It was about time to start thinking about the huge market that they currently missing mainly that’s because of the price, so i really hope that the price wont be higher than 60-70 euros, then OCZ would have made the best deal and after we can wait for a good price war between the other manufactures that also want a bigger share of the SSD market.

At the moment, the cheapest SSD I came across online sold in Ireland is €97 for the OCZ 30GB Solid and €164 for the Corsair Reactor 60GB, both on Komplett.

With the OCZ 30GB solid already below €100 here, I’d imagine the Onyx to be around €80, but let’s hope it goes further than this. :slight_smile:

I’ll probably get it for my Netbook as I haven’t used more than 15GB yet, as I mainly use it as a portable video player, for portable Internet access and to edit content on the move (mostly product reviews.) As I don’t use it much at home, by the time I pop it online, it has several updates for Windows, Flash, Adobe, Java, Firefox, etc. all which are heavy time consuming HDD crunchers.

On Monday or Tuesday Newegg had an OCZ 30GB SSD (with specs much better than this) for $75 or $80 CDN after $30 MIR. It was a Shell Shocker deal.

I think this was the item:

A buddy of mine bought the 60GB version last week for $180, He says it’s pretty fast. I look forward to getting one later this year, probably from OCZ.

Nice to see SSD prices continuing to go down :slight_smile:

Wake me up when 128gb or better yet 256gb gets to under $99… until then this not a mainstream product.

Per GB to $ …think
it isn’t cheaper with not looking good specs
