Default OCZ

If OCZ does to the storage market as it did to the memory that we all enjoy today. WOW That one SSD drive that smokes my 4X74G RAID 0 raptors with no heat or noise, Damn I want a couple of thoughs setup in RAID config. Insta-load is what they should call them. To get the same performance only a year ago would cost you a small car. That OCZ for may this kind of hardware avalable to the everyone.

I had a hard time trying to understand what he meant to say -.-

What have OCZ done to the ram market? Increased DOA rates?

Anyway, I'dd sure like to have 2 of these... I thought 2Xnm nand would lower the price a lil more on release though..
