Hmmm.... seems pretty cheap, compared to other SSDs in that speed league.
If it is reliable, itīs a steal for the money.
But editing from your boot drive? Sure it will work, but do you really want that?
On the other hand, if you are editing highly compressed codecs like Prores, AVCHD, DVCProHD and the like, you donīt need that much speed - even with more than one stream.
If you edit uncompressed, you need more more storage space - so having a SSD as a drive for editing seems like an odd choice in my book.
