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

Power Consumption

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.
