OCZ is on a roll at CES this year. It just announced LG's Super Ultrabook Z300 will ship with a 256GB mSATA Indilinx Everest based SSD. I'm still trying to get photos of the actual device so I can get an idea of the channel configuration but it's still great news for the once enthusiast-only memory company.

    I guess I won't be looking at LG when shopping for an ultrabook.

    Anand, what is it your enthusiasm towards OCZ. Some of your wording reads like it came from a PR department.

    You seem to be totally disconnected from the real world where the mere mention of OCZ turns a forum post in to a flame war. The company has people divided and your style of writing does not reflect that.

    I thought the OCZ divide was related to failing Sandforce-based SSDs. I don't really see much problem with a bit of enthusiasm for a company breaking into the OEM scene with a drive based on a new Indilinx controller.

    It is their business decisions that turned so many people against them (e.g. shipping drives with less capacity and performance than stated on the label to customers without telling them).

    Regarding the Octane, it's already on it's 3rd or 4th firmware revision while the 830 which hit the shelves before it is still on its 1st. The Octanes toolbox will only work with msahci as the RST compatible version isn't complete and their firmware update process has yet to have an OS independant version, which is also under construction. OCZ continued their "ship first, finish later" approach by shipping "a small number of drives with an early firmware" according to their official forum support team.
