More choice can generally only be a good thing. I've always liked Zalman's products too so I hope these live up to their name.
Wow, that's a crazy difference!
32GB might be a bit cramped but 64GB is enought for most peoples OS and all their apps. It's a waste to fill SSDs with games as they load fast enough off standard drives anyway.
I really hate this SSD situation.
Really, the only thing that matters with these is the controller. Who cares if it's OCZ or Zalman or whatever if they have the same controller. This isn't news, can't you already buy drives EXACTLY like these? Probably for less?
I'm not that interested in the number of brands of SSD's (OCZ, Corsair etc) . I'm more interested in the number of different drive controller manufacturers and the chips they produce (Indilinx, Sandforce, Intel, JMicron etc).
SSD's seem to be heading the way of graphics cards where they're almost all the same under that casing with a different stick on top.
So many SSD articles. Still can't afford one.
It is absolutely bonkers. All Sand Force SSDs are exactly the same. Prices are around the same level. It doesn't matter if only OCZ releasing new products or 5000 other companies join in. Prices won't go down as long as there is nothing new on the horizon (like better controllers for SSDs or HDR technology).
Who cares what sticker is on top? OCZ, Zalman, Kingston... Iranian Jihad Corp or Bahamas Computing Institute.
+1 for both!
I know that's true in theory, but has real world performance born that out? A lot of things are the same on paper, but some manufacturers have a special ability to screw them up in implementation.
If competition brings the prices down, then im all for it.
