The Team at TSSDR would like to congratulate our winner of this fantastic prize – Norman HENDRICKSON (USA). Thank you to all who entered.
THIS CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED WE WILL POST THE WINNER SHORTLY.
The holiday season is upon us and our friends at LSI Corp. thought they might offer a bit of holiday cheer and thank you for the support throughout this past year. And have they!?!? Teaming up with our family at The SSD Review, LSI Corp.has been kind enough to offer the opportunity to giveaway one of their premium offerings, the LSI Nytro™ MegaRAID® NMR 8120-4i Flash Accelerator Card. For those who don’t know, the 8120-4i can be found retail at above $7000, is PCI Express 3.0 x8 and contains 800GB of eMLC NAND flash memory.
With extreme caution, we brought to the attention of LSI that this Nytro™ MegaRAID® card is something that even the most extreme enthusiasts don’t get the opportunity to dream about, much less the average Joe. LSI cautioned that Nytro cards are designed for enterprise servers so going to PC motherboards could potentially have compatibility issues, however, told us to enjoy and have fun with the giveaway! We give EXTREME thanks to the LSI Team for their support over the years and, with that, we are happy to provide the opportunity to participate in (and possibly win) the biggest SSD giveaway that we think will ever be offered!
Let’s start things off with reference to our detailed review of the NMR 8120-4i.
This is a global giveaway, eligible to those 18 years of age and older at the time of entry, and only residents of countries that permit shipment of encryption contained hardware without the necessity of an export license being obtained are eligible.
