Happy Halloween! I remember back when I was in elementary school, all my friends would dress up on the last day of the tenth month. They would don the mask from superheroes like Batman or Spiderman, or put on the furry paws of animals like cats or dogs. I even remember my friend making a Blastoise (The final evolution of the first generation water starter Pokemon, Squirtle) costume. I always remember Halloween as a good day of treats, and a day of dropping everything school related to do things Halloween related. As I have grown up from those times, the days of free candy and dressing up are mostly gone. Now the best part of Halloween is the day after, or November 1st, because of the cheap candy on sale after Halloween. Most stores are trying to get rid of their stock, especially with Christmas around the corner, so they hack and slash prices to empty their valuable shelf space. And that, my friends, is the best day to actually do your Trick or Treating. Within twenty four hours of the event, boxes and boxes of candy drop by fifty, sixty and even eighty percent in price. This only seems natural as no one will be purchasing large amounts of candy until the next October 31. The only way that stores can clear through stock is to reduce the price. Thus poor students like myself love to take advantage of these clearance deals. When we turn our heads to the solid state drive market, however, we see a different situation. There is no lack of demand for solid state drives, as people are reaping the benefits of speed increases, but the prices continue to steadily decline. Rather than trying to counter a decreasing demand, manufacturers have been releasing new lines of solid state drives at lower prices to increase the scope of their audience. Nowadays, SSDs can be found below the $1/GB mark. But when OCZ released the ARC 100 series, it took this decline to a completely different level with a MSRP of only $0.43/GB, which begs me to wonder if there are any performance trade-offs. We have seen past OCZ drives with generally good results, so where does the ARC 100 fit in? Let's read on to find out!
