Of course thay are expensive not to mention very unreliable. I had a lot of hassle even with verbatim dvds and had to reburn some of them for a second time. that adds to the overall cost of course. Now how much more expensive it gets when you have to reburn BD-R media? And how much more exensive...
He's actually right its easy to buy 2 1.5TB drives for 200Euro and mirror them using software rather than raid. I have such setup and it works fine. if one craps out on me I'll buy another one. How long will it take to reburn another of those? :)
Also consider this 10euro a piece for 50GB...
Guys you all forgot about tape drives
LTO-4 standard can store 1600GB in 2:1 ratio (uncompressed 800GB) and LTO-5 will have twice as much. The transfer speed is around 120MB/s including on the fly compression.
And each cost about 25Euro.
I really see no point in this tech.
I'm using 4870x2 and never had any problems with the drivers. And supposedly X2 cards are most troublesome :)
Only overheating problems during summer :P so I had to manually speed up fan to 70%
I'm now on 10.7
It's not entirely true. From what you wrote it only has fastest read speeds.
SanDisk Extreme III SDHC Class 10 has max 30MB/s read write speeds.
I have one of those babies in my EOS 550D and it really is blazing fast :)
I seriously wonder why people consider it a bad move.
For us enthusiasts it doesn't really matter as sticker doesn't tell us much anyway. It's a written system specs that we are looking for. Sellers also won't be confused as well as they also follow written system specs.
As for regular joe no...
You're right... my bad
But still second part of the post still stands :) especially since as w1zzard mentioned it includes ddr3 controllers.
panic - stock price fall to 5$
nvidia goes into settlement
buy as hell
Reap the profit
i wouldn't be worried about this issue if it concerns older products. It only bans import of those. If suppliers in states have a healthy supply they will be still able to sell them.
The whole diffrent story is if that claim covers some new products as well like fermi then they that...
The table is still not right.
It shows 6GB takes 20 sec and 25GB 70 sec WTF?
Also what is the point of showing USB 3.0 max speed of around 400MB/s while this drive can only do roughly 200MB/s
You've got to love PR guys :)
I have two 1.5TB usb 2.0 models and must say they are great buy. In europe they are the cheapest external drives avilable and what's funny is that they are even cheaper than bare 1.5TB drive plus case :)
And they look good :)
