OCZ Core Series V2 SATA II SSD

OCZ Core Series V2 SATA II  SSD OCZ announced a new series of 2.5″ Serial ATA (SATA) Solid State Drives (SSD) yesterday, with a cool twist.

OCZ claims the new series, the OCZ Core Series V2 SATA II SSD, will cost half as much as existing comparable SSDs (although no pricing was mentioned) and will be offered in capacities up to 250GB.

The cool twist – they have a mini-USB port on the end. OCZ says this is to allow for firmware updating in the future, to “further enhance compatibility or performance with future platforms.”

The stats:
Read speeds: Up to 170 MB/s
Write speeds: Up to 98 MB/s
Seek time: Less than 0.2 – 0.3ms
Mean Time Before Failure (MTBF) : 1.5 million hours
Warranty: 2 years
