Intel X25-M Mainstream Solid State Drive - 34nm Product Line - 120 GB
Advantages: Fast read and write, sturdy
Disadvantages: Not much storage
This product by Intel is extremely good. While the price is a little high for the amount of storage that you get, you must keep in mind that this is a Solid State Drive. That means there are no moving parts in this drive, similar to flash storage in new phones and ipod touchs. This makes for amazing read and write speeds as well as a sturdy drive. You could easily drop this, though I wouldn't suggest it, and it would probably still work. Because of this, this drive makes for a wonderful boot drive, but isn't the best when it comes to mass amounts of storage. Overall I give this product a 3.5/5 stars. It is fast, it is sturdy, but companies really need to start increasing the storage capacity of their SSD drives and decreasing the prices if they want their products to become more mainstream and popular at all.
Summary: Probably worth the money, but saving for later releases would be suggested
