    I am one of the people who is considering upgrading to an SSD but just cannot justify the price for one of Intel's offerings.

    I came across this (review) drive by Kingston, only 40GB, but if you use little media could be ideal as it only sets you back £70!

    It's not as fast as Intels are. Read speed is 170MB/s which is OK (Intels have 250MB) but it's write speed is only 40MB/s. Of course, that's enough for average user and you will see a noticeable boost from HDs

    Either way I think it's an improvement over a traditional HD. And for the price it isn't bad, but I agree there is faster out there!
