i was supposed to mean the size the a sugar cube....
but the had actually Pictures of sugar cubes...lol
but hey 10tb the size of a sugar cube???
thats incredible

as for the cake
if they created it from sugar cubes they would only need two or three on every "drive"(if they called it that HDD (Holographic Disk Drive...lol)...
there would be increased production of sugar

well then again they also imagined the "flying cars of the future"
so you are right on that...lol

I'm going to have to give this serious consideration for my new system. This price isn't that bad and it's plenty big for an OS. I've read a couple places that the first of the year the prices are going way down. Like everyone is saying you can use HDDs for storage.

dont buy it if you are going to do any data intensive programs (it wont you give you the same ramdom disk write speed as a 10k drive..)
Multi-level cell - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (on the last paragraph)

and if you are you are going to do some tweaking to get a good Rdw
(using steadystate)

but if not then it will be a great drive for you

Winning a Science fair is showing *proven* technology. I am not saying that NG is not a reputable magazine - I am saying that this kid had the theory worked out and demonstrated the possibility that it would actually work.

Magnetic media that can hold a lot more data then even the current big boys can hold....

Do read some reviews on performance and the like - 60 GB is good enough for a single OS, but at that price you can ge better performance out of a VelociRaptor at 5 times the size - good enough for 3 (or more) OSs....

That too. The ones advertised at the beginning of this thread specifically mention Multi-level cells....

right
i am not saying that it wasnt proven or not (it was proven in the pub they showed the actual process along with the finished product) i was saying that a one of the biggest publications say right out that they were expecting to have this technology everywhere by that time...

as for the kid good for him i give him props for being able to comprehend that...

Review: Maxell 32GB Solid State Storage Device



Maxell dual-head device gives eSATA data transfer rates with USB 2.0 compatibility

Maxell's dual storage device, announced in October and available now, combines the better data transfer rates available from e-Serial ATA (eSATA) technology with USB 2.0 connectivity.
However, the device with the firmware release we had will only work on eSATA/USB combo ports, and not on eSATA-only ports. Maxell said that early models will need a firmware upgrade to connect to eSATA-only ports, which will mean returning the device to Maxell.

The mirror-finish 16g device packs 32GB into its 770mm x 260mm x 5mm body, and has an exposed mini-USB 2.0 connection on one end, and an eSATA connection at the other shielded by a cap.

Our test system was a Toshiba A600-122 Portégé, with a 1.2GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor and 2Gb of memory. Checking the eSATA data transfer rates using SiSoftware's System ANalyser, Diagnostic and Reporting Assistant 2009 gave a read speed of 64MB/s. Running a real-world data transfer write test gave 22.8MB/s using large file sizes. With a test mix of smaller files we recorded a data transfer speed just over 10MB/s.

Yes Nigel; thanks.

As my new CM Cosmos case has an eSATA port on the control panel on the top of the case that will be very convenient.
