I wonder if they are using the same naming scheme for these as their non-SSD drives.  The Cavier Blue is "Performance and reliability for everyday computing" line and their Caviar Black is their "Maximum performance for power computing" line so I wonder if we can a faster WD SiliconEdge "Black" in the future.  If I had $999 bucks to blow on storage right now though I would get the OCZ Z-drive with the PCI-E interface.  More competition in the SSD market is good.  Hopefully this means lower prices.

For 64 GB, it is 249.99, not 279.

Paul, please don't confuse 3 Gb/p with SATA 3.0!  These are SATA II drives according to WD's website. http://www.wdc.com/en/products/products.asp?driveid=787

I was really hoping they were SATA III!

Nice catch - WD's wording in their press release duped me.

SSD still cost too much!! I will be sticking with HDD a little longer.
