1TB SSD

I was not aware they have 1TB SSD »www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a···20227797 but the price is high.

Yeah, some of the earlier 1TB SSD units were actually using RAID internally probably due to how the controller addressed the NAND. There are limitations and controllers need to improve to help get better performance out of higher capacity units.

The price is also another issues as you pointed out but they are dropping.

I bought a 500GB Samsung 840 for ~$330 not too long ago and a free copy of FarCry 3. I'd rather have two of those at ~$660 then one of those 1TB units in the ~$2500 range.

BUT.... did you read the reviews?

Pros: As soon as I plugged this in, the walls started to melt and Jåsus floated down from the ceiling on a Raptor made out of Weed and started playing Dubstep with his Eyebrows.

Did that happen when you hooked up your Samsung?!:)

Beware of OCZ drives. Many of them have early and frequent failure. I bought a Kingston drive over a year ago and have been happy with it. I am thinking of picking up a 2nd just to keep my games on. 1 SSD for OS, 1 SSD for games, 1 for general file storage.

Speaking from anecdotal, personal experience is fine. If you want to diss an entire company, then beware, you need to back that crap up.

For instance, it is known that the Agility drives appear, from numerous anecdotal viewpoints and postings across the PC hardware community on the web, reliability issues. These are asynchronous drives and a step down in quality from the Vertex and Vector series.

Since at least the Vertex 1 and 2 days, I have not heard of reliability issues with the Vertex 3 and 4, and the Vector series is one of the best models you can buy, with sustained high performance, thanks to the in-house Indilinx controller it was paired with.

So don't just thread-crap and say "Company X sucks" without proof.

Have you personally ever owned, or professionally ever worked on, OCZ drives? Or are you just repeating what you have heard?

I have OCZ 55GB SSD. Hope it does not fail on me any time soon.
Based on reviwes »www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a···20227550 you maybe right.

And the fear-mongering starts. That's why speculative crap should be limited to the Watercooler. If you have factual input to provide here, provide it. Otherwise don't air unsubstantiated opinions.

I had a bad Western Digital Black Caviar ship to me that I had to RMA back. That doesn't mean I'm going to go around now telling people to beware of shitty WD drives. I would recommend a Caviar Black any day.

So far my Vertex 4 has performed flawless for 7 months now. Even if it took a crap tomorrow, so what. It's warrantied.

Do some people get bad products every now and then, sure. It can happen with any electronic device.

Is this another anti-OCZ post because of a quick check of their support forums? Did you read it on the "internet"? I agree with Krisnatharok See Profile. I'm not from Missouri - but - "Show Me". As far as the 1TB drives - google Micron M500. They'll be sub $600.00 (US). I couldn't find them for sale yet, but I'll be eye-ballin' them for purchase.

OCZ Agailty 360GB (1x)
OCZ Vertex 2 120GB (1x)
OCZ Vertex Plus 240GB (2x)
OCZ Octane 128GB (1x)
Crucial M4 256GB (1x)
Intel 330 240GB (1x)
Samsung 840 500GB (1x)

SanDisk 64GB mSATA (OEM from Asus Eee Slate EP121 Core i5 Tablet PC)

I think that's it but I may be missing one or two.

Anyway, I would like to point out that not one SSD has had any sign of a malfunction.
