There is NOT a whole lot of detail ascribed to the this SSD from Newegg as far as power consumption, type of controller, garbage collection/TRIM, etc....
A worrisome detail inadvertently left out ? I like it when Newegg, of all vendors, goes to the MAX to provide such detailed product information on the SSD's (as well as other PC products) they sell, but I don't know if it is just me, or whether they've been skimping on their product details as of lately...or who knows if for how long.
Is that typical for a new SSD being that (correct me if I am wrong) it was just released by Samsung as their first, or shortly thereafter, attempt at a SSD ?
Samsung quality is top-notch....but I don't know how to weigh this SSD in terms of what it is offering on paper like Newegg usually used to do.
This is a good price, but not a great deal, since the newer SATA III version, the 830 Series can be had for $199 at Newegg right now (128GB too). It even comes with Batman Arkham City. You can sell that on Ebay for $20-$25 I think and the price difference between these two generations of SSDs is pretty small.
performance is impressive for something that came out 1 year ago
but in today's SSD market, there are some better choices out there, just need to wait patiently for a deal (like the crucial M4)
but if you desperately need an SSD and is fine with SATA II, then go for this Samsung
