    Random Characters or not it's a good read. Also a nice performer of a drive for a good price.
    SSD's are finally beginning to become more affordable, and I say that it's a good start, and about time.
    Thanks for the review Jon.

    Jons reviews are always comprehensive and you can depend on the fact that if you buy the drive it will perform as he says if you are using equal components. Its just a fantastic review, ( I own the 240gb flavor of this drive).

    Yeah, really appreciate your efforts and advice on these Jon. Another great review and another great drive. Glad they are becoming more affordable.

    As a side note, Jon's advice on what drives to buy has always been dead on. I picked up a Plextor M3 128GB SSD on his advice that it was the best bang for the buck at the time and the drive has not let me down. If you don't own an SSD, you are missing out on a serious performance improvement. In the not too distant future, every drive in my rig (with the exception of one platter for backup) will be an SSD.

    Not sure why the garbled code is there, it's not in the writeup. Very unusual, I'll take a look.

    That said, I should have published the 240GB version first and then this one. Oh well, keep your eyes open for the 240GB review soon!
