Ironic considering the difference between slowest and fastest SSDs for gaming is negligible.

Ha, good luck selling that one. Could've played a better marketing game, Plextor, SSDs, in terms of gaming, lower loading times and decrease texture-popping. In the professional gaming world, them two things are of less significance to the professionals than the RAM timings they use. They at least could've learnt from ASUS and slap on an Aluminium body, flashing LEDs and a textured sticker to 'improve performance' and cater to the gamers

"Professional Gamers". Excellent use of buzzwords unfortunately, as flocks will rise up to buy these over "consumer" SSD's. The difference between mainstream and gaming motherboards is very small for the majority, these are the same. I noticed zero difference going from one generation of Samsung SSD's to another; once you hit a certain performance, it plateaus frown.gif You may be shaving off one second here, few milliseconds here, maybe a minute in extreme circumstances.

By the way, prices.

128 - $179.99
256 - $299.99
512 - $549.99

Also, even if they aren't priced that bad, isn't 7-800 Mb/s a little low for PCI-E? Or am I missing something crucial? (heh, Crucial).

Also, it looks nice without all the bling gaming gear usually gets.

Yes, that is a bit slow for PCI-E, as several other PCI-E SSDs have easily broken 1 GB/s. Hell, even an 840 Pro and Evo push over 550 MB/s.

I'm...

Really rather disappointed in that. You think considering how they are building them, that they could easily have put two, or even four mounts for mSATA boards (or M.2) on the PCB, and made the PCB itself black in colour.

BAD competitive marketing research. So much PCIe bandwidth and not using it.

The Mushkin Scorpion Deluxe is over three times faster. The problem is you cant find them.
