    OCZ is letting press know that prices for most of their consumer SSDs have dropped by up-to 30%, in an attempt to be even more competitive with parties Samsung and Micron. As a result, re-sellers are...

    Not sure if it's a good deal when we're talking about OCZ in the SSD departement.

    Toshiba owns it now and to be honest it looks like things improved, a lot.

    While it does make them more attractive, Samsung's reliability and innovation is worth the price premium for myself.

    Had the OCZ Vertex 2 XT, it ran about 27 months, then died. Now I own two 120GB 840Evos as well as a Cruicial M4 256GB. As long as they run, you can't complain about anything tbh. Still running all those at Sata 3GB/s, so there's hardly any real difference :D

    This must be why ocz ssd aren't sold anymore in my country. They are too cheap. And besides that my country is becoming a tourist/dumb people only country. Sad.

    This is a trifle off-topic, but Crucial are offering 1Tb SSD's at a price which tempts even a tight-fist like myself.
    Anyone have experience of Crucial's SSD's at this sort of size?

    I just ordered an EVO 250gb to replace my Mushkin Chronos 120 since games are all 20gb plus it seems these days and I keep running out of space.

    Managed to price match it and got it for $140CND! Pretty happy with that ;)

    I was tossing up between a couple of 1TB Samsung EVO 840s and 1TB Crucial M550s. The Samsung drive has better random read performance but the Crucial drive does better at random writes. The Samsung still wins out because it is 12% less in my country. $632.60(NZD) vs $718.66(NZD).

    The low price has of course nothing to do with these companies wanting to deplete inventories ahead of incoming NVMe drives :rolleyes:

    Perfectly happy with my 256GB 840PRO.

    My next SSD will definitely be PCIe based, though.

    My thoughts exactly, I had ssd's from Samsung, Crucial and OCZ the only drives that didn't fail where the Samsungs, the OCZ failed within 3 months and the Crucial M4 lasted about a year before it developed issues, maybe it's just bad luck but I won't buy anything but Samsung from now on.

    I'd much rather stripe 512GB 840 Pros than pay a ludicrous amount for a PCIe SSD with much smaller capacity.

    I would not use them even when I get them for free. ALL my OCZ have broken, even the replacements(and I had a few...) NONE of my Samsung have!

    As far as the SSD's are going, I'd park my money at Samsung/Crucial for the time being if I were to buy another one. Currently a happy camper with my 512GB 840 Pro though.

    I use still my prehistoric Adata S592 64GB, because i am lazy to move system to my new Samsung 840 Pro 256GB. With 20872 power on hours, he's legitimate a veteran :D
