Well, I've been looking around for a cheap-ish 60gb SSD for use as a boot/game drive, and it's like trying to find a penny that was dropped in the middle of the ocean. I did manage to find something that sounds fairly decent for the money, and I was just wondering what you guys think of it.
Indillinx Barefoot, 64gb, TRIM support. Sounds pretty good to me.
Feel free to suggest other SSD's, but only if they're in the 60/64gb range, and nothing over $30 more. Yes, I know that an Intel X-25 can give me better performance, but not everyone here can afford an Intel SSD.
Indilinx is one of the slower SSDs regarding random read/write; but certainly not bad. Still, for a little more money you can get a real Intel; if you calculate the price per GB, you'll see its not that much above Indilinx-controlled SSDs.
If the 80GB Intel is too much, think about the cheaper 40GB Intel X25-V. It sure would fit Windows 7 + Apps + one big game like WoW. But that's about it. ;-)

get X25-M 80G or X25-V should be better choice for you
Anyway, I know what you're saying about the Intel X-25's, but the cheapest 80gb one that they have is $210, and the only 64gb one they have is $650...
I hate to say it, but with SSD's being as relatively new as they are on the market, I'd somewhat prefer a 'cheap' one with a decent capacity that will last for a while until prices drop to a reasonable level for the 100-200gb range.
I must have hard wrong about Indilinx, then... are there any other controllers that you'd look for in a good SSD other than Intel?
