Features    [ Edit | History ]
G.Skill has introduced Falcon, a new series of solid state disks that use the Indilinx BareFoot controller with a 64MB DRAM buffer. These disks offer read speeds of up to 230MB/s and write speeds of up to 190MB/s. Details about random write performance is unknown, but it could be pretty good considering this SSD uses the same controller as the OCZ Vertex. The G.Skill Falcon will be available in 64GB, 128GB and 256GB capacities.
G.Skill International Co. Ltd., a world leader in extreme performance storage and memory products with solid quality, today launches Falcon SATA II 2.5" MLC-based Solid State Drive (SSD) Series based on the latest, cutting edge Indilink controller.

With a huge 64MB dram buffer, the Falcon series represents the best read/write performance stability while avoiding OS stutter. The Falcon series is available in large capacities of 64GB, 128GB and 256GB: the read/write performance of the 128GB and 256GB drives are an industry leading 230/190 MB/Sec, while the 64GB drives are capable of 230/135 MB/Sec.

Pros
fast, light weight
Cons
needs physical drive access (jumper) for firmware update
Summary
This is an ultra-fast drive. I've upgraded my LG Z1 in a dual boot OpenSuse 11 / Vista Business configuration and even installation from the OEM DVD worked flawless. Switching between native booted OSes takes just seconds.

Pros
- loads apps almost instantly
- windows7 boots in approx 30secs
- no stuttering (thanks to new barefoot controller)
- no noise or heat
Cons
- none!
Summary
Bought 2 64gb drives for RAID0 setup to replace my 74gb raptor. Current setup read performance = 302mb/s. Primary hard disk score under Windows 7 = 7.7. I highly recommend this drive!

Pros
64MB Cache (finally)
Fast Read
Fast Write (finally)
Cons
Still expensive, but a worth while upgrade. But that's not a technical weakness. This is amazing.
Summary
I put this in my early 2008 15" Macbook Pro to replace a 320GB 7200RPM Seagate drive. When I put the seagate drive in originally I was amazed the difference it made from the stock 5400RPM drive the machine came with. I use my laptop for work, and typically have many programs open, firefox usually has about 30+ tabs open, plus Windows XP is running in VMWare Fusion. I took a chance on this drive, and am still amazed at the difference it has made. Leopard installed in 10 minutes. My machine boots in about 3 seconds (this isn't exaggeration...from the point the spinny thing under the Apple logo appears to the time I'm at my login screen, it takes 3 seconds). My virtual XP instance boots only a little slower. ;)

The best way to describe  the experience with this drive, is "smooth". I just work without waiting for things to load, or watch the beachball spin. It's very rare since installing this drive to actually be forced to wait for things to load. They're just there.

I disabled Spotlight in OSX (the indexing it does just causes additional wear and is really unnecessary) and all search and index functions in XP.

This drive comes with a 2 year warranty which I feel is reasonable. I am highly recommend this drive, and I definitely have no regrets in purchasing it.

Energy efficient, and less heat.
Vibration and shock proof.
Cons
Price, expensive.

Summary
SSD is all about seek time. This drive make almost everything load/install instantly faster. I'm happy with it.

Works great with Win 7 build 7201, no shuttering and great speed. Installed w/ Win 7 need no tweaking at all. Read burst=238mb/s average=227mb/s low=200mb/s seek=0.1ms tested with HD Tach 3.0.1.0. Spec Q6600 o/c 3600mhz + 4GB DDR2.

Ready to go w/ my laptop or PS3 when I'm upgrade. You won't miss it unless you try it =P
