Our first impressions from a the SSD technology are more than promising. Although the SSD market is not mature enough and such storage solutions would cost you a lot, their reading/writing performance will impress you. The Crucial 32GB SSD gave us an average reading performance of over 120MB/sec and around 70MB/sec during writing tasks.
The retail price is the Crucial drive is still high enough to keep you from buying it (~$799) and replacing your HDD. However, prices will drop shortly as soon as major memory makers decide invest more in the production, something that is expected to happen in the next couple of years. So what can we say about Crucial's SSD entry level proposal? It's blazing fast, performs according to its specifications, and the bundled SK01 add-on kit will become your next best friend in your mobile journeys. Too bad that Crucial doesn't offer an IDE/ATAPI version of the 32GB SSD drive, in order to replace the hard disk of our "old" Asus A6Ja laptop :-)
