I broke down and got one. Need to reinstall the OS anyways, I'm going Raid. I'm tired of the slowest thing on this box is the HD's and the interface. Time for more POWAH!!!!

I'm so glad one of us could jump on this! These SSD's...they will blow your mind! Can't wait to see what they look like raided!

Best deal of the last 5 years and I just had to let it go...I'll remember this a disproportionately long time ! LOL

Enjoy Robbie your Raiding for two now...Raiding for two, get it! ":O}

I checked today and the price moved over too $74 (that's $5 cheaper than I paid) I did pay $79 with a $20 rebate. Just an FYI.

And just to clarify, I won't be raiding the ssd, just the two 160's I have.

Holy Moses! That is a pretty good deal... I know in 5 years we'll be laughing at this thread, but I've been waiting and waiting for the prices to drop.

WATCH OUT ROBBIE!

This is how I ended up with a new Motherboard (to get Sata III!) Unfortunately I then needed a new CPU! Then to add to my mounting horror it required new RAM!

Run Robbie just run!! But don't do what I tried to and hide in a Computer hardware store...it's the first place they look for you!!

The world is coming to meet you Boo! Prices are falling like crazy. The mother boards remain expensive But RAM, CPUs and SSDs are all levelling down, down, down.

Your time is coming to meet you! ":O}

soon enough. I'm sure they will work fine on my supercomputer, but the prices won't.
I would love to install Mint on a Solid State drive and dual boot with Win 7 on my spinner
