    I hope they'll provide more reliable power consumption data this time.

    I'm satisfied with my Samsung 830 128GB so far.

    My PC starts in 16 seconds / shuts down in 3 seconds without any special tweaks.

    Not by much, since Sata3 cap is 6 Gbit/s. And most current SSDs aleady nearby it.

    You'll need Raid0 for further performance boost.

    Just read the first reviews, It's really awesome drive and uses even less power than before. I think it's pretty safe to say that is the best SATA SSD on market.

    my 830 128 is rather nice step from HDD to bad shortly after I bought it for 189$ they became about 100$ or less wasnt worth the 189$ i bought it for but for 100$ it is more worth imo, for same price I payed for the 128gb I can get 256gb now.

    Though if price is right I might buy another one 840/830 And have 1 SSD for OS 1 for Games and 1 500gb HDD for Storage and mp3 and what not.

    One Samsung 840 128GB and one 512GB would be more than enough for me and the perfect setup ( without mechanical HDD ).

    Otherwise, one 64GB ( OS/Drivers/Browser ) and one 256GB ( games ) I could settle. In that case, I'd need my WD Black for Movies/Music and other crap. I'll seriously think about. I still have my old X-25M 80GB and works perfectly. Now I'd easily go with Samsung only -none else.

    The only thing I mostly care is the responsiveness and less, the power consumption and of course the fact that all SDDs are silent.
