My thoughts exactly.
If the 311 is aimed at home users (wear-wise in _addition_ to marketing
wise), then it doesn't really seem there is a suitable "Intel"
replacement for the X-25E as far as an slog device is concerned.
The drives are all way too big. :)
We are currently looking at using the 320 or 710 overprovisioned
(though the latter is likely more than we want to spend).
