    Something tells me that is going to be a very short-lived price range though.

    The micro sized 16gb drives from Intel will be very cheap before too long.

    Just a matter of time before the big drives are affordable.

    What makes these so expensive isn't their capacity anymore, it's the speed with which the memory controller can poll each block of memory to deliver data at high speed. Cheaper SSHDDs still can't beat a basic Seagate IDE drive.

    It's going to be great when they get that worked out to where a 40gb drive is the price of a normal drive.
    One of those and the 10" Asus eee notebook, and I'd be all set.

    Yeah SSD drives are becoming more popular but the price is crazy. A RAID 5 SSD setup would be nice. I still haven't actually seen benchmark comparisons between RAID 5 SSD and RAID 5 15.5k SCSI.

    Probably because obtaining all that equipment for the purpose of benchmarking is cost-prohibitive.

    Why would you need them in RAID?

    For the same reason you need any drive in a RAID. To get faster speeds by splitting the load across multiple drives, and to protect your data in case one of the drives explodes.

    lol at this review


    Pros: These disks make a huge difference. I have 6 of these in a RAID 0 for over a month now and haven't had to reload Vista yet. Very reliable. I don't have to worry about overheating while playing COD 4
    Cons: The price, and the disk capacity. For $15,000 I could have paid for the rest of my college loan off. You can get this cheaper elsewhere.
    Other Thoughts: I don't really own 6 of these. I just own 0 of them.
