Yes it is.

I have to honestly say, if you have not got an SSD already and can afford one. Do it. Now.

You won't look back.

Considering that the Intel G3 drives are right around the corner(postponed to Feb 2011 from the original Q3 2010 launch), I would wait.

Even if you are not interested at the Intel G3 drive(personally I think they will be really fast and give Sandforce some serious competition), the price of Sandforce drives will most likely go down a little more due to the G3 drives.

I'm in the same boat as you are right now, thinking about upgrading my 60GB OCZ Agility 1 to a Sandforce SSD with at least 120GB, but I decided to wait and see the price and performance or the upcoming Intel G3s.
