We're currently running some at the moment. All I can say is they are silly fast! If you've got the several hundred to blow in the first place then definitely worth it.

Will try and get something up tomorrow.

Just bear in mind that two OCZ v2 Core 30GB SSD on a decent 3rd party RAID card is cheaper AND faster than one Intel drive!

The addition of the RAID card also deals with all the stuttering issues that some people have been struck by.

This maybe another option?

From what I've read the stuttering issue is due to the controller on the SSD itself, so how does a hardware raid card get round that, by caching the read/writes?

I still don't really see the value in investing in a faulty product that requires a workaround.
