OCZ Octane 512GB SATA 6Gb/s Solid State Drive Review
Patrick "MACMAC" MacMillan
Hardware Canucks have reviewed the new OCZ Octane 512GB SATA 6Gb/s solid state drive, which is the first model utilizing the Indilinx Everest controller.
Let's see what they had to say:
"The OCZ Octane series presents us with a bit of a dilemma. Its lower capacities still present a good value for money proposition but we feel the 512GB version needs a significant price cut in order to compete in todays market. Its controller may not be the best around but OCZ does have a knack for boosting the appeal of their drives through continuous firmware optimizations so we expect more from it in the future. However, in the here and now, wed recommend holding off purchasing an Octane 512GB until its price has settled down a bit. At that point, it may become an affordable, high capacity alternative for people looking to make a switch away from traditional disk-based storage."
Although they have a point about the 512GB model being overpriced, I still believe that OCZ's new Indilinx controller is pretty impressive.
