My wife was just complaining how slow our desktop PC is so I went with one of the cheap $60 OCZ 32GB drives as my boot drive and it made a world of difference.
A little light reading for a lazy Friday afternoon.
Techspot has put together a roundup of low priced Solid State Drives. Particularly interesting to me was the boot time graph on the 'real world applications' page - I didn't have a very good sense of how much time one would save by moving to one of these drives.
I wouldn't pay much attention to the prices out of this article - if you check your favorite bargain websites every day, you will probably see these drives on sale often.
