We all remember Vertex don't we
Remember? Still kicking with it. Using the 60GB SSD as a cache drive for my 2TB WD via Intel RST, and works well.
I'm quietly watching these prices over the years, with no real imminent excuse to upgrade, I can't help but wonder where prices and storage tech will be in a couple more years.
OCZ is now owned by Toshiba, and because of that OCZ has taken a huge leap forward in.. reliability. When you buy a OCZ SSD now it will actually be an SSD and not guaranteed failure with a stupid price tag.
all im saying is, never forget vertex
i certainly wont forget how toshiba bought the name out and then proceeded to not honor any warranty on ocz SSD products
i get it, its hardly their fault. but, i wont 'reward' a company like that by purchasing any future products
Yep, mine are still working very nicely

Sorry, it's OCZ again
Looking to build a new RAID 6 array, I've used 840 Evo's in RAID 10 in the past and haven't been happy with the failure rate, what's recommended in the world of more reliable SSD's? 850 Pro?
about a month ago got a sandisk ultra 2 1tb for 270 from amazon .. pity its not that price everyday ... yesterday bought a evo850 500gb for 180.
Any decent deals going on 500gb ssds? <$200 for a 850 evo by any chance ?
If you don't mind ocz....

Thanks mate but I had a look at the bench marks on that thing and
Happy for anything from Samsung, Intel, Sandisk, Crucial @ the 500gb range.... my last 500gb was picked up off ebay when they had than $100 voucher deal going....
How low can they go?
OCZ Trion 240GB SSD $85
OCZ Trion 480GB SSD $149
Free Delivery @ PLE
I bought a 1tb samsung 850 evo for $390 from futu online with the recent 20% off promo.. I can finally ditch my 4x250gb raid0 array..
with rumours of a ssd price drop later this year im holding out for samsung/sandisk 1tb under $300
"Crucial BX100 250GB SSD USD $69.77 (~AUD $98) Delivered @ Amazon"
I think the growing popularity of the much faster m.2 pcie ssd will fasten the price drop of SATA SSD.
I just saw that Crucial BX100 deal, so temping....
seems the crucial deal is back to $107ish
While that might be true, most m.2 is still a sata connector so not faster vs the 2.5" drives.
There is also the issue with market size. Not many people have a m.2 slot, but everyone has a sata slot of some kind.
As such, I still expect sata to be the main stream for a good few years yet. mSata on the other hand I think is already on it's last legs. No mass market and limited sellers offering it.
The only connection that is doing worse is the card based SSD units as they are being taken over by the m.2 adapter market.
