They have different sizes to others atm 80 and 160GB are their main MLC varients.

check out some reviews of the new Crucial C300 SSD that comes in 128 or 256GB sizes.

It is a lot faster than the Intel and due out for sale on the 22nd of this month ;)

The X25-E is SLC, and comes in 32 and 64GB, so 128GB would be a logical size increase. As for when it will come out? Probably not soon, if at all. SLC is lower density than MLC, and it is more difficult and expensive to use it for large drives.

Yeah, they are crazy expensive

The 64GB SLC is £614 or $959 LOLOL

and the new C300 is meant to be faster too and is $799 for the 256GB varient.
or $399 for the 128GB version - but the smaller version has slower writes than the 256GB version.

C300:
- Sequential READ: up to 355 MB/s (SATA 6 Gb/s), up to 265 MB/s (SATA 3 Gb/s)
- Sequential WRITE: up to 215 MB/s (140 MB/s for 128GB drive)

and has faster random reads and writes than the Intel too

sorry mike I somehow missed your X-25E bit.

The C300 is still meant to be faster than Intel's SLC SSD's too anyways and a damn sight cheaper too ;)
