OCZ Octane 512GB Review (Page 10 of 10)

Page 10 - Conclusion

Trolling. Sometimes, it can really make you look like a jerk, but other times, trolling in the right place at the right time can really be an act of sheer brilliance. Okay, maybe it won't delete the jerk factor, but who cares? As a person who relies heavily on my network attached storage server on my home network, it really isn't necessary to have an uber large local disk. As such, for the longest time, I have used a Western Digital 500GB hard drive for all my files sans videos (Plus an SSD as a boot drive, of course). With the release of the OCZ Octane 512GB, flash the cash from my wallet and I could say -- who needs a hard drive? This SSD is not only faster than my HDD as OCZ suggests, it is also bigger than my HDD. A year ago, a drive with the same capacity would probably require me to remortgage my house to make this purchase. Fast forward to today, it is only a hefty credit card bill that will take a chunk off my monthly salary. After all, who needs a life savings, right? If you want to troll your friends and build a pure SSD computer with ample storage capacity, and will not require you to break the bank other than good ol' porky on your desk, the OCZ Octane 512GB is a nice start to kicking the magnetic spinning things out of the pretty picture. And that's with surprisingly competitive performance to boot, too.

OCZ provided this product to APH Networks for the purpose of evaluation.

Since April 30, 2007, Number Ratings have been dropped for all CPUs, motherboards, RAM, SSD/HDDs, and graphics cards. This is to ensure the most appropriate ratings reflected without the inherent limits of using numbers. Everything else will continue using the Number Rating System.

If you want decent storage speed with awesome capacity at a price in the stratosphere rather than the exosphere, the OCZ Octane 512GB is the SSD to buy.
