No way in hell am I paying $1k+ for a hard drive.

I agree. While not much cheaper, I'd rather get a 10,000 rpm HDD if I wanted speed, or spend a tiny bit of cash on a tiny ( under 100GB) SSD for just the os and save the real money on cheap 2 or 3 TB HDDs

see! a ssd boot-drive with os and your applications or videogames you play most. "pclinuxguy" knows what he's talking about. other people don't get that concept.

It doesn't say anywhere on the website if it supports TRIM or not. SO probably not, which makes it pretty much useless compared to other SSD's

Yeah, except one small problem: they still cost way to much per MB to even consider logical for most mainstream users. I wouldn't buy a SSD now either unless I wanted to waist my money. SSDs need to have all the bugs worked out. One of which is after so many writes it loses some of its factory performance. I’m going to stick with HDDs for now.

Don't knock SSDs until you haved booted from one of them. Its fast, its VERY fast. I can shut down and reboot faster than I used to be able to shut down in Win7-64. Not so much help on starting a program but its there...

So... no TRIM support then?

If you are looking to this drive. The sandforce controller garbage collection is fine. So many drives are using the Sandforce controllers the whole TRIM question is getting redundant.

Unless something's changed, no, TRIM isn't available when it's using RAID.
