Post OCZ Petrol 64GB
Definitely not the fastest drive around, but it was only $69.99 and I needed a 2.5" drive to put in my ITX Domain Controller as the 250GB WD Scorpio Black died :(

For about $1/GB though, it performs better than any HDD. I wasn't expecting much from a budget SSD anyways, but hopefully it has a longer lifespan than the HDD it replaces. I think the HDD likely died due to heat as it's a rather tiny case with no airflow over the drives (2x2.5" 7200RPM). They basically touch the top of the case, which in turn sits about 4" away from my furnace ducts. In the summer time, it's icy cold though with the AC running! :P

Speaking of HDDs. When do we expect to see the prices go back to normal?. It seems SSDs are the more feasable choice nowadays. The prices are nearly toe to toe.

Apparently never.

Production should be restored to 80% by end of Q1, but now they're claiming raw material cost has increased 30-40%.
