OCZ Endeavors to Bring Affordable SSDs

Digitimes reports that at aside from it’s new 3.5-inch Colossus SSD, OCZ is also exhibiting a lineup of what is says competitively priced SSDs in Taipei. Among these is the company’s Vertex series (250 MB/s read and 180 MB/s write), now costing about US$3.42/GB, along with its new Summit SSD (220 MB/s read/write, 128MB onboard cache) aimed at high-end gaming, professional desktops and notebooks, and small-scale server PCs.

According to Fudzilla OCZ also quietly updated its site yesterday to include a new series which will apparently be a performance part for the mainstream segment of the market in 30 GB, 60 GB and 120 GB capacities. No pricing yet but the affordability of the line is going to be its big selling point.

How many of you currently own an SSD and how much did you pay for it? Let us know!

    I haven't bothered to upgrade to SSD's just yet on my home PC's. They are still slightly too expensive in my opinion and I am too lazy to reinstall all my operating systems onto new disks. I will probably include them in my next new build sometime next year.

    Still waiting for prices to drop.

    To Hammeh: You know You dont need to reinstall OS. Just make complete hdd(partition) image and restore on new hdd.

    I'm getting a fast 60GB one from Samsung during the summer. Hopefully prices will be a little lower by then, even if by £10.
