Wonder how many people will be buying 2 and RAID 0'ing them? Not many me thinks.

No, sir, no.

People ask why I don't use SSD's - This is why.

I do not fancy a.. 27500 bill for making everything, for all intents and purposes "A bit" faster.

But if he's talking about 14TB worth of 'average BT user data' storage it's unlikely moving from mechanical drives to SSDs will make accessing said data anything more than 'A bit' faster. But of course it all depends on the gear and what use.

If he's streaming 1080p videos then he'll be fine with mechanicals as it's the network that's the issue.

If he's hosting a 5TB SQL Server database on local storage then those SSDs will suit the job nicely.

Horses for courses.

Edit: I currently have a 120GB SSD and a 1TB spinner in my MBP, I'd love to rip them both out and install a couple of these. But not at that cost...

I've seen SSDs from 1 or 2 years ago with this capacity and are multiple times faster for a more competitive price. These SSDs are PCI-e 16x based, so it is unlikely anyone would want to use something like that in their gaming computer (because that extra slot could be better used for another GPU) but I expect better from OCZ.

The weird thing is, the pricing doesn't seem to scale well. It's about 15x more money for less than 10x more space.

Costs more to put vastly more data into the same space. The fact it exists alone means that they should eventually become affordable, give it 2-5 years and providing there isn't a better alternative beating out SSD's these will become commonplace in these sizes

Likely because it wasn't trivial to shove that much capacity into a 2.5" drive. Yes, there have been other 1TB SSDs, as the article itself points out, but this is the first 2.5". You want bleeding edge, you'll always pay a premium.

Personally, I'd appreciate a move to PCIe SSDs for consumer-level hardware. PCIe 3.0 supports a data rate of 15.8 GB/s on a x16 link. Make it bootable, TRIM support behind the hardware RAID on the card - hell yes. Granted, currently they don't typically use a full x16; x4 is more common, iirc. I'd give up 16 lanes for that, not that I'll be able to afford it until it comes down to $100
