So many redirections from that link.

Plextor? That's a blast from the past? Who's going to come up with the next SSD deal, Syquest?

most of the SSD are 3 warranty and both Intel and crucial use Marvell controller. They are among the most reliable for consumer SSD. I don't much, but have been looking out for a SSD for a while now. Really need to upgrade from my 60gb raid 0 original vertex.

alright just bought the deal
not the hottest deal around but since newegg screwed up my Intel 320 order, this is the next most reliable one other than M4

Samsung 830 128GB

520mb
320mb

80000 iops
30000 iops

Idle 0.078 w
active 0.127 w

It is super fast, reliable and longer battery life in my laptop.

I am waiting for another Samsung 830 deal around Christmas.

my local surplus electronics store had a plextor ide reader for $9. I grabbed it. tested it out and it does DAE 'the plextor way' just fine. I'm re-ripping much of my collection over to flac and this has been flawless so far (with the right ripper). the date on the drive was 2003 or maybe even earlier. still sounds fine, spins fine and reads audio just fine. I'll use it over the new non-plextors until it flat out stops.

the new plextors are not plextors and have not been for at least 5 years. the old ones (scsi and ide era) were as good as the opto format had. the drive to own.

But be sure to do the bit-setting; otherwise other players can't read it.
