6GB - to a DVD in 20 seconds?
16GB - to a flash drive in 53 seconds?!?!
25GB - to a Blu-Ray in 70 seconds?!?! ?

And how the FFK does USB even connect to YouTube at all?

Symwave - Please GTFO the internet if you're not even going to BOTHER...

Even if these are READ values, they seem vastly implausible.

And for OCZ : Lying and/or Fraud are poor ways to promote a product. There are ppl on this earth who may consider intentionally including BS information on a press release to constitute both, and the NON-BS'ness of that chart is questionable at best.

That's just the way I see it...

whats wrong? there all correct values.... to transfer a 500mb video from you tube would only take 1.6 seconds with a 10 Gbps connection.


there putting the size into context for all those who dont know how big 1gb really is.

70 seconds to transfer 25gb, the size of a blu ray disk... not how long it would take to read 25gb from a blu ray disk.


and as for the speed if thats what your getting at.

260mbps read speed is the average maximum speed for most upper end SSDs

So you have a DVD drive that does 300Meg /Second?

And a 16Gig flash drive that does 301Meg / Second?

And a Blu-Ray drive that does 357Meg / Second?

did you even read what i said???

its putting the size into context......


a standard bluray disk is 25GB..... it takes 70 seconds to move 25 GB of data.

it does not say it can read a bluray disk at 357mbps it says it can move 25 GB of data in 70 seconds !

its describing to people how fast it is at moving 1GB compared to another device.


a bluray disk can transfer at 25mbps. ( not a real correct value just a guess/estimate)
this SSD can transfer at 260mbps.

now do you see what there getting at?

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 :)

The point being you won't get anything faster then what your PC can deliver. If you are downloading a file directly to this unit you are limited to your download speed or how fast your HD can transfer data if it's slower then what they rate their product.

Seems to be a lot of this "putting size into context" stuff going around lately. It certainly could be explained a little better. Sure they're trying to dumb it down for the average moron who might not understand how big 25GB is but that same average moron is the guy who will think if he buys this thing he will magically transfer a blu-ray movie from the disk to the HD in 70 seconds! So it actually ends up being us geeks who really understand it. They should put up the raw numbers and then give some well explained examples of what those numbers could be.
