs is far smoother.

    Is there a general consensus on what the 'best' SSD is? It seems like the Vertex is really popular, but I was wondering what you owners thought.

    All game installs are on a samsung f3. Don't really need zomg fast loads on those. I have about 30gb left over after main programs etc.
