  1. No idea what they are talking about, even if you didn't get the full benefit the improvement a SSD vs no SSD is tremedous. Are there better SSD's, yes, are there better system's to install a SSD in, yes, but neither of these should you back from an an SSD, properly installed and configured.

    would say an intel ssd with lowere read/write specs be better than this one?
  3. Did they explain why they don't think you'll get benefit from it? It seems like you have 2 sata 6gb/s ports...

    Na they didn't and i couldn't find any reasoning behind it which is why i asked the question
  5. i take it this isn't a real person but internet someone....

    intel had the ssd market 3 years ago hands down and milked every penny out of it. now it's just one of the crowd. ALOT has changed since then...

    Even their latest offering is nothing to speak of, just crippling as if it was one of their locked/unclocked cpus
