Since they are USB3, there are a lot of applications. Wait until the price comes down and they will be hot.

When I read about stuff like this it blows my mind! Years ago (mid 70's) I worked for IBM as a tech testing their 3350 Disk Drive which was considered to be the top of the heap at the time. It was the size of a chest freezer, required 220V power and had 2 disk packs (HDA - Head Disk Assembly) that held 300M each. A string of these drives (4 in a string) held a whopping 2.4G, less than 1/10th of the capacity of that flash drive, not to mention the power, space and cost difference. Absolutely amazing!

That would be one heck of a Window's Ready-Boost device for sure, maxing out RB all the way.

Yeah, I remember those too. I worked at the Santa Theresa IBM location in San Jose at that time. That's where they were made.
