New SSDs

I ordered a few recently from NewEgg. One for a desktop, one for a laptop. We’ll see how they do, but I was excited enough to snag this picture when they arrived.


$200 for 80GB.

Those 80GB Intel X-25M G2 are pretty nice, especially at that price. Their write speed is a little lower than some of the newest (and more expensive) drives, but their read speeds are very good.

I think you will be happy with them. Let us know.
