    Re: News - OCZ mixes HDD with SSD

    $500 (so around £400-500...) for something that may - or may not - load "that piece" of data faster for you?

    I don't get it.....if you cannot manage which drive your data is on, yet can afford this, you might as well just have a pure-SSD system.

    Don't adapters exist that already do what this offers? For well, well under the cost of this even with a bigger SSD?

    Pure SSD? A lot.

    But a 100GB SSD (about £100 or a bit under, Kingston v+ 96GB), and a 1TB HD (what, £35). Total, around £135.

    Re: News - OCZ mixes HDD with SSD

    already on scan preorder : http://www.scan.co.uk/products/100gb...write-810mb-s-

    £401.66 LOL

    Not even taking into account buying a normal 2.5" ssd, just grab this:
    http://www.scan.co.uk/products/120gb...mb-s-120k-iops

    And this
    http://www.scan.co.uk/products/1tb-s...cache-89ms-ncq

    Total: £346.92
    And you get an extra 20GB SSD to play with along with the increased performance (extra 100mb/s or something).


    Bit more hassle than the all in one but surely performs atleast on par and costs less. Id say if you could afford this im sure youd buy a larger ssd like a 256gb C300 or m4/vertex 3 corsair f3 and be done with it..

    I'm with you on that one - £400 gets you a lot of space these days - just doing some very quick figuring and I reckon Scan'll do a 256 OCX Agility and a 2TB Deskstar (both Sata3 drives) together for just less than that. Okay you lose out on the clever data migration, but I'll take the saving and just try and be organised!
    Breaking though the constraints of SATA connectivity, OCZ throws around bandwidth figures of up to 910MB/s, and 4KB random write operations per second, rated at up to 120,000 IOPS.
    Hmm, maybe to the SSD, but that disk looks suspiciously like a standard SATA drive (2.5"?) in which case they ain't gonna get anywhere near that figure. And the design on the top of the HDD looks a little like a Seagate logo.

    Interesting to see how much "normal" SSD's have fallen - you can get a 120GB unit for around the same price I paid for my 80GB in December.

    Re: News - OCZ mixes HDD with SSD

    Useful for those who insist on having their games installed on their SSD (or their C drive) with a minimum of fuss. Not so great for everyone else who can have a decent-sized and speeded 120GB SSD C drive and a secondary HDD.
    But possibly a noob-sucker-in who might read zomg 1tb ssd £400.

    thats not actually as much as id hoped by now, definetly good to see real improvement just in the last few months though - by christmas we may be at a 160 for the price of your 80.

    Hmm, I'd rather have 400GB of raid SSD goodness (4x100GB) than this contraption...

    Actually you don't even need an adaptor if you have a marvel controller - you can do it in software. But marvel controllers aren't very good IMHO, so if you don't have one, don't worry
