The drives use an internal RAID-0 architecture (Indilinx SSD controllers plus a Silicon Image RAID controller) to boost performance -- reads, writes, and sustained writes are listed at 260MB/sec, 260MB/sec, and 220MB/sec respectively for the 250GB, 500GB, and 1TB Colossus drives.

Since itīs essentially a number of smaller drives RAIDed, it shouldnīt be that much more expensive than 4x 256 or 2x 512gb drives, should it?

We should also remember that 4x256Gb drives would also both perform much better and be cheaper(2000€). I think they just wanted to glimpse two years into the future when these become standard.

OCZ provides all of its Colossus drives with a 3-year warranty. Amazon lists the prices of the 120GB, 250GB, and 500GB, and 1TB Colossus drives at $609, $1,123, $1,770, and $3,572 respectively. ZipZoomFly has slightly more sane pricing at $438, $827, and $1,531 respectively – the retailer doesn't have pricing for the massive 1TB model.

Heh...maybe I'll mortgage a couple of these...:lol:

I still won't buy them. I can't fathom the thought of paying 400 bucks just so my WEI score would go up a couple of points?!?! :eek:

My pc is already heckuva fast, and I'm happy. I'm not knocking you guys that have bought them, and I commend you for doing so, but I don't think that this will be me--for a while. When the prices come down, and the tech is stabilized, then I may consider it.

Exactly. I don't know how many times I've bought new tech only to see prices plummet a short while later.

No more of that for me.

That said, when they do come down I will be all over it. :)

No that's for the 500Gb at ZipZoomFly... they don't even give a price for the 1Tb. The 1Tb is $3600 at Amazon. :lol:

Is it sata300 holding SSD's back?

I'd have thought you'd get a constant 300MB/s

Lame.

SSD's have been saturating sata 2 (300) for a while now , ~250+ reads , you can't reach 300 because of the protocol overhead as i understand so anything over 250 is maxing out sata 2, now we need SATA 6gbs aka SATA III.
As for OCz Colossus , personally i am not impressed to little to late to big to expensive to slow :p good writes but its Frankenstein build with internal raid ect. bleh

SSD's are clearly the future... like anything... give it a few years and the price for the performance will be worth it :)

Yea that's what makes no sense. It uses internal raid but then dumps back to one sata connection anyway. You could get way better performance by just using 6 Intel SSDs and still come out ahead in price.

SSD 1TB = $3,572


$3,572/$80 = 44 1TB hdds
