It's election season! The time of strongly held opinions based on feelings not facts!
If your concern is World of Warcraft boot times then ,no, you aren't really a performance user and you don't need this. OTOH, where I've seen SLC's used they really don't care about saving a few hundred $$. For my business, we only use SLC and even are doubtful about enterprise MLC. Deployment cost and downtime is far too expensive to use MLC.
Hmm, SLC or not, if this was Intel's SLC drive, this would be another story. Intel spent a lot of time developing their own custom firmware for SF drives. I'd trust them, Sandisk and Samsung over this brand.
Damn if I had the extra $ to blow right now this would be perfect to put next to my Intel 710 200GB in my not really needed collection of SSD's, most of which bought after I started looking at the site religiously. This site and SSD's are like crack. Hopefully another SLC deal comes around after next pay day, thanks for posting OP.
A friend of mine sent me the link. How about a coupon code to make it hotter for those in doubt.
SAVE25WITHCHRIS - Takes 25 USD off the final price.
And just to be clear, this is the fastest SSD you can buy today. It has working TRIM (like real working TRIM, not just a spec sheet that says TRIM works).
A review was published at RWLabs, it was a real review and not a preview like what I wrote. Notebook Review has a review in the works as well. Jason Ganz said in an email, "PS: this drive is quick. From fingerprinting to "windows 7 desktop" showing it's 1 to 2 cycles of the "blue ring", and it gets to login before the windows 7 logo joins together. Am thoroughly impressed."
No, 2012 Camry V6 1/4 mile is 14.2 sec and 2012 GTR is 11.2 sec.
Quote from robinski_ :
it wasn't an exaggeration or anything
a GTR will smoke a camry every day of the week no matter the road conditions, 0-60 time is 1/2 that of camry
it also won't fall apart once you reach 60 because the entire thing is made out of plastic (don't take that literally, plz)
You both don't know cars. There is more to a car's worth than 1/4 or 0-60 times. That isn't the problem however. You both used car analogies to make a point, but don't remember your original point. You have resorted to petty arguments.
If you can afford it, go for it. Marginal benefits is not a concern with someone who can afford it.
