Quoted from OCZ SATA I SSD Reviews:Check out these quotes from OCZ SATA I SSD reviews & previews
"In conclusion, the OCZ SATA-II Solid State Drive is an excellent product for extending notebook battery life and increasing overall system performance. With prices much closer to affordable, gamers and hardware enthusiasts may also benefit from the new technology, and utilize the OCZSSD2 to power their high-performance computer system. The performance is difinately there, and the price has become less of an issue; so it might be time to give Solid State Drives a try! I highly recommend the OCZ SATA-II OCZSSD2-1S32G 32GB 2.5-Inch Solid State Drive, as it has set read speed records at a cost more in-line with enthusiast expectations."
"Well at the end of the day there is no denying that the OCZ SSD is one extremely fast storage device. For use in a laptop where hard disks generally have a much smaller capacity and poor performance compared with their desktop counterparts, the OCZ 32GB SSD would be ideal. This combined with the fact that SSD technology in general consumes a lot less power and runs much cooler than traditional mechanical hard disks and OCZ could well be taking quite a few orders from the notebook community. However, speed isn't enough to help the OCZ SSD when it comes to use on a performance desktop PC. While the drive may have been able to match and even beat the performance of the lightning fast Western Digital Velociraptor in benchmarks such as Windows Startup and Game loading times it really falls behind when it comes down to file copying and general write-intensive tasks. Sure the SSD is able to maintain an equal level of performance across the entire disk, but with the Velociraptor managing to almost match the average transfer speed of the SSD with its minimum transfer speed the OCZ SSD is going to have to get quite a bit faster before it can win any benchmarks hands-down."
"Overall, OCZ's first foray into the world of solid state drives is actually pretty good, if not as good as we had hoped. The incredibly fast seek times as well as the low power draw and noiseless operation definitely add up to something that is worth considering but the slow sustained and average transfer rates really bring the whole package down a notch. We will have an updated SATA-II version of this drive in very soon and will get it up on the test bench ASAP to post another comparison here that we hope will really blow away the first SSD's results."
