Just thought I'd put out this topic to garner the benefit of other member's experiences. I am looking to buy a pair of SSDs to form a RAID 0 boot array, and was looking at the Intel X25-V's, so that gives you an idea of my budget constraints, although I'd spend more for major performance gains. I have also considered using the X25-M's instead, or maybe one of the OWC SSDs. I'm assuming as the array would only be for OS and Apps, that the X25-V's poor write performance would be less of an issue. I've seen the various benchmarks, such as AnandTech's, so really I'm just looking for people to share the practical breakpoints in performance provided by various SSD's, e.g. how high need the speed be to show empirical improvement versus how fast is really unnecessary or bottlenecked. BTW, my usage is primarily Logic and Photoshop and I have a 2008 MP.
