A solid state drive will change your life. It's just simply amazing. The speed is everything you ever asked for but never got from an upgrade. It's strange to realize that hard drives have been whats slowing us down for so long.

It's not about space it's about speed. This is your boot drive and the 1-3 most used applications and games. The rest goes on your other drive which is 1-2 tb.

Only 128 GB?
Why is this so expensive?

$219.99 at Best Buy... I thought you were better than this Woot! Still, saves you about $15, so I suppose saving money is always a plus.

3.6 stars is the average on Buzzillions for this one.

I do a daily woot blog where I talk about the woot, link to CSEs, find reviews, etc. A few people have told me it's useful. Google "useful linkage" and there it is.

Because it's a Solid State Drive! This means that it has no mechanical moving parts, and is super fast compared to even the fastest conventional spinning hard drive!

Because it's flash memory rather than a magnetic platter

Considering I just spent 190 on an intel SSD 80 GB. I approve this as a good deal.

Newer model on Amazon for $219.00

http://www.amazon.com/Kingston-SSDNow-128GB-SV100S2-128GZ/dp/B004BDORNI/ref=dp_ob_title_ce

I'd be in if it was around the $150.00 price point.

We're back to where paying around $1.00 per GB is a deal :P

Here's a review from Testfreaks and the Amazon page for what looks like a similar Kingston SSD.

Edit: and here's a review on Macworld

Solid state? Back in my day, you had to crank the hard drive to get it started! You kids and your gadgets...

tried SSD (OCZ & Kingston.)

It's ungodly fast, but when it doesn't work, IT. DOESN'T. WORK.

Get a warranty, back up your stuff, & always have an image + spare drive handy if the SSD fails.

This is NOT SATA 3! SATA 3 is 6.0GB/s. This is SATA II at 3.0GB/s. Woot, can I get a free one for pointing this out?

Wait, is this SATA II or III?

Same model number, this says SATA II. However, keep in mind Woot has a $50 MIR her apparently

Because it is solid state and not mechanical like traditional drive. Takes a lot of flash memory chips to build a drive of this capacity.

I love how all the negative comments so far are clearly from people who didn't bother to read enough to notice the MIR.

"I would be in if it were around the $150 price point."

Thanks for pointing that out - it's easy to miss. Woot should shout it out on the item page.
