    I'm a little more confused than usual. I always thought the Crucial C300 & 400 series and Corsair Performance 3 series were going to be the same drives. Are they? The Corsair's have been released but not the Crucial C400's. Anybody in the "know" about this situation?

    SSD alignment problems.........?

    For those in the know SSD alignment can be a problem with Windows XP or restored images and can be a major PITA. I was turned-on to an alignment tool that will take the pain out of figuring/using some of those other programs. If your alignment is correct it will refuse to do anything else...

    SSD alignment....

    Other than doing an alignment during an OS install I wasn't aware that it could be done any other way. AFAIK it had to be done on a raw drive with no partitions and no file structure. Today I was alerted to the Paragon Alignment Tool that claims to align partitions on physical and virtual...

    I'm a pretty big defrag fan and have used about every program you can think of. I've been using Diskeeper 2009 with HyperFast enabled on my first two SSD drives (Titan 128GB and Intel 80GB M) and while I can't say if it's made a difference or not, it's been fun to see the difference between...
