Just posted is my review of the Intel X25-E 64GB solid state drive (SSD).
Photoshop users in particular might want to check out the scratch volume results.
Users of Adobe Lightroom and similar programs that maintain a huge file catalog might be interested in the high reliability and incredible speed of a solid state drive (SSD). While sustained read and write speeds are incredibly fast, random access is even more impressive. Of course, at 64GB, original image files will still need a home on conventional hard drives until SSD drives grow enough in capacity, which might occur in 2009.
My data is 1.1TB, and simply out of the question for SSD storage, but that equation might change next year. However, I’m never going back to a hard drive for my system disk, and that’s what I’ll be using in my MacBook Pro soon as well: high reliability and high speed.
