Got some Rockwell to jam with?
Haha, I would start copyrighting your ideas.
I'm guessing the 1TB version will cost as much as my car.
"will ship in sizes of 128GB, 256GB, 512GB and 1TB for prices of $300, $650, $1200 and $2200, respectively"
Taken from the original posting of these drives coming down the pipeline.
this is perfect , i was hoping to see a 500gb - 1TB SSD soon enough , had my share already with bad sector harddisks external HDD's lost , time to go SSD , by the way the only drawback of SSD's was until now the low life cycle , anyway OCZ has as used to it's 1500000 hours MTBF (mean time before failure) so i guess 170 years is more than im gonna live! ill probably wait half a year until the 1gb colossus price goes down, in the meantime OCZ 256gb Vertex is running my OS like the roadrunner in fast forward !
Four of them in a RAID configuration please,.... and I want it yesterday!
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
