Coming to a server near you soon?

Nice speeds, the price still lets them down though

Great review Jim. I'm glad to see that the stutter that plagued previous SSDs has been eradicated. The price is still a little high, but it's good to see OCZ progressing with their SSD line-up.

Good review mate.

Great performance but surely the cost needs to come down and the capacity up for them to become viable for the mainstream.

Fantastic to see them coming along like this. However, prices let me down hugely and therefore I won't be getting one for at least another year. I wish the prices would come down faster and become more main stream like 500GB HDDs

8!? Wow, serious speeds there. I reckon he is going to be topping 1750MB/s read/write speeds! Imagine the boot/load times! *Drools....*

I hope he's put that on a PCI-e controller? :s I don't think the average northbridge is able of keeping up with that.

SouthBridge is the one you're after mate, the NB controlls other things

He would be stupid to run it off an onboard RAID controller! As Monkey said, I hope it is on a dedicated RAID card!
