Very tempting....can't you put these in raid? I think I'll wait on black friday.
my knowledge about ssds is a generation behind, but the major problem with (the raid controllers that existed during) the last generation was that they had not implemented a way to pass the TRIM command through to the array disks. So while you could get the speed benefits that you'd expect from raid, performance quickly degrades after the drive is filled for the first time. Definitely do your research to make sure that this issue has been resolved.
And on the off chance that you were planning to do a raid0 and care more about the spanned size than the performance, you might be able to fake it with a software solution like dynamic disks in windows...
Sandforce drives have garbage collection, which gives you similar results to trim except it works where trim doesn't (raid and OSes without trim). I believe indilinx and marvell controllers have it as well, not sure about others.
