If you're really wanting much better bang for your buck, instead of spending ~ $2,420 at Amazon for a single 1-TB SATA-III SSD, you should instead spend $200 more in order to get 1.3 TB of usable space via six (6) Corsair Force GT SATA-III 240GB SSD's (or similar) attached to an LSI 9265-8i MegaRaid Controller with FastPath and a BBU; all for ~ $2,640.

You'll get more usable storage space, and MUCH BETTER PERFORMANCE, as evidenced here:

Obviously not cheap by any means, but hey, if your going to spend ~$2,420 anyway . . .

Just my two-cents worth.

$3.25 / GB for that?

I noticed some SSD's at Newegg just broke below the Magical $1 / GB number everyone's been waiting for...

yawn

I remember when hard drives were more expensive than that...

I also remember hard drive prices dropping pretty quickly. SSD prices on the other hand, are dropping but at a nickel and dime rate not at a multi dollar rate as hard drives did. Not enough end users are adopting SSD's it seems.

As do I. I also remember the dark days where a 4 GB HDD was doing well, and a terabyte desktop hard drive couldn't be had. I still have a few of my old PATA/33 4 gig drives. Shoot, I remember the days of having to store data on magnetic cassettes; I still have the old C64 tape drive too.

IMO the $1/GB pricing still sucks, let's get to the pre-flood HDD price/gb pricing. Someday these SSDs will come in terabyte capacity for under 100 bucks. If only that day were today.

i wonder what kind of warranty they are offering with this. i know that right now plextor is the only ssd manufacturer that is sporting a 5yr warranty on their ssd's. its prob going to be the standard 3 yr warranty.

intel has been offering a 5 year warranty since just after the release of their new ssd's last year. Right now Intel's 320. 330, and 520 series drives all carry a 5 year warranty.

your right. intel has a 5yr warranty. thats what happens when you blink in the technology game:P

Just bought a crucial 256gb SSD for $200 and a 1TB velociraptor for $300. $500 total vs over 3 grand. I will wait till about 2019 for a 1TB SSD.

For that price, I'll take ten!

Eyach...... the other things I could put into a machine at those price levels makes the speed boost honestly seem moot.
