nice capacities, but it does appear they are telling the truth about having formerly worked for the military, only the govt would pay that much lol.

while it would be nice to have 6TB in a single high speed ssd, the 24K price tag negates the gains. Especially since typical pcie ssd solutions are 1-2$/GB

Sandisk also has their Optimus max line with 4TB going for 1.50$/GB over a 12Gbps SAS interface. That would appear to be more than adequate at this point. 4 of those in raid 10 would cost the same as the 6TB drive while offering similar speeds and 8TB of effective disk space. If you don't care about redundancy you could stripe them and get the full 16TB. Again nice capacities but they really need to lower the price into the 1-2$/GB range.
