Re: Do solid state drives offer any extra performance?

This thread has prompted me to do some research, because I'm in
the market for an SSD.

The technology is evolving very fast.
What applied to SSDs made a couple of years ago may not apply to
SSDs made today.

Especially ones that use the latest Sandforce controller chips.

A company called Other World Computing who make, among others,
the Mercury Extreme Pro SSD, equipped with the Sandforce SF-1200
controller chip which uses Sandforce Duraclass technology.
OWC claim it simply doesn't slow down over time, like other SSDs.
And, they say it uses 50% less power than other SSDs!

Because they market to Apple computers, specifically the Macbook Air,
( their website is eshop.macsales.com ) some people have thought their
SSDs were incompatible with PCs, but evidently that's not the case.

There's a review of the Mercury Extreme Pro on this site.
