Samsung's Solid State Drive (SSD) is an advanced NAND flash-based solution for traditional storage, leveraging the company's longtime leadership in memory technology. This next-generation solution offers several advantages over rotating magnetic media such as significantly lower power consumption, remarkable ruggedness, high reliability, less weight and outstanding performance.

The SSD system is currently selling as an alternative high-end storage device for notebooks by many major PC manufacturers. The SSD's weight is less than that of a conventional hard drive, thus further increasing easy system portability. The device also uses significantly less power. This gives users more battery life.

Samsung's Solid State Drive performance is greater than traditional storage. In addition, random search times are the faster on the SSD, which is not subject to fragmentation and maintains its performance over time.

As a non-volatile storage device, the SSD has no moving parts such as the motor, disks and heads of a hard drive. Thus it eliminates spin-up time, seek time and rotational latency while delivering sustained high-speed data transfers. The SSD's lack of moving parts makes it noise-free and its ultra-low power consumption virtually eliminates heat emissions.

The SSD is also highly rugged, standing up to shock and vibration. These performance features make it well suited to a broad range of users. These include "road warrior" business professionals, as well as those in demanding military and industrial areas. Samsung designed the SSD's footprint to be interchangeable with a hard disk drive. Furthermore, because the SSD is form-factor agnostic, the flash components can be arranged to meet virtually any size or shape configurations.

At over £2/GB I would expect some confirmed and credible benchmarks on this product.

RAID0 = having two engines in a car running together, instead of one, but if one fails, both fail resulting twice the performance but at increased risk to your data.

So you could, if you had more money than sense put four of these in RAID0 :)

The Intel X25-M is faster and 80GB for about £20 more.

Any 1.8" versions for a decent price? Got a crappy dell that takes only that size. My HD is the bottleneck!

Now listed as £140.81 Inc VAT. Good price, especially if you have free delivery with AVForums.

Try picking up an Intel X18-M, that'd do the job nicely if you can find one.

Can't compete with Intel. At £100 price point they should be competitive.
