SSD Rundown

There's a really thorough article on Anandtech called The SSD Anthology: Understanding SSDs and New Drives from OCZ that covers just about everything you'd ever need to know about Solid State Drives. Latency, throughput, possible slowdowns, technology, synthetic and real world performance are all detailed in 31 pages of techy goodness. I've decided that when the 80GB Intel X-25M hits AU$500, I'll get one to serve as my system drive in my home machine. They're around AU$750 at the moment, but we'll see what happens in the next six months.
