You are partly correct.
Read the thread again.
You asked a question and I answered it with my personal opinion. No, I do not think a $160 ssd that is literally twice as expensive as very good $80 ocz/Samsung/crucial/Intel ssd is the "best" ssd in a htpc forum.
Then you actually took issue with me questioning the $160 (twice as expensive) ssd as possibly not being the "best" choice for a htpc forum. (Btw I feel the same way about the overpriced for htpc Samsung pro ssd)
Pretty ironic given your above comments.
I get it. I never took offense to your points. I even went out of my way to say I agreed or that you were correct on certain things.
The only offense I took was you were a bit aggressive in your stance. Providing your input or opinion is fine. But you took offense to the fact the thread existed, questioning it's appropriateness in this forum.
I do believe talk about $150 SSD drives is appropriate when many spend that on HDD's for storage. It's not like the price is anymore than we've been paying for HDD's for 10 years.
I thought it was interesting that the Samsung840 Pro and Vector are two of the best performing drives on market- and both us a proprietary SSD controller to differentiate them from standard issue Sandforce/Marvel SSD's. Also that SSD performance has increased to the point where it is beginning to saturate SATA3 interfaces. Just discussion.
Not once did anyone say it was the best choice for a HTPC build, or that people should use it or go buy it. You imagined that or created that perception then began to battle against it. Even when I agreed with most of what you were saying you continued your arguements and tried denounce both OCZ and the Vector from even consideration for any application. You claimed to be unbiased but your bias was clear. It's like you could not see the distinction between simply discussing a new product versus recommending it. You took a lot of effort to bash on it- or suggest it was not a good choice for HTPC when no one was saying it was a good choice. It was just a conversation about a new product launch.
I actually enjoyed the discussion with you. I'm sorry you took so much offense to it. It really was not my intention.
