OCZ PCIe 1TB SSD Drive

Anyone using one? Just came across this. I find it very interesting. A PCIe SSD drive. It plugs directly into your PCIe slot. SATA is no longer needed.

Old news. They already had their revo-drive. Waste of a PCIe slot, if you ask me.

I see people talking about them and I think that it is a cool idea if you have enough slots or if they have a way to multiplex. I'm just not ready to trust SSD quite yet. (and I don't have enough slots.)

Plus they only work on PC. Better off using a Sata3 version, a lot cheaper as well. They're probably the future though. No more Sata only PCIe?

Why do you consider them a waste of a PCIe slot? If the slot is available and the funds too, who wouldn't want a 2 TB disk with 1400 MB/s of read and write speed? If I win the lottery I would certainly give it a try! :-D

Because all my PCIe slots are full... heh
No serious, for HD video they make sense, if you have slots available. For all other uses, you rarely need it and can do the same thing with a SATA 6GB SSD. Cheaper, more compact, easier to transfer if needed.

Who is talking about need? ;-) But still, these cards are significantly faster than SATA SSDs so for anyone that needs/wants the speed I don't think anything beats it.

I think it would make a great boot disk. :-D Add another one for work storage and
