Last spring the boss got a Dell Precision Notebook. It’s essentially a high powered workstation crammed into a notebook. The best of the best. One of the options we chose was a SSD drive. I was pretty impressed with it’s performance. Enough so I was considering building a new desktop using a SSD. Well after much research Im going to avoid these like the plague. It seems unless you get one with a Marvell or Intel controller your in for a rocky road. The best performers are plagued with BSOD’s and general failures. Some dont even have the ability to have windows installed directly on them.
If the newest Plextor or Intel SSD drives dont become game changers Im thinking I still might build something, spend a bit more for SAS Raid.
