  • Adtron Solid State Disk?

    Anyone seen or heard much about this

    Supposed to be a SATA or IDE solid state disk (flash memory, in other words), in a 2.5" form factor, with up to 160 gB of storage!!!

    If I can find whre they sell them, I'm buying one!

    Unless, of course, that is the rumors about tens of thousands of dollars for the pricing is true...

    consumer isn't listed under their markets so not sure if they'd become available to the general public though it would be amazing if it was!

          That is funny, compared to the SanDisk, which came out in January with the 32 GB 1.8 SSD SATA 5000 for $600.00, and in March with the 32GB 2.5" SSD SATA 5000 for $350.00 for OEM systems builders with volume orders.

          No, wonder the huge price discrepancy between the SanDisk and Adtron. They provide industrial storage solutions for the Defense Department! Even though they are termed industrial, you still would pay $8337.00 more per SSD, even if you ordered over 100 drives.

          The 2.5 SanDisk performs better anyway!

          The SanDisk 1.8 32 GB SATA 5000 version features sustained reads of 62MB/sec, has and average access speed of 0.12 milliseconds a random read rate of 7000 inputs/outputs per second, and can boot Windows Vista Enterprise in 35 seconds.

          The SanDisk 2.5 32GB SATA 5000 version features sustained reads of 67MB/sec, has an average access speed of 0.11 milliseconds, a random read rate of 7000 inputs/outputs per second, and can boot Windows Vista Enterprise in 30 seconds.

          They are quick, 100 times faster than most hard disks, about 28 seconds faster than a garden-variety to boot Vista, and have minimal power requirements: just 0.9 watts during active operation compared to 1.9.

          I am just waiting for consumer release and a reasonable retail price. In the process of next generation TruckPC research anyway, but that is the way to go storage wise!

          P.S. Good price for that Samsung IDE (PATA), but I can hold out a little longer.

              I'm waiting for the 64 gB version. My music collection on my carPC is almost 30 gB, so 32 gB is too small. 64 will be perfect!
