When the 2 million cycles are done, your data can no longer be read. I have my OCZ Vertex since September. It's still working fine. No one can really say how long it lasts, in years, because it is relatively a new product.

The OCZ Vertex 3 is what I want to get my hands on

OCZ Vertex 3 SATA III 2.5" SSD - OCZ

Newegg is out of stock but 120GB at $300 is the going price. Hopefully they'll come out with a smaller sized/cheaper priced Agility 3 soon.

Basically you can't go wrong. I don't know any any that are worse than a HDD so..

That said the OCZ Drives especially the newest ones are very nice.

Definitely not.

SSD are much faster and also silent. VelociRaptor are considerbly slower (slower than even pretty bad SSD's) and are very loud and annoying.

Velociraptors are great drives, but, it would take a few of them in raid 0 to even somewhat come close to real world results that an SSD can give you. I just got a 60GB OCZ Vertex 2 from newegg for ~100 (love promo codes and instant rebates ) regular price on that sucker is $160 X_X
