    Blimey, that's nearly on par for speed as Hairy Coo's setup! :D

    Must admit that these SSD's will be the way to go quite soon?

    Indeed, I was quite perplexed when solid state gave way to 'disk' years ago. I think current trend will be around for a while yet though due to cost being driven down but I look forward to the day using SS making my disk utilities redundant.

    The disadvantages are:

    Limited write cycles – flash-memory cells will often wear out after 10,000-100,000 write cycles
    Price
    Capacity
    Slower write speeds
    Lower storage density

    A good HDD setup, for example mine is 2 large HDDs in RAID 0 configuration, is faster in READ/WRITE than ordinary SSDs-apart from costing a fraction of comparable capacity SSDs.

    Long way to go yet!
