I'm sure SSD's will revolutionize the IT industry and this bad boy could well be on everyone's wish lists for the next few years:

  1. It might make the wish lists if they made it in SATA! or if they wish us to seriously consider buying one. Imo, that drive is more aimed at the sever market, where data transfer rates can be critical, than the high end regular PC market.
  2. Thing probably costs $100,000.
  3. When these finally take over from mechanical hard drives it'll be a revelation. Negligible access time AND huge transfer rates? In fact it'll be interesting if this will eventually replace the need for RAM altogether!

    Revelation or revolution?

    Seriously, I can't get into the hype over flash-based SSDs. There are quite a few far more promising techs out there that don't have the reliability issues flash faces. My opinion is that flash will be, pardon the pun, simply a flash in the pan. A stop-gap solution if you would.
  6. Mechanical hard drives have been around for DECADES, and although space has increased massively speed hasn't increased nearly as much as everything else in the IT industry.

    Anything which offers a new technology for data storage has got to be exciting, Flash based or not.
