I was anything BUT underwhelmed. The only reason anyone would be underwhelmed is if they thought upgrading to an SSD was going to increase FPS and win games for them. I mean if you're too ignorant to know exactly how and where you're going to see improvements when upgrading to an SSD, you shouldn't be buying one.

I been getting nothing SSD's since I had a taste of my first one. RAID0 some X25 M Gen 2's for my PC OS, loved it, bought another one for my MBP awesome, got the Revodrive X2 (4 SSD's in RAID0 on PCI-E) Amazing! The raid0 intels are now used as a scratch disk and the seeks times are fantastic for my library indexes that use to feel like internet speeds in terms of seek and load times.

sounds nice Koruki. Looks like you got you hands on quite a bit of SSD there. I wish I was as fortunate. I'll be on my way soon though.
