Default $259 OCZ Core SSD vs $800 Samsung SSD

A couple of weeks ago, OCZ announced its Core Series, a family of low-cost, high-performance SSDs that is intended to make solid -state storage affordable for the masses. The Core Series is expected to retail for $169 (32GB), $259 (64GB), and $479 (128GB) while offering read transfer rates well over 100MBps and seek under 1ms. In a world where high-performance SSDs typically cost hundreds of dollars more — the 64GB Samsung SATA II we’ve been testing retails for well over $800 — OCZ’s advertised numbers are impressive.

To test the read/write speed of the drive, we took a folder filled with 5GB of mixed media files (images, videos, sounds, docs) and copied them from one folder on the hard drive to another. The results on the OCZ Core Series were a bit better than the default 5,400rpm Western Digital hard drive, a lot better than the embarrassingly-slow SanDisk SATA 5000, but unfortunately double the time of the Samsung SATA II. To be fair, the Samsung SATA II is a more expensive drive, based on more costly SLC memory so we expect better write times if not better read times as well.
