ocz onyxThe OCZ Onyx is a new SSD aimed at users looking for a fast boot drive or as a laptop hard drive replacement where storage space is not critical. It’s a 2.5-inch form factor SATA drive, and OCZ correctly calls it “ultra-affordable”. Now you can get some additional rebate on the already low $106.99 list price – it’s currently selling for just $89.99.

– Onyx SSDs provide high performance at a low price, making the technology available to customers who want to take advantage of SSD performance but do not want to pay the typically high price associated with the technology, says Ryan Petersen, CEO of OCZ.

The first model stores 32 gigabytes (actual available storage: 30GB) and is based on multilevel cell (MLC) NAND circuits. Read speed is 125 megabytes per second, while write operations are carried out at 70 megabytes per second.

According to the manufacturer, the Onyx manages an operating time of 1.5 million hours MTBF according to the standard, a type of endurance measurement.
