OCZ Z-Drive R2 p88
Released April, 2010
The Pros:Extremely fast access speeds, far outstripping what SATA drives are capable of. Durable and reliable, doesn't tend to wear out easily. Can be upgraded to larger capacities.
The Cons:The price puts it completely out of reach for many consumers. Access of large collections of smaller files isn't too much faster than a SATA drive.
