62MB is relatively fast...=O

I'd like to see this in action, however, before any statements regarding transfer speeds and such can be confirmed.

The speed must be correct. This is in production now.

Costs $600 however!

100 times faster than standard drives. I can't wait to see actual benchmarks on this. If this works as it should, this could be a huge improvement in computing.

I think mechanical drives have had their days numbered for sometime now. I'd imagine the price on these SSDs will fall signifcantly, given time.

$600 for 32 GB of storage. What will $600 by you in HD storage? About 2 Terrabytes?

Also, don't forget that writing FLASH storage tends to be much slower than reading.

FLASH drives will be good for things that tend to be stable over time, but for data that change frequently, hard drives will still be better.

IMO, a rewritable media like DVD-R or something like that would be a better way to go.

Price lower than the 8GB compact flash, and those will be selling for $40 in a years time.

Your right, the writes can't be so good. They don't even quote any. But, I'd say most people read data these days.

I can see these could be good for small mp3 players when the price falls.
