Futurelooks says giddy up for a round up of some very affordable SSDs with SATA3 interfaces ... *Futurelooks? SATA3 Solid State Drive Round Up Featuring Corsair, Kingston, Patriot Memory and OCZ* he SSD market is finally at price levels I would call palatable. There are 120GB SATA2 SSDs for $179.99 or less and SATA3 SSDs for $184.99 and above. This will undoubtedly impact sales for smaller 20-64GB SSDs used in conjunction with Intel Smart Response (ISR) technology on Z68 platforms. ISR is great for pairing a smaller and cheaper 20-64GB (max) SATA2 SSD with their hard drive so users don?t have to reformat. However, since many of those smaller SSDs are still around $100, I think it?s very safe to predict consumers are going to hand over another $80 or so to land a 120GB SSD in the SATA3 flavor. * * *"
