Ouch! £2K for 1TB hurts!

SSD needs to drop £/GB. £1/GB would be okay with me although I'd only get 256gb at that price.

This is for very wealthy people!

It's worse than that I think. It's well in excess of £2/G.

I don't think 'cost effectiveness' even deserves to be mentioned.

I'm thinking that this is more a PR stunt than an actual "look here, buy this" product release. I mean seriously, aside from maybe businesses that demand fast storage at any cost (but can get it via RAID SAS drives), I cant see the average punter even considering this...especially at the moment.

Yeah, this isn't going to sell.

I'm getting a small boot SSD (80gb) and will just use raptors until SSD's cost ~£1/GB

Any1 done a serious guide as to which ssds are good for what ?

£/write/read/capacity/make

Seen a few thrown together that detail 3 or so makers. Goto a place like NewEgg and there's about a dozen makers. None I've seen have SuperTalent, who I'd expect to have a fair offering. Kingston don't appear in review comparisons, but are in stores. Samsung apparently do one of the best controllers, but Intel/OCZ/some1 else are in the limelight.

This cos of reviewers working off donated ssds ? Surely a store could pitch in.

Haha. Thanks Pyr0

Somehow I didn't think they'd get the 1TB beast to review
