Default Anyone tried the 16GB SLC SSD? - 10-27-2008, 11:19 AM

Has anyone tried installing an SLC 16GB SSD yet? i'm getting a dell mini from vodafone shortly, and want to upgrade the SSD from 8GB back up to 16Gb, and wanted to see if the SLC version was worth it? ... index.html

is it faster than the STEC one that comes standard off the Dell website?

Also does anyone know if this version will work correctly with NTFS? i've heard NTFS doesn't work with the MLC version, but was hoping this one will get round it?

Well the MLC version is hugely slower than the STEC. The SLC MIGHT be as fast as the STEC if you're lucky (For the price they charge, it better be). I'd love to see some benchmarks before and after.
