The Iomega Zip Drive aka SSD of our time is still not delivering on capacity and price point. It has been what 8 years? Ridiculous.

Hold on, intended to "delvier"? Whats that, some new word I don't know about? I'm pretty sure that was supposed to say deliver, though, LOL!

Thanks for contributing something of importance. Sarcasm. Don't google it.

Just curious, but is this decent? I am looking to upgrade to an SSD, but I was only given $150, max, to do it. However, for work, I need at least a 240GB drive to store all the programs/files that would benefit from the faster read/write times. Are there any better deals? I'm currently using a 7200rpm HDD, so I'm guessing ANY SSD is going to give me much better performance, regardless of the actual specifications.

Ignore his comment above.

.50 per GB is kind of the current rate. Of course it continues to drop.
Right now SSD's are damn impressive at this price point. If anything they continue to grow and improve in every direction.

Your budget should allow for you to get something in the 250GB range. I think these drives mentioned here seem pretty reasonable and the warranty is not bad considering the hassle free nature. Check out MPC's articles on SSD's to find out more or google it. Good luck.

250GB? What is this 2004? No thanks. SSD drives have been around for what 8 years and still fail to deliver on price? SSD as desktop drives need to go the way of the Zip Drive, and Dot Matrix.

I had a OCZ Fatality 750 PSU that fried at 2 years. I RMA'd the unit and got a 90 day replacement (1.5 week turnover) which is the one I use daily still working fine. Granted the RMA was with another company but contrary to Cooler Master which RMA process sucks ass (1 months just to get an RMA # and shipping info), these people made it easy. TLDR; warranty in the PC market is top priority since I'll never have a Cooler Master product again.

Would I buy a OCZ SSD? after a while of reviews, why not.
