OCZ Colossus 960gb ssd
Hi guys, new here but I frequent and post in the notebook sister forum. Anyways, have a quick question, what is a fair price for the OCZ Colossus 2 960gb ssd, reason for asking is because I have the chance to buy a dozen of them or so for what I believe to be a good deal.

Be careful, I had an OCZ agility 2 that worked well for quite awhile....then died in spectacular fashion....RMA'ed it and less thean a month later the replacement went the same way....they actually gave me an agilty 3 as replacment...but I went with Samsung for reliability.....if it uses a sandforce controller be extra careful, as those seem to be not "if" it will fail, but when (and well before end of expected life).Corsair Obsidian D ~Silverstone ST-1000-P~ i7 950 @ 4.2 GHZ/1.26V (EOC)~GA X58A-UD3R~ 2X EVGA GTX 570 SC in SLI~6GB G Skill super PI DDR3 1600 CAS 7~128 GB Samsung 830 SSD/ 1TB WD 7200 RPM 64MB cache~ Samsung Blue ray / DVDRW ~ EVGA GTX 260 - Core 216 SC for physX ~ Asus 1080P 120HZ LCD/NV 3D vision ~ Acer AL2216W 22" secondary display~ XFI TI

Think about who you are going to sell it to. A 3.5in SSD that is EOL and has lackluster specs is probably worth less than that. Yes, it has a high capacity, but since you are dealing with desktops, you can easily get 2(two) 480GB/512GB SSDs(it is expensive but more performance and a safer bet).
Yes, older sandforce drives that do not have firmware updates should be avoided. Newer ones, I am more than happy to take a chance especially when you can get a decent size 240GB for as cheap as $140 when there is a sale(512GB SSD can be as cheap as $330)... and prices are coming down.
