The Octane uses the Indilinx Everest Controller. It's a new product so stability is not proven, but the outlook is pretty rosy. Not a benchmark king. Here it is compared to the OCZ Vertex 3[anandtech.com]. But the benchmarks don't exactly translate to how the SSD feels in front of you. An analogy, a standard HDD tops out at 50mph. Can you tell the difference between 210 and 220mph?
To summarize, this drive has strong read performance which puts it squarely in the top tier of SSDs, the only caveat is a sometimes limited write speed. The slower write speeds make it a poor choice for some. Such as those operating in a trimless Mac OSX enviroment to do video editing. Outside of that specific work scenario, this is a great SSD and your decision should be simply $/GBs.
