80MB is actually roughly on par with most mechanical drives out there. Only 10k spindle speed Raptors or the last two years or so of large-capacity 3.5" drives are really all that much faster. You'll have to copy a shitload of files EVERY DAY for 80MB/s to be any sort of a hindrance. The difference under any reasonable situation is insignificant, especially when the G2 outclasses pretty much everything else in every performance metric that actually counts, and usually does so HUGLY. You'd have to be an idiot to pick another SSD for its faster sequential write speed over a G2 when the really important factor is random accesses of small I/O sizes - where the G2 shines.
