Yeah, there's no need to defrag the drive because the SSD doesn't need it for performance purposes, and the unnecessary RW cycles will wear it down.

Even more so defrag requires the software to know the organisation of the data on the drive to get good performance. SSDs don't have that physical structure at their lowest level, so the end result of defrag is not all the data organised together but simply redistributed by the internal wear levelling of the SSD's controller.

Computerworld think that it will be another 2 years before the cost versus benefit ratio will make it worthwhile installing/bundling these with consumer systems;

This is disappointing... we need the OS to be optimized for SSD's, Vista needs this to be a focus for upgrade in a Service Pack.

Hohhhhh!

Useless! :P

EDIT: OCZ call their SLC line up OCZ SATA II

Also interesting to note if those of you didn't know already, but Silicon Power are also making SSD's however even though the read speeds are very acceptable, the write speeds are a bit below the average!
