Take a look at the future folks.

I predict that in about twelve months SSD's will start becoming the norm.

In the meantime, I have a pair of 150Gb Velicoraptors waiting for a RAID 0 install of Win 7.

Soon, they'll probably be antiquated but will have to do me for a few years at least.

And Dixons have just taken the money from my bank account for Win 7 Home Premium (£45.00) and say it will be on it's way shortly.

Kinda looking forward to this thing :)

Also looking forward to V_R's build, it's looking great :thumb:

Just a little off-topic but just had an e-mail from Dixons who tell me Win 7 will not be shipped any earlier than oct 21 and will take 5 to 7 working days to arrive.

And I thought E-Buyer had bad postal service, lol ;)

Oh well, patience Mr Flops, patience....

http://www.bit-tech.net/blog/2010/03/16/kingston-won-t-provide-frimware-updates-for/

"Apparently those of us who own a Kingston 40GB X25-V Value SSD are not going to receive a TRIM update after all. That's despite the fact that the X25-V uses the same 34nm NAND and controller as the 80GB and 160GB G2 SSDs, which have got TRIM support..

It's not Intel's failing though - who have released a TRIM firmware for its X25-V, and the situation is highly surprisingly given Kingston's "great relationship" with Intel."

This is worth checking out if you are tempted to buy a Kingston SSD. ;)

HELLO EVERYBODY

GOOD DAY

I LIKE THIS WEBSITE

IN the mean time, all other stuff like music and games could go on standard drives. I get frustrated at times the amount of time it take for my system to boot however if I bought a small drive and used that primarily as boot drive that would make a huge dfference on system boot times.

ANYWAY TRY THIS WEBSITE

IT MAY HELP

edit (Ian) - Link removed... Bye bye!
