How is it, as you say, "crap"?

Well look at these benchmarks....my 320gb 7200rpm HD transfer rate is slightly faster than 2 of the SSDs in RAID 0....SS are definitely good things, we just have to wait for the technology to mature.

But 62 MB is more than enough for general use.

Point is that they DO NOT meet or out perform current and cheaper solutions.
(at least in RAID)

You do realize a pair of 32gb SS drives for RAID-0 will cost at least 800 dollars?

Why do you seem **** bent on attacking everyone that leaves positive feedback on SSD's. Yeah they cost a crapload, but this is all just speculation. SO GET OVER IT.

Attacking?

I'm stating facts. The tech just isn't developed enough yet. It's like DDR3...sure there are some miniscule benefits at the moment but it's neither cheaper nor fast enough to warrant buying.
