Power Consumption

Conventional Hard Drive Obsoletism? Samsung's 32 GB Flash Drive Previewed
By

Easily the lowest power consumption of any drive tested. It should be noted that Samsung states operational power use at 0.5W which was almost half our tested result.

Read/Write Transfer Rates

Read Transfer rates reflect UltraATA/66 limitations, which are virtually maxed out for each benchmark.

Write Transfer rate is lower than expected at 29 MB/s, but still quite respectable beating out a number of drives.

    Well, here you go, 6 days later they are everywhere on a market and I personally have flash drives inside of my computer as a main memory, In fact I have 2 SSDs in raid with Amazing speeds taking advantage of latest 6GB/s sata technology. Everything just flies and the advantage is tremendous. I managed to get up to 1Gbyte/s for read and up to 0.7Gbyte/s for write. Isn't is awesome? How far we've gone in only 6 years since this article was published!
