    Whilst I'm not a big fan of OCZ, they're still pretty decent and add some good competition to the market place.
    Well done OCZ :toast:

    Well, they are one of the driving forces behind SSD adoption. The more ssds they ship, the faster they pay down the R&D costs. Then we might get some decent capacity /per $.

    PS So what's the big deal with OCZ SSD? I know some people still on Vertex I indilinx, happy as a pig in poop. Others that hate the same drives. Same for theit sandforce drives.
    Is it the controllers they use, or bad memory? Or is it just people killing their drives with benching and bad flashes?

    So that means they have at least made $200million give or take a lil if they sold 1million at $200.(if my math is right) Some of their ssd's cost more and some less but that's a lot of money.

    yea but that is only looking at SSDs the SSDs are making OCZ money its why they killed off there Memory division it was losing money, theyve removed the failing parts of there company

    they closed there memory division shut down Hypersonic there boutique PC manufacturer, and focused on PC Power & Cooling + SSDs overall there making a profit where as before about a year ago or so they were not.

    Mostly enthusiasts for now, that's why the adoption rate is so slow. We are paying the early adopter tax. They won't really take off until they get cheaper.

    Its true though. Go look at the reviews for OCZ SSD's. Just about all of them mention that the drive has failed or arrived doa in a short amount of time.
