Nice. Unfortunately they're going to price it at far more than a new high-end computer.

...I'd like to "win" one or something.

Nice! By the time I come back to the US, around April 2012 these bad boys should be a lot cheaper. :)

And maybe it will hit 2TB by then. That's the sweet sport for me. ;)

Depending on the pricing, the 256GB one looks like a sweet spot for me.

Imagine putting a SSD in a laptop? I'm tempting to try it on my very own.

I have an SSD from OCZ, and it failed after just about 6 months.  I've heard from other friends as well that they have had lots of issues with quality with OCZ SSDs - apparently OCZ uses/used lower-quality memory in their SSDs compared with Intel.  If I am off-target here, anyone feel free to hop in and correct me - I am just relaying my own personal experience and what I've heard.

I'm sending my drive back this week, and have heard OCZ is actually very good about replacing them quickly.  However, having to replace my C: drive every six months isn't exactly something I'm looking forward to, so I hope the next one holds out better.

Yeah, check that off as a fluke and try again. As with the previous reply, I too am heavy on the OCZ SSD's and all are still running just fine. The eldist is a 60G Summit which was rumoured to be plagued due to the controller (and the mantra repeated by non-users) and it's never had a hiccup. The dualing up of the conroller in that model is probably why.

We're all SSD here besides the server, all are OCZ of some sort, and all have been trouble free. Six in home, countless others in outside builds; no failures or flaws.

For what it's worth, I have three OCZ SSDs and one Corsair (2 years and 1 year old, respectively), and haven't had problems with any of them.  Anecdotes of hardware failure aren't really reliable, because they don't reflect the number of units in the field.  If there are 10x the number of OCZ units in the public sector, and they have half the failure rate of Intels, you still hear about it 5x as often.

Thanks to both of you.  Makes me feel better about my investement, and less apprehensive about going to all the trouble of slapping the replacement back into my machine.  I'll update this again once I've received my replacement from OCZ.

Price is probably gonna be high to match it.
Would render the current SSD market obsolete.

Tech just keeps getting better and better, wish the economy would do the same.

I want one, but I hear my conscience telling me maybe in 5 years lol.

oh and in the last paragraph, "Expect models ranging from 128MB to 1TB..."

are they realling releasing one that small?

Good writeup.

Think you misread that, it says 128gigs to 1tb

Brad Chacos

Nah, he was right. Originally, there was a typo that said 128MB.
