I would like them to explain them that actual feature

lower total cost of ownership versus HDD

I'm pretty sure they mean the cost of that pays itself in the next years!

it's cost 39 x a HD , so lets say a HD is good for 5 years x 39...... I will be death.

Its not even really PCIe SSD either. Its multiple SSD's on a RAID card. Pretty lame IMO.

Is that for certain? Wouldn't surprise me, but I've never seen confirmation/denial either way, although I believe I saw Ryder state that there's no JMicron inside.

Wonder if this is bootable yet. That seems to be an issue with most PCI-E SSD packs right now.
