The drive costs $129.99 and for this you get TRIM support, 170MB/s reads and 35MB/s writes. As is inherent to all SSD controllers—which work a little bit like RAID—the less physical NAND flash chips inside, the less sequential throughput, so perfomance is down from the 80 GB X25-M (250MB/s reads, 70MB/s writes). Should still make for a decent boot drive, though.
