    OCZ's 1 TB Colossus SSD Costs $2200
    by Kevin Parrish, August 3, 2009

    " OCZ's upcoming Colossus SSDs will cost between $300 and $2200.

    Engadget managed to acquire the pricing and availability of OCZ Technology's upcoming Colossus line of SSDs. According to OCZ, the 1 TB drive will cost consumers a whopping $2200, and should be available on the market in "about three weeks." The hefty 400g 1 TB drive--or rather a working prototype--first made an appearance at Computex this past June, revealing a chunky 3.5-inch form factor for desktops that doesn't require converter brackets.

    Electronista is also reporting that the 1 TB drive integrates two separate SSD components that are arranged in a RAID 0 configuration, driven by a JMicron controller. The drive supposedly features read speeds of up to 250 MB/s and write speeds of 220 MB/s over a SATA2 interface.

    In addition to the 1 TB version, OCZ will also offer three other Colossus SSDs: the 120 (128 GB @ $300), 250 (256 GB @ $650), and the 500 (512 GB @ $1200). "

    isn't a 1 TB SSD risking it? Why not have an 80 gig one for your boot up partition and the reast a Regular HD, much more reliable(and cheaper) i'd say...
    Spoiler: Show

    Isn't reliability on of the points in SSD's favor?
