Don't get the non-pro version of this drive.

This drive is supposed to be lacking any DRAM which I hear greatly lessens the speed and longevity of the drive.

Only slick at $80 I think, given the BX300 is this price.

BX300 is $10 more. Amazon also has it for $100 today, but you'll be taxed on that $100. The BX300 is a 480GB drive while the HP is 500GB. This isn't a disagreement about the performance between the S700 and BX300, just factors that need to be considered when comparing the two.

Need to factor this in from ANANDTECH's review as well: "The HP S700 is in theory handicapped by its DRAMless controller. Random access performance in particular suffers without a DRAM cache, and garbage collection on a near-full drive is more of a chore. This doesn't necessarily translate to a significant disparity in real-world performance. The S700 falls behind on the heaviest real-world tests and performs much worse when it is full, but on more common lighter workloads and with plenty of unused capacity, it is not immediately obvious that the drive is DRAMless."
