Illustration for article titled OCZ Colossus 3.5-Inch SSD Reaches 1TB, Super Speeds

OCZ's new Colossus drives are among the first SSDs designed for desktops, and they're the very first to store up to 1TB of data. Oh, and on top of all that, they work pretty well, too.


PC Perspective tested one of OCZ's 256GB Colossus drives and found "read and write speeds are about as fast as SATA 3Gb/sec will go!" It's nuts that our drives are finally catching up with the plentiful, SATA pipelines, even if OCZ has hacked speeds a bit by essentially building one giant drive out of four smaller SSDs.

Whatever works. Now to sell a spare kidney for the $3300, 1TB configuration. Read the full testing results at: [PC Perspective]


Don't SSD wear out after so many read write? Will this have the same durability as the current hard drives? I don't know about you all but I download and delete and such on my desktop a LOT more than on a netbook or even an mp3 player.
