Does this... by NeoSSX
Does this ssd include a 2.5" to 3.5" bracket and sata data and power cable? Does it also include stickers?
It does include an adapter yes. However I'm unsure if it includes cables and stickers.
3.5\\" adapter by Glassbathroom
Does this come with a 3.5" adapter? I read somewhere that it does?
Damn by Clawz114
I bought this SSD at the end of April and it cost me Â£305. That was on Super special deal as well.
3 months later its almost Â£100 cheaper!
I can't belive how quick the price has dropped. Get one now! The drive itself is amazing. Lightning fast.
Currently the best SSD available. by Thomas
As of 26th of april 2010 these are the best consumer based SSDs in the world. They sustain such high speeds under normal workloads that they are constrained by the SATA II bandwidth standard.
Two of these in RAID 0 will destroy just about anything you can throw at them. A little pricey (Aria has very competitive prices as always ^_^) but totally worth it if you're in the market for the very best.
