Not to mention that for £73 (which is the cost of this OCZ) you'll rather get Crucial RealSSD M4 64GB 2.5" SATA 6Gb http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=HD...
with new firmware it reaches 550 MB/s sustained speed and 50000+ IOPS (not 1500 like OCZ)!! OMFG - velociraptor drives has better IOPS than this ****. What about USB3 flash drives: they got even more IOPS than this so called ssd !
Plus avoiding OCZ is my moto, as I already RMAed 4 PSUs(650 W), two memory modules, and one ssd drive(vertex 2 128 GB)! I had 100% fail rate on various OCZ products.
Google aroud and you wont find any other ssd drive slower than this, but you'll definitelly find cheaper one!

@ yonef : Read/write speeds aren't all what SSDs are about. You get them for the crazy fast access times, which HDDs can't come close to matching.
Your comparisons don't make sense anyway. This is for the portable sector. You wouldn't slam a mobile GPU just because there's tons of discreet ones that can beat it. Are you seriously implying that a 3.5in HDD will fit in a laptop?
These are designed as small drop in upgrades for users who want an SSD boot disk along with another drive. Sure, you could put the m4 in and get better speeds, but most laptops don't have 2 drive slots. There are plenty of slower SSDs - these will be the fastest mSATA drives on the market.
