1. Intel SSD Mar 11, 2008, 16:15 UnderLord
I wouldn't touch an SSD with a barge-pole unless it came with at LEAST a 3 year warranty, including diminished capacity from over-used sectors being locked out.
I don't think Flash has enough write-cycles for serious PC use, even with a wear-levelling filing system.
And I have been using such things in embedded systems for over 5 years, starting with JFFS (Journaling Flash Filing System) on eCos on a PowerPC card, so I DO have a clue.
