Being the impatient type and addicted to SPEED, I decided to treat myself to the 50gb RC8 SSD flash drive based on my current experience with OCX Vertex 3 hard drives. Love ssd gadgets! Definitely well worth the money and really impressive. Real world backup to the Usb3 RC8 was around 3 times faster than my Usb2 SanDisk Ultra which was the fastest I could find at the time.
Granted, it may be a little pricey but it is a new product which is always higher to start and the quality is excellent with fantastic performance.
Excellent product and I would not hesitate to buy another one and probably will.

WARNING! Update! Do not buy!
Received the Rc8 Oct/3/ 2011. First off, this is the fastest thumb drive and totally amazing When it works! January,I could not maintain a stable connection, then it quit being recognized. Rma'd it and took almost a month and several communications to complete. The new one was equally impressive but only lasted about a month - back to rma. Now I have $33 shipping plus the $185 drive. Got it on March 23rd and on the 27th started having issues with the THIRD drive. Plug it in - all the front and rear usb3 ports are knocked out. Usb2 ports still work with my other drives unless I plug RC8 into the usb2 ports then they are knocked out. Compute will not shut down normally and must be forced to shutdown.
Front usb3 ports, rear usb3 ports, front usb2 ports, rear usb2 ports - don't matter it can and will disable the usb system and create the shutdown problems. Might work great for most the day then the next few times it crashes.
Super Talent has one of the worse product supports I have experienced in my 40 years of messing with computers. Have notified them twice about this last issue and have not recieved any replies.

I was more than a little surprised when after almost 6 months, Samuel Chan with SuperTalent contacted me about resolving my issue. After contacting Samuel, I received a UPS shipping label and instructions to return the RC8 so that they could research and find what had gone wrong with this one. Oct 29th, SuperTalent returned my RC8 which was repaired and working well. Took a long time but they finally stepped up to the plate. I appreciate what Samuel and his manager have done to remedy this situation. Had the same procedure been conducted to begin with, I would have had no issues with SuperTalent as I understand new technology can be a little buggy! Now I will see how long it continues to operate. It is an amazing piece of technology and hopefully it will now also become a dependable technology.

I just built my first computer, its a HTPC. Most of the parts came from this store. It is hard to beat their prices, especially on combo deals. Highly recommend this store to the novice like myself... (more)
