refurb, but not bad
128GB for $128 too.
EDIT: WOW. Glad I got an order in. was there, went back, and yeah, all gone!
256 is still in stock
Did you try adding to basket? It will not add it, and the refurb page doesn't list either drive now.
Crucial does this sort of thing every now and then. I ordered like 6 refurb drives back in the day, and they charged my CC, and my order disappeared. It took about a week for the charge to disappear from my CC. Quite annoying. Crucial wouldn't even let me order a new drive for any discount after that.
I guess they did sell out of them. Goes to show if they just dropped to this price point. They would rack in some serous cash.
They wouldn't be able to keep up with production in the short term if they lowered the price by that much on new drives.
OCZ RevoDrive OCZSSDPX-1RVD0080 PCI-Express x4 80G...
OCZ RevoDrive OCZSSDPX-1RVD0080 PCI-Express x4 80GB MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
This is the SDD I want.
Sequential Access - Read:
up to 540MB/s
Sequential Access - Write:
up to 450MB/s
The only one that justifies the high cost for me at least.
I don't know if $1/gig is lucrative right now for manufacturers. Even if it was, they are making more money by pricing them high and selling a comparatively smaller amount, or else they would've dropped the price long ago. SSD price is slowly coming down, and until then, they have no desire to slash prices and get into a war with other manufacturers.
Phew, $300 for 80GB. 4KB Random Write (Aligned): 70,000 IOPS is nothing to sneeze at though. But without TRIM, don't know if I would go for it.
$264.99 after mail-in rebate card
they are dropping prices even more. A little shocking if you ask me.....
Without TRIM, not worth it for me, even for $100.
OCZ RevoDrive OCZSSDPX-1RVD0120 PCI-E x4 120GB MLC...
Sandforce is less in need of then other SSDs, it has the reserve thing...
I read it's Raid that causes no TRIM. So if you raid SSD your going to lose it no matter.
Yet, OCZ is working on a work around tool for it I guess.
For pure speed....I wants lol...fuck trim
With the new Intel Rapid Storage Technology drivers that replaced the Matrix Storage Manager, I know the ICH10(R) will support TRIM through raid, though not sure if the ICH firmware/bios on board that MB manufactures update as they please, needs to be at the same version.
