Sorry, Jeff. I couldn't disagree with you more. In fact, let me be blunt. You couldn't be more wrong if you tried. Government intrusion and regulation is always a limiting factor in the growth of free enterprise. Yes, it's necessary in events where you might otherwise kill or harm someone, or where the very lack of regulation might inhibit such growth. None of those cases apply in even the tiniest way here. You might look at these, but some of it is far too overtly political, and the truth here really has nothing to do with politics: I can sum up in just a couple sentences why Net Neutrality may be one of the worst ideas in recent history. Net Neutrality advocates claim that they need internet freedom to protect them from evil ISP's controlling what they can and can't see and from making them pay extra in order to see certain parts of the web, but not others. However, every net neutrality idea proposed does absolutely nothing to solve that issue. In fact, they almost certainly make the situation worse. All that happens under net neutrality is that the control of what you can do on the internet moves from public companies who have a vested interest in making you happy and making as much accessible as possible, to the government, which has no interest in doing either. The only vested interest ANY government ever has is increasing its own power by control of information. Net neutrality is a big step in that direction. And I submit that if you think that's a good idea, then you have lost your mind. I will fight against net neutrality until my last dying breath.

I'd like to say that I agree with everything Jeff has said. I'd like to say that, but I can't. I had one of those "state of the art" Crucial SSD's. The exact one pictured, 256GB. Died on me after less than two months. Since this was my primary drive on my laptop, I couldn't wait for a replacement from Crucial, so I went to my local store and got a nice, fast 7200 500 GB Seagate drive with a nice big fat cache. And you know what? It's noisier than the SSD, but for some things it's actually quite a bit faster. Some things a bit slower. Basically a wash for me in real world use. And it cost $500 less.
