There will be tons more of these PCIe SSDs coming soon and that's a good thing. Prices will drop after a few months so unless you need one today, you can save a few bucks in a few months.

I always laugh at PC enthusiasts who get spastic over the color of the PCB be it on a mobo, SSD or GPU. It's like fan blade colors and LEDs. It's totally irrational but to some people it's a big deal. I guess they don't actually use their PC components they just take them to school for show and tell... :wtf: I think the expression "get a life" is really appropriate in these circumstances -- though no offense is intended, really.

$1,276.50 for a 960GB is actually not too bad...
but being non-bootable, may seem as a bit of an overkill for a storage (secondary drive) :D

Its great for server environment , i guess for caching and database stuff and it doesnt make sense to put an os on one of this things in terms of redundancy ? Im guessing this stuff cant be in a raid 5 array ..

The world you live in must be exceedingly bland, where every building is a concrete block painted white, everyone drives a black Ford Focus, and everyone wears a white shirt with black trousers.

I, for one, prefer simplicity and functionality but I appreciate if people brighten up the world with colours and designs.

As a modder and custom builder. I can get a bit OCD about color coordination. My customers like the look and I admit that I do as well. But some components it just doesn't matter. This is one. The cover is just fine. It also gives the option of changing the color if needed. But this is not a high visibility item. Unlike a mobo. or other items. I guess it's a good thing that we all have the freedom to express ourselves in anyway we choose to.....or not. I am glad for creative diversity and that we all don't see things the same way. As for not taking offense to a clear insult. Uh yeah.:rolleyes:

.....in the high end market its form, function and performance, Do you really want to go back to the days of beige box, green board and raindow wires ?

clocks in at 2150 MB/s read and over 1900 MB/s write..... This plus the IOPS and whether it is bootable is what matters to me. I'll leave it to the ladies of the world to complain and compare about the color of their purses.

I was thinking more on the motion graphics department, where a RAID-0 with a couple of these would allow for faster-than-real-time effect rendering. :)

Something like this tends to not be bootable, as is intended for database-driven scenarios (and/or video post-production)
But these speeds .... wow :eek:

I agree with this sentiment.

Although, if someone wants their choice of color or thinks a racing stripe sticker on the side is going to make it go faster then I don't really care. It seems rather petty and irrelevant to me but its really their issue to deal with not mine.

You are confusing externals with internals. Nobody cares how your apartment or car looks on the inside.
I like original cases, but I care less for internal components looks and colors. I don't use a transparent case, and my friends don't visit me to check my desktop. Except me, nobody cares about it. ;)

What makes you say this? What do you base that assertion on?

I mean OCZ has had their's out for years, ASUS just brought one out at CES and is available, now this. Why do you believe the flood gates are opening?

I'm guessing he is right. New SATA 3 drives are kinda useless now since they wont bring any performance improvements, so probably most of companies will focus on new PCIe drives for better competition...

Which is precisely why looks matter to some while they don't to others.
I don't buy "parts" to impress people i dont know,... I buy them to please me, my expectations and my need for "colors" :D

And yes, im OCD about colors too, and i dont have a transparent case, but i'd be dammed if
i put a nasty looking green card inside it :p

allright, if mushkin ppl are rading this:
a) make it cheap,
b) make the pcb black,
c) you can apply black/blue plastic design on top, because i have a black/blue msi board (i will never have red nor yellow, neither asus crappy gold nor gigabyte toxic green one),
d) and make it cheap!
e) check a)

Not here yet, so we have to make do with PCIe for now ;)
Righto... But its coming out.

I don't see an explosion of this niche item which will drive costs down is why I am asking... To hear what I may be missing or if that is just a gut feeling too. Not all boards can boot from pcie either (though most can at this point).

Win 8.1 will come with NVMe, which standardises PCIe SSD boot I believe.
