That's very cool! I like diskeeper.

While ExpressCache is OEM-only at present, we are listening to users... If we hear interest in ExpressCache for the aftermarket, we'll likely build it.

Awesome. Thanks for posting that. Put me down for an order.

The express cache unit boots at about the same speed or perhaps even a little slower than my rig boots. I am using a Vertex II SSD for boot and OS so my question would be that if you are already using an SSD as your boot drive would this do you any good or is this a cheaper replacement for a boot SSD?

This to me seems like a solution for those that want the storage of a regular HDD without having to pay lots of money for a SSD. Thinking single HDD rather than multiple drives as this will likely be offered to manufacturers rather than consumers. If you follow my ramblings.

Yes, that makes sense. As I use multiple drives (SSD for boot, Raid 0 Raptors for programs, RE3 HDD for data) it probibally would not do me much good, on the otherhand, it might be just the thing for a notebook. .... Interesting

One of the benefits of using the SSD as a cache is that, rather than having a dedicated SSD for boot, you could maintain a single volume and ensure your most important app/boot files are on the SSD. With multiple volumes, you have to manuallly decide where data goes. With ExpressCache you'd be able to use the SSD for apps too. ExpressCache also allows you to pin an app into the SSD, so it never gets evacuated. You can also carve out a part of the SSD for use as cache and format and assign a drive letter to the remaining part. For example, you could take a 120GB G3 drive and give 40GB to ExpressCache and use the remaining capacity as drive D:, or drive C: - if you still prefer to have a SSD-dedicated boot volume.

Are the average PC's really that slow? Mine boots as fast or even a few seconds faster than the laptop with Diskeeper.

Jesus I want this. This is a complete waste if I can't get it though. If its only going to PC makers.

will this  be usable with a dual boot setup? 

it looks like it only affects windows, so it would make sense that that would be the case.

I love how companies are coming up with ways to utilize the speed of SSD's and the cheap capacity of HDD. 

Is it going to be possible to build this feature into a custom rig or must it be built in certain computers?
