I do wonder if any1 else agrees with me on this - I would appreciate if they replied in agreement or not.. BUT..
I saw this review posted.. and I have tbh, skipped it. And as I thought about skipping it, I thought others will skip it too, from a reply pov, and here's my rationale atlest:
I can sum up the review without a read, 1x SSD, blazing speeds, low relative capacities, nice package with little content, extremely high price (£2+ a gig). To be fair this is all I/we need to know. The values can fluctuate a bit, but aslong as that last, almost the most important figure remains at around £2+ and the relative capacities are low - the interest stops there.
This is no reflection on the reviewer, as always I know the review will be outstanding. The reviews are always at a high level on OC3D.
However, until the manufacturers take their mindset away from corporations wanting these for their drive bays in their lovely raid setups, not minding paying £10k for the privilege, ur average enthusiast isn't going to be interested without some exception.
U know they're intended for these markets as they're content to stick with the lower capacities that almost mirror SCSI drives in similar raid setups (which are faster according to HDTach presets).
Now we've seen 320g drives emerging, so 250g will very soon be the distant maximum. No doubt 640g drives will follow eventually - but I can guarantee u that they won't come out until they've milked the higher prices of the lower capacities.
Soon as we atleast see £1.5 a gig. The masses will take more interest.
It's very basic for an enthusiast. They can't buy 2x GTX285 gpus - why spend the same budget on a small harddrive.
