    How important is the 4k write speed (which is still really low?)

    These are great little drives for running specific applications off, I kinda hope they don't "fix" them too well.

    I use 1 in a low power atom system - where it nicely boosts the OS boot time incidentally (even tho its just a low speed single core + hyperthreading atom CPU with the SSD it boots windows incredibly quickly) but the real strength is in the low power and completely silent operation.

    I use a couple more to load games from with the entire drive dedicated to a couple of game installs each and as thats mostly about the read times and seek/access it nicely boosts it over mechanical HDDs - and I don't have to make a compromise between storage space, price and performance.
