Not ready for prime time

By WMAMAN from Florida on 04/24/2011


Pros:

Cheap, Fast

Cons:

Not Reliable, No Vmware Drivers

Best Uses:

Heavy Multitasking, Virtualization

Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I have been waiting for this product for months. I tied a 120 GB OCZ Vertex II to a 3TB Hitachi in the hopes of using it with Oracle's Virtual Box or VMware's Vsphere. While testing it under Windows it seamed to be very fast (250 MB/s r/w - about twice as fast as the 3TB alone) it was unreliable. Speed would go up and down, transfers would stop or the whole machine would lock up. Maybe a later BIOS or new drives would help. There also aren't any VMware drives. If I were better at Linux I might be able to figure it out. Native drives would be nice...
