    In terms of gb per $ that seems very cheap.i dont think i can get a 2.5 ssd for that price...whats the deal? 500mbs read and 250 write is good isnt it?

    Yeah, I'm on the fence about buying one for a spare part. It's the best price I have seen in over a year of looking at mSATA drives. I just bought one for $169 a month ago, and thought that was a deal, but the Crucial brand drives were holding at $200 for over a year.

    I have worked in more than 70 customers chip fabs over the years, and Micron fabs are by far the most advanced. Even Intel cannot hold a torch to the way Micron operates their fabs as far as cleanlieness, die shrinks, and constant improvement programs to produce the best chips available.

    You can find drives that read and write at 500 in the SATA 3 format, however the read speed is the most important to me, with the write speed throttled back just a little for more reliable writing.
