SanDisk Ultra SSD

When SSD drives first hit the scene, they were obscenely expensive, making just about everyone wait for prices to come down. Now, it seems, we are at a point where SSD manufacturers are hoping to convince you that a simple swap of the old HDD for a new SSD will be a much better financial decision than replacing the entire computer, and in many situations, we think that's a valid argument. SanDisk is one such company, and its new Ultra SSD is now shipping to retailers. You get 280 MB per second read speeds and 270 MB per second write speeds, and the drives are available in three size capacities. You can grab a 60 GB model for $129, a 120 GB version for $219, and lastly, you can score a full 240 GB for $449. You can grab e'm now over at Newegg.

I reckon SSDs are good for quick boot ups, and regular hdd for storage because SSDs haven;t quite reached the same capacity as HDDs. Give another year or two we probabaly won’t need HDDs anymore in consumer desktops and laptops.
