When it comes to milestones, this is definitely one that hits home in
our industry. Solid state drives have been around for years at this
point, and while they're hardly more affordable than they once were, and
definitely not nearly as sizable (in terms of capacity) as HDDs, people
are splurging on them. OCZ
Technology has been a major SSD player for
some time now, and the company just recently shipped their one millionth
. One million!
That's a pretty big number for a smaller company; OCZ doesn't have the
namesake or distribution channels like WD or Seagate, yet the company is
clearly getting their SSDs out to performance-minded consumers. Kudos
to OCZ for keeping a good thing going, and hopefully we're finally
getting closer to a point where SSDs are affordable for the majority,
rather than the minority.
