1TB SSD a steal at just over $US3,000

OCZ Technology's new Colossus Series of solid-state drives includes a pricey 1TB option.

If you had over $US3,000 to spare, what would you do with it? Component vendor OCZ Technology hopes that you'll spend it on one of its new, massive 1TB Colossus Series SSDs.

The 3.5-inch drives, which come in a sleek lightweight aluminum design, were originally expected earlier this year, but were delayed for undisclosed reasons--until now. OCZ's Colossus Series SSDs are available in a variety of capacities, starting with a $US550 120GB model. Colossus Series drives are also available in 250GB and 500GB capacities, with the top-end model offering 1TB of storage.

The 1TB Colossus drive is the first solid-state drive (SSD) to pack in such a high capacity. However, the luxury of speed and space comes at an extreme price, with the high-end model costing a massive $US3,300. That said, despite the immense price tag, PC Perspective deems the SSD a worthy contender, commending its impressive read and write speeds.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
