Cheapest SLC drive for €399
We happened to stumble upon the first listing of OCZ's Agility EX 60GB SSD, which should be the cheapest SLC based 60GB solid state drive on the market. The drive is currently listed at Alternate.de with a price of €399 which is almost €100 cheaper than the competition's offerings.
The drive uses SLC NAND flash memory in combination with the quite popular Indilinx Barefoot controler. It comes with 64MB of on-board cache and offers read and write speeds of up to 255 and 195MB/s. The drive is backed by three years of warranty, and its closest competitor is SuperTalent's Ultradrive GX SLC SSD, which is available for €498. Photofast has a G-Monster V4S SSD for €375 but this one gives you only half the capacity.
OCZ is certainly keeping up with the SSD game, especially thanks to the constant support with new features like auto garbage collecting for Vertex drives, and constant firmware updates, something that consumers certainly can appreciate.
If SLC based SSD is your thing keep an eye out for OCZ's Agility EX. You can find it listed here.
