Why? Just get seperate drives since you will have to use your own controller regardless.

In essence, it would be a bunch of drives taped together. IF you add an controller to those drives, then you would have a RAID on a stick.... see the OCZ RevoDrive. However, adding RAID adds complexity and limitations. SSD themselves are RAID-like internally already.

This is the enterprise version.... for businesses.

The current 100GB Vertex 2 Pro goes for $600: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820227535
The current 120GB Vertex 2 goes for around $190: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820227590

I don't care if it's the Mohammed-Quigon-Bruce Lee edition. 500 bucks is terribad.

That's why I said I wasn't considering costs.

I was mostly just summarizing that most users would appreciate the gains more if they skipped a couple gens then jumping on every new thing that comes out.

That's why he showed you that the consumer version will be a lot cheaper.

I've been waiting for these! I hope the consumer version isn't too much of a performance drop, though. It makes me wonder if RAID is even worth it anymore without a PCIe controller... Having USB 3.0 (assuming it is being used) and SATA 6.0 all on the same bandwidth, as is the case with many motherboards, has to bottleneck something.

What's the caveat mentioned? I missed it.

My company pays $10K for 1TB of HDD storage.... per year.

Enterprise != Consumer.

Jesus. That's... What the hell kind of drive is 10K for a TB? Is it made of gold and children's tears?!

These are enterprise level (Pro) drives. Consumer level will be cheaper.

Yeah, read the article.
