titleEarlier this year I had the chance to visit the OCZ offices. While being shown the offices I could sense the excitement. At that time they finally had the Indilinx crew in the office and they were very excited about how having an in house NAND Controller and firmware production would change the future of OCZ’s SSD business. The first drive that Indilinx had a hand in was the OCZ Vertex 4. Today we are going to put the Vertex 4 to the test in our new benchmark suite along with a few other SATA 3 drives to see how they perform. I hope that the same excitement that I saw in the OCZ offices will equal top notch performance from their current flagship SSD.

So,
Do the makers of the SSD's have the technology to make 1 TB SSD's and just don't to keep the prices high and their profits up? I don't have anything against profits, i'm just wondering when these are going to be big enough and cheap enough to do away with the non-ssd or disk drives (not sure of the exact name)...

A little off topic, but i love my SSD and wanna know when i can buy more mega cheap!?!?!?!?

they make them

The costs are coming down on SSD's. But we only recently saw the prices drop below a dollar a gig. Multiplying that by 1000 gets really expensive, adding on top of that there is such a small demand for them due to the price that the costs are much more than $1 per GB right now.


To give you an idea on how much the prices have changed already. This drive is three times as fast as the first SSD we tested, has twice the capacity, and costs $120 less.
