I like the last sentence a whole lot. "Performance for the new drives look promising, with rated read and write speeds up to 250MB/s and 200MB/s respectively."

I don't know about you but a 512Gig SSD with these performance numbers is what I've been dreaming of. Two of these drives in Raid 0 would be enough to make me happy. I mean you can use two 512gig SSDs in Raid for your OS and applications and mirror the whole shibang to say a 1TB Samsung F1 HDD for redundancy. Perhaps another year to a year and a half and SSD drives will be alot more popular and much cheaper in price.  



"and differentiated product families targeted for appropriate applications."

That qoute almost sounds like he's preping us for low performance because the SSD is 'targeted' for a different application of solid state drives. Not sure 'application' is the right word. Performance applies to everything, even just opening a Word doc (especially nowadays). We all know he's just saying if your cheap, then you should expect a crappier product. Hehe. Which he then pretty much says in the next quote....

"This new 43nm SSD family balances VALUE/performance characteristics for its targeted consumer applications" (my emphasis on VALUE)

I'll wait for the benchmarks to get excited.
