the 240gb model is 480 instead of 580
Are there any advantages to the owc drive over other ssd's with the sandforce controller chips? There are several ssd's with sandofrce controller on newegg cheaper than this.
From what I can tell, in terms of performance, the owc looks roughly equivalent to the vertex 2 in performamce. Are there some performance advantages I'm missing? I've only looked at a couple of reviews, so maybe I missed something. Is there a reliability or some sort of mac compatibility advantage?
Regardless of if there are definitive advantages, thanks philipma1957. Very cool of you to share deals with others.
Yeah, from what I can tell, they look identical. I actually wouldn't be shocked if they were the exact same drives with different casework.
Well, there's the whole "support a company that does tons of Mac-based support and product development" angle.
The Mac Performance Guide also really likes them - he's got some stats showing they suffer less of a performance hit over time.
Is there any reason to believe that the MPG is somehow related to OWC? They sell a prepackaged Mac Pro (the MPG Pro Workstation) through OWC.
Still way too expensive. Hopefully by this time next year, prices will be halved..
how about this a 256gb ssd with a 10 year warranty 389 usd. amazon dot com link for you
these would be great for some

I believe he makes deals with retailers he likes - he gets a cut, his customers get easy-mode, pre-configured, admittedly badass workstations.
Regardless, other folks who don't - Maximum PC, etc. also really like OWC.
