Pontus wrote:Also, while on the subject. Is there any IDE SSD drives that doesn't suck. Most seems to be based on the JMicron JMF602 which has gotten less than stellar reviews (it slows down with usage since it lacks TRIM and it displays an annoying "stuttering" due to high latency in random writes). Is it still worth swapping out an old 5400rpm laptop drive?

With the prices the way they are I'd go 0+1 or 6 and have a little redundancy.

There's even an 'Electra' sticker on the front, even though the sticker on the back says 'Mercury Pro 6G". But the serial# on the back didn't match what the firmware utility showed.
