It is absolutely amazing how the technology is making the life of so many of us so excited and easy and being a fan of technology I always get excited about the new innovation. wholesale trade

I have always been happy with the samsung products. There is nothing better then samsung when it comes to this. It is just my opinion.

 A nice, informative, and very well-written article.  Thanks for doing a good job.

In my person experience with both mechanical hard drives and SSDs, write speed isn't nearly so critical as read times.  Most write operations happen in the background while the user performs other tasks.  Even my daily clone operation of my entire hard drive to an external drive takes place in the background while I do other things.  So, even though it takes several minutes, it isn't relevant to my productivity. (or lack of it)

If everything else came to a stop during any disk write operation, that would be a "whole 'nother story".  :)

People will have to back up or risk losing their data.  If the hard drive fails, atleast i have a possiblity to send the drive to a data recovery center at a high cost for the data, because technically the data is still there.  If a memory module fails on the SSD hard drive, the data on the chip is gone.

Who doesn't opt for online backup these days? You can't rely on your disk drives to last forever, sooner or later a virus or some failure can leave you without precious data. I have learned my lesson, after i have lost all my clients data when my laptop was stolen. It was password protected and i am sure those thieves couldn't break it, but it hurt my business not being able to deliver in time.

ssds are a lot more reliable than hdds, that's the major reason i like them so much.

I remember reading up on the lifespan of the chips used in thumb drives being somewhat more finite than other storage mediums - like hard disks.

The quote "3 to 5 year" lifespan for hard disks seems awfully inacurate.  I still have every hard drive owned since 1992 and they all still work and have had 0 data loss (granted I can find a controller card and mobo to boot them up with =)

Thumb drives on the other hand.... well, not so lucky, and only been using those for the last few years.

 
My point being:

I wonder how different the chips in these ssds are from thumb drive chips.  At this point I'm sketched to put anything important on an ssd before more time proves otherwise.

They went to a bit of detail about some of their SSD's. They went on a bit about the algarythms that they use for such a thing as reading and writting... I do belive the difference now then the time before (flash memory to Solid state) was a difference in years of performance. I do belive I remember right that they have it now to where you could read/write 80 gigs of data a day for the next 15 years and not have a problem.

 Odd thing is, if memory is at an all time low, why are these so expensive?  I'm waiting on the aticle on ADD. I think it woul be... oh, look, something shiny.
