    I found this http://www.anandtech.com/show/3756/2...ake-on-intel/1 but, that is all.

    I'm still undecided on buying an SSD. The Crucial C300 64GB looks a good bet.

    thanks for that although i read that one already, i want an ssd but not willing to spend alot im gonna buy the oynx to see how ssd are like

    then in 2011 prices should fall dramatically for ssd and competition will increase with 25nm nand chips and thats when i might drop bigger money on an ssd

    Re: OCZ 32gb oynx ssd

    TBH, I would not buy that drive because the figures do not look that good " up to 125MB/s Read" My Samsung HDD's do that and a bit more.

    If you wait a bit until the new drives come out the prices for the older tech will drop (hopefully).

    the older tech is more expensive to manufacture than the new tech (in the case of ssd), u dont really measure performance of an ssd on the speeds its rated at

    usually you look at random reads/writes and access times which would always destroy an hdd something that review tend to provide

    do u have ur samsungs at raid 0?

    All it shows me is that the OCZ Onyx 32GB is a mere 19MB/s faster on sequential reading and slower on sequential writing than a single Samsung F3. Which IMHO is nothing impressive at all.

    OK, The random read/writes are better than a standard HDD but, I would want to buy something with better figures for that £/GB figure. You might as well pay a bit more and get the Crucial C300 64GB.

    At the end of the day, You pay your money - you take your choice.

    Re: OCZ 32gb oynx ssd

    Sequential read / write isn't the point of an SSD though, it's the negligible access times and relatively high random read & write performance that make a computer feel more generally responsive. And even the cheapest SSD will leave a mechnical HD in its dust as far as random performance goes. You appear to be completely missing the point of an SSD, frankly.

    Proably worth the 2 week wait IMO. 30gb will likely feel quite cramped anyway.

    30GB is too small for a main desktop machine, its fine in my Laptop and media centre which have very light installs but you really want more for your main machine.
