OCZ Core V2 60 GB SSD

OCZ Core V2 Solid State DrivesOCZ’s Core V2 60 GB SSDs are now available for purchase online.  The affordable price tag of $239 after rebate marks an important milestone in the transition to SSD for data storage.  Of course, buyers trade disk capacity for performance, but the $239 cost is in the same range as mechanical hard drive options, making them a viable option for a much wider demographic.  The OCZ Core V2 SSDs feature read speeds of 170MB/sec and write speeds of 98MB/sec, which is very attractive for those seeking top system performance.  Comparable solid state drives from other companies cost as much as $400 more per disk.

  2. I was excited by the Core’s comparatively low cost, but it’s still expensive for its storage capacity.
