    I mean... why? I wonder how many people have actually bought this? You could just buy afew SSD's and Raid them into 1TB. Probably cost less...

    Stuff at this price is just daft.

    Can anyone find any reviews on this? or even a Raid0 of this?

    Hold on to your butts:

    [​IMG]

    While the OCZ Colossus Series is just a pair of their drives in RAID-0, that is eight ioDrives :D

    With it's cover on, will look good next to a pair of 5970's...

    That's ONE TERABYTE SSD.

    also one of the FASTEST SSD that's available on the market today.

    it's make sense if the price will be more expensive than single High End gaming PC.

    I like the reviews. Not because they are as witty as I'm sure the writers thought they were, but because they are there.
