Initially expected for a Q4 release, it now appears that the drives could arrive in just a couple of weeks, bringing larger capacities, reduced power consumption, even faster performance and most importantly a drop in price.

    I'm looking forward to the day when these SSD drives drop down to the price of a SATA drive. ;-)

    Since they are using a smaller process, I'm a little surprised that they are not making higher capacity drives than 320 gigabytes. Toshiba already has 512 gigabyte drives, which I'm pretty sure don't use a 34mm process.

    For my sanity sake I hope those don't outperform my month old Intel 160gb SSD... and yes I paid full ticket price for it ;)

    Oh hell yes. I almost bought the X25M last week but that is now definitely on hold.

    Because the Toshiba drives are almost twice as good as intel drives...
    Yay I want one :).
