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. Features - Read Speed of 90MB/s - Write Speed of 70MB/s - Onboard Cache - Samsung Controller - Ideal for laptops as these are bare drives (No casing)

Looks like a bargin to me !

Looking at the state of the hard drive market it wouldn't be sensible to buy for a PS3, but it would be interesting to see if it would work.

I know it's already been mentioned in the deal description but it's worth re-iterating here in the discussion where I can do this...

[color=green][size=5]Be aware that these come as seen in the picture and do not have any casing, unlike the previous Samsung MLC/SLC deals. You'll need to handle these with a lot more care in order to avoid zapping them with static build up.[/size][/color]

What would be the advantages of using this in a PS3? I thought the point to having one of these was that they don't have moving parts, and PS3s aren't exactly portable...

Aparently Ps3's don't perform any better with a SSD drive, acording to reports on the web. Shame.

I was thinking heat issues.

The point of SSDs is their low access time meaning that everything feels more responsive and where seek time is the issue (such as for small programs) loads faster. They're not particulaly durable or power efficient compared to a hard disk for the price.

At this price I'd suspect this is an older generation SSD so expect slower transfer rates and higher power consumption than a hard disk.

But whether one would have any effect on the PS3 I'd have no idea, someone with knowledge of the inner working of a PS3 would have to answer that.
