I wanted to make a quick post to say thank you very much for correcting w00t69's post. I took his word for the truth and almost entirely wrote off Intel SSDs because of it. That's why I love the [H]ard so much! Because of honest posters like you.
Take EVERYTHING you read on the interwebs with a grain of salt.
Do your own research instead of trusting blind faith, this is technology not theology
With that said, lots of good info in here, thanks everyone.
