    He is one of the reasons to be very careful not to put a lot of faith in Neweggs reviews, Im sure he thought he was being funny but to give something like that 1 egg and to say his tech level was high shows how goofy so many reviews there are..There is no way a goofball like that had that Hdd

    Well, even though the price is batshit insane, I am happy to see that a drive so large even exists, meaning that SSD drives are catching up with HDD drives as far as capacity goes... just waiting for the price to drop now...

    All of you keep forgetting about server consolidation VM and how many users can you fit onto a single system.


    I don't want to do the math again ,but imagein 100 people earning $20 per hour and this drive saving them 5 minutes per day. How much more efficient will the company be?

    *May or may not expand out the RAIDDrive series. There's numerous configurations available, RAID-0, RAID-5, battery or not.

    Using manufacturer supplied numbers. Need to compile a list of reviews for actual performance (especially in cases such as the RAIDDrive GS).

    That OCZ 1tb SSD looks like a tasty 3.5inch brownie for the starving kids of haiti dosnt it?
    Lets help out the starving kids around the world and start shipping OCZ 1tb SSD's for supplements :).

    For the moment it's just the avg price from Google Product search, taken at the time of generation (a few minutes ago).

    I'll get one when they drop the price to 10 cents per GB.

    Excellent drive, though.

    Thats crazy. I thought spending $2k on a pc build was about right...I'm sure there are people out there that will buy this though. People with money to burn.

    I haven't switched over to SSD yet because I'm waiting for an acceptable size at a fair price. Acceptable size for me would be 300GB and a fair price would be $300. I figure I'll be waiting for a long time.

    /edit I think those reviews were jokes. I'm sure if someone really bought it they would write a glowing review to justify their money spent.

    I take all reviews, neweggs, and legit editorial reviews with a grain of salt. What I prefer is seeing the item in question in a Vs review with other parts of the same tech.

    Agreed WhiteNoise, the only time I ever use SSDs is for customer builds. Some people want that snappy feel that you only get with low access time. For my personal rigs I never bother, because it's raw transfer rate speed I need, to cut down the time it takes to do things that take hours, not seconds.

    Imagine the capacity and transfer rate of a HDD RAID array you could set up for that price.

    look at the review on this.....

    Tech Level: high - Ownership: less than 1 day
    Pros: Awesome fast. Fastest I have ever seen in my life!!
    Cons: My pc just shook a little at first then a white hole formed in front of it and then my pc was gone. I think my new SSD opened a worm-hole and took my pc to who knows where!
    Other Thoughts: Fast but now I have no pc. One egg given because I have to buy a new pc now. :(


    Manufacturer Response:Hello, these reviews allow customers to post their experiences with a product. You may own this drive, but we appreciatewould an actual review. We highly doubt that your PC vanished because of this product.


    gota love that manufacturer response, made me lmao


    EDIT: sorry just saw someone beat me to posting that..

    That looks like serious storage. It's got enough caps and heatsinks to resemble a power supply!
