OCZ Core Series 64GB SSD

OCZ Core Series 64GB SSD

Final Words and Conclusion

What we did like:
The OCZ Core Series are clearly mega performers and the icing on the cake is they cost around half the price of most other manufacturers SSD units. We are certain that other companies will cut down their retail prices in order to compete, but OCZ right now have the market cornered for the best performance to price ratio. The OCZ Core Series SSD drive has other advantages over mechanical HDDs apart from speed. For a start there is better shock resistance (even if the sticker at the bottom of the drive insists otherwise), lower power consumption (1.8W Max), considerably less heat dissipation and greater reliability.

What we did not like:
The only thing that will keep the Core Series drives from selling en masse are retail prices. Unfortunately the price per GB is still high, even though the Core Series drives halved SSD cost on the day of their release.

Who would we recommend it to:
The OCZ Core Series 64GB SSD drive is certainly a great product by today’s standards. It is a fast MLC SSD drive and very durable at the same time. About two months ago we reviewed a 32GB SLC SSD drive and we foretold that retail prices will be reasonable in less than a year; we are already on the right track. Because of their 2.5" format, Core Series drives are excellent replacements for laptops. Not only will they increase battery life but their performance can be 3 to 4 times faster than a typical 2.5" mechanical drive. If ultimate speeds are the most important factor to you, the OCZ SSD drives can also be used as main desktop drives or even to assemble a very fast RAID array.

Considering all of the above, we believe that the performance of the OCZ Core Series drive and the very aggressive retail pricing earns it our Gold Award.

The OCZ Core Series 64GB drive can be found at
Newegg.com for 279.00$ and at
Yoyotech.co.uk for £174.10.
