Many companies are betting big on SSDs as the future of data storage. Today, the SSD isn't quite there for the average computer user because of the high price of SSD technology. SSDs are faring a bit better it the enterprise world where the higher cost is offset by performance. [Front page...]

SSD's are still expensive. It'd be fun to have one, I'll jump in after they come down in price.

I'd like to have 2 of these. One for games & the other for the OS.

The OCZ Vertex Series is the result of all the latest breakthroughs in SSD technology, including new architecture and controller design, blazing 200MB/sec read and 160MB/sec write speeds, and featuring up to 64MB onboard cache with 1ms seek time. Zoooooooooooom!!!

I am still being blown away by the speed of my 10k rpm velociraptor over my old IDE drive.

But I can see getting a hold of an SSD by this time next year for sure.
