OCZ Adds The "Performance"-Level Vertex Series V2 SATA 2.5" To Its Growing Family of Solid State Drives
Pundits keep telling us that the future of hard disk storage will be Solid State Drives (SSDs), and that this future will be here sooner than we think. SSD drives offer compact storage in devices that have no moving parts, so they are far more durable that traditional platter-based hard drives; and SSDs also have the potential to operate much quicker than traditional drives with both reads and writes. The only reasons why SSDs haven't supplanted traditional hard drives yet as the mass-storage medium of choice are that SSDs are still much more expensive than traditional hard drives and SSDs still come in relatively small storage capacities—especially when compared to today's relatively inexpensive, large-capacity, platter-based drives...
