  • Solid state harddrives finally getting close to affordable

    Thought I would pass this one since I know a lot of other folks are looking forwards to getting a SSD.

    60GB OCZ Core V2 SSD Makes an Appearance Online for $239 After Rebate

    OCZ's Core Series V2 SSDs feature read speeds of 170MB/sec and write speeds of 98MB/sec. The 2.5" drives -- which are aimed primarily as replacement for notebook hard drives -- are available in capacities of 30GB, 60GB, 120GB, and 250GB.

    After a couple of weeks of waiting, at least one member of the new Core Series V2 family is available online: the 60GB model. Newegg lists the OCZSSD2-2C60G for $299 -- a $60 manufacturer's rebate drops the price down to a more palatable $239.
    That is starting to get close to Raptor pricing.

    I've been contemplating on whether or not I want to dish out the money for a solid state HD, instead of a Raptor. I guess I'll wait until the end of the year and see what that brings, but this makes it very tempting...

    I didn't join a squad once and this guy named Nardini took me into the back room and beat me with a sock of oranges.

        If they were remotely affordable, I would have a quad (or at least a pair) of 2.5" 15K SAS drives.

        But in the meantime, yeah, I live a block from a pretty "bleeding-edge" computer store, and they've been selling a 32GB 2.5" SATA2 SSD for $199.95l roughly a comparitive cost to what you listed.

        SSD drive pricing though... is going down FAST.

          Goodness, that's still $1 a GB after shipping! :o

          It won't become affordable for at least another year at this rate.
