Lucas123 writes "OCZ today released a new line of 2.5-in solid state drives that have up to 1TB of capacity. The new Octane SSD line is based on Indilix's new Everest flash controller, which allows it to reduce boot-up times by half over previous SSD models. The new SSD line is also selling for $1.10 to $1.30 per gigabyte of capacity, meaning you can buy the 128GB for about $166."

    SSDs aren't meant/ready as a mass storage solution. They are a performance product aimed at system drives and portable devices -- situations where replacing them isn't a big deal data wise.

    Also. if you're storing data on one one drive you're an idiot no matter what kind of drive you are using.

If a 6600 used paper tape instead of core memory, it would use up tape at about 30 miles/second. -- Grishman, Assembly Language Programming
