Solid state drives are still not for everyone. Two thirds of the requirements have now been met, speed and capacity. As of right now the cost is still holding many back, at least in the notebook user category. Desktop users are most likely holding off for the first 512GB SSDs and that is acceptable. When the drives are finally released in this capacity at a 300 Dollar price point, I think we will see more desktop users take the plunge to solid state.
The G.Skill TITAN is currently all around best bang for the big buck drive for enthusiasts looking to have their cake and eat it too. It sounds like an oxymoron, but the truth is that enthusiasts have standards that are stronger than morals. Certainly a 32 and 64GB boot drive is unacceptable; 128 is right on the time and 256 is absolute nirvana, at least in early 2009.
As mentioned earlier, the 256GB TITAN comes in at 494.99 USD. At nearly 500 Dollars, it is quite a hit, but you are buying 256GB of very fast nirvana for that amount. Comparing the TITAN to the competitions 650 Dollar solution really hammers home the bang for the buck statement. Stick to your declarations and don't settle for a drive that will not provide you with the capacity you know will be needed. The G.Skill TITAN will provide you with everything you are asking for as far as capacity goes and at a price that is getting easier to swallow.
