    300%, eh. So does that mean we will see a 300% decrease on retail prices. :D


    I can dream, can't I. :D

    I wish they would hurry up with the 1TB models for less than $1/GB.

    They're cheap enough now that I have to restrain myself from grabbing one just for my Games alone. Maybe someday.... ;)

    The more reasonable prices have no doubt helped that, every month i have my my finger hovering above the Buy button, before deciding that i should keep waiting as i will get more space for less money soon enough.

    I contributed. Just snatched up a 512GB Crucial M4 for $329. Glory.

    That's pretty good. The cheapest I could find was $349 on FleaBay. Mine just scared the crap out of me again. It's far too sensitive to changing BIOS settings and becoming undetected in the BIOS. Particularly changes that require a 'double pump' like changing the uncore. This is on an EVGA X58 758 board. I've had to do the hour long power reset on the drive three times. So far it's been successful with no data loss. Other than that, which might be caused by a peculiarity with my board, it's been dead solid.

    I splashed out on the new Plextor 256GB M5 Pro (PX-256M5P) for £216 off ebay, that's about £0.85p per GB. What surprised me was the MTBF of 2,400,000 Hours, thats nearly 274 years :banana:

    I've heard these have some detection issues, yes. I've been fortunate enough that it hasn't acted up one bit in my laptop. Doesn't have the latest firmware, but by the sounds of what people are experiencing with the new one, I don't think it's worth messing with.

    Ever since I bought my Vertex 2 to replace a dying 150GB Velociraptor I've made a vow to never build or buy another machine without a SSD system drive. The difference, especially in laptops where low-RPM sluggish spinners are everywhere, is just stunning. Picked up a Samsung 830 256GB in the last month and it's blazingly fast and I was quite happy to pick it up for $189. If only the 512GB model would reduce in price like the 256GB...

    Sad to say my Crucial M4 512GB died. All efforts as resurrection have failed...RIP. Hope the RMA goes well only had it a couple of months.

    Wrong statistic, you should be looking at NAND wear; which with your size drive will probably around 20 years. :)

    Good point, +1

    I was just surprised they gave a MTBF of 274 years yet only give a 5 year warranty :banana:

    Well good news folks. I tried the method of last resort. Just hotplugged the stupid thing in for an hour sitting at the desktop and chopped some firewood. Came back and still no drive. Said WTF over... rebooted and the drive was detected. IMMEDIATELY reflashed back to 000F firmware and all is back to normal all apps files etc etc.....like the last 36 hours never happened...hey...there's a movie idea...
