Using it for cache? Doubt it other excellent drives for that purpose on the market.

yeah, thats the plan tell ssd's get cheaper per gb. plus i'm wondering why it's priced so much higher then other drives at the same capacity of 64. on newegg it's priced at $134 while the agility 3 is at $89.

note that i might order a ssd today if i feel confident of what i'm getting.

I wouldn't bother with SSD caching, just ge an SSD large enough for your OS and performance oriented apps and use an HDD for storage. SDD caching will not perform anywhere near as well as a dedicated SSD.
