sweet, are solid state drives not just a bunch of memory chips so it would only be expected to see them get in the game.
hmm im in the market for a ssd, so depending on price and benchmarks, i might pick one up.
More competition is always a good thing. Drop those prices!!
I bought an OCZ vertex 2 not to long ago and have been super happy with it. I just wish the prices would drop some! I need a bigger hard drive. 60gb just isn't cutting it : /
I can't wait for the prices to drop on ssd's so I can justify purchasing a couple to my wife. (She is incharge of any finacial decisions, lol )
i7 920 @ 3.8 gb, 12 gig g.skill PC3 12800 12GB (2GB x 6) CL 6-8-6-20-2N, 4 x Wd Black 640gig hd in raid 10 (storage), 2 OCZ vertex2 60gb raid 0 (boot), 2 Sapphire HD6850, Gigabyte X58A-UD5 mb, Silverstone SST-STF85F psu, cooled by corsair h50, and lots of fans in an Antec P160W case.
The prices have been dropping slowly and minimally for a while. I think this year is really going to start seeing larger changes though. People like Phoenix are actually great to see in this market. The more players the better for us. Of course OCZ and Intel are dropping new things now, so we should expect something from all the other large players by summer I would think. That means there will be price wars this summer or early fall, then when the holiday season starts we will see more fluctuation. These things will see the price level change significantly I would think this year. The larger the market in players and purchases grows the more standard the medium becomes.
There are actually some OK deals right now. I think it will be bigger reduction's price wise in the next few months though.
