Here's one to ponder on! "PCIe SSD task force to tackle interoperability issues" PCIe SSD task force to tackle interoperability issues - Computerworld

The latest form of SSD is apparently running into several problems showing they still haven't perfected the PCIe format quite yet. That's the format seen for the latest large capacity drives.

SSD are going to become the HDD in the future...they're going to come out with something that will be faster than SSD therefor SSD's will be our new "HDD" as long as the pricing will be right.

The honourable Mr. Gates espoused for quite a while that anyone considering they would ever need more than 128K memory, clearly did not understand how computers worked.

Who knew ?

Exactly, applications get bigger as new hardwares are created.

Hi there

I DID once think that SSD's might not be the answer - but having dropped both a standard external HDD and an SSD on the stone floor at St Pancras station rushing for a Eurostar train (Serves me right "More Haste Less Speed -- and I normally NEVER rush like that - I just say I'll get the next one - meanwhile I'll drink in the Lounge etc) the SSD showed NO SIGNS whatsoever of any damage / malfunction / etc.

The HDD worked but gave the odd "funny noise" -- So I backed up both.

The SSD was an older one (only 80GB) so it was going to be retired anyway but for robustness my vote goes to SSD.

Cheers
jimbo

As applications grow so does the need for drive capacity. Twelve years ago who would think you could be adding 2-3tb drives into any case?

The first notebook being an Epson HX-20 saw a 512kb display(calculator sized led display) and a 60min. microcassette tape drive or ram module you plugged in on one side of the unit. Now that same size plastic case would easily see a laptop with 6gb of memory, 200gb drive with a 13-15 display.

Just for the record - there are quite a few reputable SSDs that are close to $1/GB. Just look for the sales.

Example: Newegg.com - Mushkin Enhanced Chronos MKNSSDCR120GB 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Hum pity they don't ship out here whs with out dollar as it is it would probably break even or even less than $/GB.

As for the future the way thins are going as I mentioned before re circuits and trannies based at atomic sizings SSD's could end up smaller than postage stamp if not the whole machine!

Graphene - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia and some refs I saw on a site last night re some German research into n/p switchable transistors - exciting stuff.
