The OCZ Colossus Desktop SSD is a solid state drive designed for desktop systems. As an alternative to disk-based hard drives, this product is designed to provide increased performance for high-end users. Compared to traditional hard drives, the OCZ Colossus reduces heat and noise output, which translates into increased energy savings. While many competing SSDs are only available in 2.5” configurations, the OCZ Colossus is designed specifically for desktops and server racks with standard 3.5” drive bays. The larger size means users do not have to use a mounting bracket to install OCZ’s SSD inside their computers. This SSD is available in 120GB, 250GB, 500GB, and 1TB capacities. The OCZ Colossus Desktop SSD comes with a 3 year warranty.
