    It's EXPENSIVE......But, I've mainly been playing with it till I decide what to do with it...Plus I keep needing the mem chips for other systems...

    So far I've installed XP on it and was amazed.....Another test I just used it for my swap and temp internet files. That was nice but a bit of a waste...Last recent test was to put a Virtual Drive from Virtual PC onto it...That really made the virtual XP run much faster......I'll probably end up using it for Virtual PC...

    I already posted a link to Sandisk's production drives. I know that Samsung is also releasing a SS Drive.
