Re: PhotoFast G-Monster PCIe SSD

Available in capacities up to 1TB, the card boasts read speeds of up to 750MB/s. Three models are available, the smallest being 256GB, a mid-tier 512GB and finally the 1TB big-daddy.

Unlike rival systems, the PhotoFast G-Monster is bootable for Windows XP or Vista, so you won?t need a separate OS drive to go with it. Each is rated for 1,500,000 hours use. No word on pricing as yet (think expensive), but they?ll arrive in April.

Re: PhotoFast G-Monster PCIe SSD

So SSD?s don?t have the longest lifespan?ok their lifespan is substancially shorter than a tranditional spinning hard drive. But what they lack in life, they make up for in pure speed and durability (shock resistance). If you have a PCIe slot just sitting unused and unloved on your computer, the PhotoFast G-Monster would love to call it home.

Re: PhotoFast G-Monster PCIe SSD

The big letdown for now is that their is no pricing information. I guaruntee that all of the capacities, especially the 1TB will cost you pretty close to an entire limb and maybe even part of an internal organ. But for geeked tech lovers such as us, organs are but trivial things?
