I second the comment about making them yourself, get a tiny raid controller that you can connect up to 12 32gb or 64gb SD cards and you have saved yourself allot of money and it will actually use allot less space than a 3.5inch drive bay.
I was going to do this with CF cards a long time ago... never got around to doing it.
Ugh, if SSD's would just come down another 40% or so i'd be willing to pay for one. The sad fact is that you can still buy 2 normal HDD's, set them up in a raid 0, and get roughly equivalent transfer rates. Yes, access time is a lot worse, but overall you're getting a far better bargain, and much more capacity.
If i could get a 128gb SSD with 150/150 read/write or better for $175-$200, i would gladly pay that.
one word flushes your entire 2200 bucks down the drain... "jmicron"
wtf, why would they not use a better controller on a high end product?
I don't think anyone wants to pay 2200 bucks for a stuttering hdd.
SD Cards don't have performance of an SSD drive. SD, like typical low-cost flash memory cards/drives are very fast for what they do, used mostly in the portable market - are not designed for the high-performance demands of a desktop computer. They'll wear out faster than SSD drives and not have the performance. Nevermind not even coming close to the SSD-PCIe drives ($1500+) which can transfer 1500~2000MB/s!
Lets do some math.
The SD-RAID0-SSD Device is about $150 (I don't know, lets guess)
Each 32GB SD-Card is $100 (Some are down to $80, but for math reasons, its easier)
So for 320GB, you'll need 10 cards = $1000 ($800 for the cheaper ones) + adapter = $950~1150.
Well, they don't make 320GB SSD Drives, but 256 and 512. 256 = $600, two of those would be $1200.... same price that OCZ is offering their 512GB drive.
