  • Solid State HD!

    http://www.memtech.com/index.html

    This site had our answer, atleast for an OS drive. I cannot find a price but the solution is there.

    Last time I asked them for a quote, which I'll admit was a couple years ago, the drives were not for consumers and were running $15-$20k. They told me they were solely for military applications, with no consumer plan for the short term. There's a reason they don't quote a price on their site

      Solid state? Sounds like all other hard drives are powered by tubes

          These are going to be uber-expensive.
          They don't sell to consumers, but distributors of custom projects, like industrial computers and the like.
          Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
          How about the Wiki?

              fast enough? not really... plus you'll exceed the maximum number of rewrites eventually too

                ummm..no. you use EWF on any flash media to protect it from writes

                  That company even makes ejection seat hard drives. That survive 2000G's.

                    Sure you can run EWF, but doesn't this basically make the CF a static image? So you could be booting off a CD then if you really wanted to, and you don't get a swap drive or any write capability.

                        The drives you have posted are flash drives too. Same technology, same limitations, and most likely same level of read/write data transfers.
                        There are a cards that can do true 20 MBps and they are not expensive at all. On the other hands, fastest harddrives are badged ATA133, meaning they IDE interface can do 133 MBps, but due to physical limitations of drive mechanics they do about 35 MBps. Where is the difference?
                        TwinMOS 140x 1GB is beeing sold for some 59USD.
                        What else would you want??

                          You can make it so only the info you need is written to the disk. Also...a fast 2GB USB flash stick costs about $125...
