    Featuring 0,5 erase cycles / cell? Shrinkage isn't always a good thing when it comes to nand's

    "The drives are ideal for high-end notebooks, tablets, PCs, all-in-one desktop computers and industrial PCs."

    ideal for everything... marketing nonsense. I could give a rats @$$ about the "19 mm" unless that translates to drives that cost 1/4 the current price of SSDs

    Basically they're saying - if it has a micro, throw one of these in there....yeah, not much detail - just marketing hype.

    Am I the only person that saw how massive this flash is 19 mm wish 19,000,000 nm insanity I say do I have a room that I can fit a 512GB SSD into at that size. It's a million times larger than many of its competitors.

    Joking aside you might want to fix that abbreviation.

    No mention o0f write endurance, it can't be good. I am surprised that they are offering smaller than 240Gig drives considering the write endurance problem at this feature size.
