  1. A couple weeks ago, Intel confirmed the existence of a flaw that could cause heavy data losses on its new 320 Series solid-state drives. Referred to as the "8MB bug"…

    Respect to Intel for not dragging this out. Same with the Sata 3.0 chipset bug. I think stories like this would help convince customers (and myself) it is worth paying extra for a product from a company that doesn't ignore you. Even they themselves said only a small percentage of drives are affected, but they replicated it, and are fixing it as we speak. Kudos to Intel.

    The one good thing about SSDs being relatively small, is that backing them up to a larger drive is usually not a big hassle.

    I have to admit, Intel are one of those rare large company's that actually attempts to clear up issues with its own products, they respond very quickly as well which is nice. Better than Apple which simply blame it on "User Error"...

    No one wants AMD instead? Curious!
  6. I stick to SanDisk SSDs, for memory they have always been reliable and bug free. I loved their cards, I am gonna get the ultra ssds.
