OWC Accelsior PCIe SSD Reader Comment

Already tested was the 240GB Accelsior PCIe SSD.

I am testing the 480GB Accelsior now, and will be posting performance results soon.

After reading your article on the PCIe SSD card I bought the 240GB version.

Couldn't agree more that this is the best way to go; what a difference a simple $500 card makes.

Your contribution to 'the internet' with your MPG site, as well as photography is greatly appreciated by me. I can't really add anything to the response Ed F already gave, just thanking you for having created a total resentment to HDD's. Which does lead me to a question, and I fully understand if you don't reply; you already seem to be busier than a one-legged man in a kick fight with your websites and MPG Workstation business.

PS: I am also a fervent cyclist, combined with photography and computers, nee, Apple Macs, I see we share 3 interests. Do you come across more people with these 3 same interests?

DIGLLOYD: The Accelsior is a ground-breaking product offering a compelling reason to go with the Mac Pro instead of an iMac. By a vendor (OWC) that is “all in” on Macs in terms of quality and testing and support (OWC products are good for PCs also). Driver-free, few things are as gratifying as the Accelsior card.

As far as hard disk drives (HDD), they remain useful for high capacity storage. With the Accelsior, current jobs can be stored on the Accelsior, with perhaps a RAID-1 mirror of two 4TB drives for fault tolerant storage of the big stuff (just one of many possible configs). Migrating older material to the hard drives is one good way to benefit 100% of the time from the speed of the Accelsior.

Triple interests: it seems that photographers and Macs and cycling go together fairly often, which was my hunch and one reason I launched I don’t know the percentages, but I suppose most readers are not avid cyclists, yet there are more than a few.
