I know the message was specifically addressed to Matt, but sent to the list ???

I have an X25-M on FreeBSD which is a ZFS cache device.  That setup has brought a phenomenal performance increase to my piddly 7200 1TB drives.

I also have a Transcend TS64GSSD25-M 64GB PATA MLC which breathed new life into an old 600m 1.4 ghz laptop.  It runs kde4 quite well.

The intel's support TRIM which is pretty useful, except that *BSD doesn't yet to my knowledge.  Both my drives were ebay snipes and I haven't had an issue with either although the intel preforms quite a bit better for several reasons.
