    I love the sounds of those drives. I'd consider getting one if I didn't already know the prices will be ridiculous :)

    Not that I am against technology advancement, but for SSD's it seems that every time the prices start to slide just a bit, they relase a new feature that throws the pricing back up again. AHAHAHAHAHAH!!!

AHAHAHAHAHAH!!!Perhaps, but the idea is that the previous generations of the product do drop in price. Buy one of these instead of the the cutting edge version. I bought a "low cost" (by SSD standards) Kingston SSD and my level load times are so short that I never have time to read the helpful tips that display. Not to mention a completely silent drive.
