Tried a Patriot USB 3.0 enclosure, X25-M, W7-64-bit, X58 mobo, USB 3.0 port. Very fast for USB! CrystalDiskMark 197.4/88.0 134.2/86.66 16.86/36.22 Same setup, but running from USB 2.0 port.. 35/31 35/31 8/8 Even from the 2.0 port performance is snappy! With X25-M mounted in either USB 3.0 or 2.0 enclosure and running from USB 2.0 port, performance is the same. ____________________________________ Intel says the new 320 SSD (upgrade to X25-M/V), previously slated for April release, will be available next Monday, March 28. Prices for 80GB, 120GB, and 160GB drives are comparable to X25-M prices. Also available in 300GB and 600GB models.
