  1. The 3.5" version looks too heavy to stay straight when installed. They should have put the HDD closer to the bracket.
  2. Those cards look absolutely ridiculous.... Is this 2003? -_-
  3. Great! now all i need to install the card is scaffolding. Might need to buy a hard hat just in case.
  4. I can understand a SSD on PCIe for increased bandwidth but WTF is the point of a HD on PCIe?

    They are HYBRID drives that use flash as cache.

    This way, you get most of the benefit of SSD's performance without sacrificing space. The 2TB model will probably end up costing over $300 though.
  6. cough...REVODRIVE HYBRID... cough
    The holy OCZ has been there.. done that..
    (That sort of failed rather bad, look it up)

    Hybrid drives are well within the bandwidth limitations of SATA III.
  8. I'd rather have SSD and HDD separate and decide on what I want to load faster

    That depends in the implementation. SuperTalent quotes 800MB/s for their hybrid drives which would exceed SATA3's theoretical capacity by about 33%.
