    Sun Microsystems and Samsung developed a solid-state drive (SSD) NAND Flash chip (the chips that go into making a SSD) which is based on the single-level cell NAND Flash design (better performance than MLC). Compared to other brands' memory, this part claims to provide a five-fold increase in write-and-erase data cycles, up to 5-10 million read-write-cycles. This makes the device an enterprise-friendly, ready for use in servers-grade SSDs. Samsung claims that this component provides 100-fold increases over conventional hard drives, in terms of the number of data transfers (input/output per second or I/OPS) per watt (Price / Performance, in other words). The new memory could be used for video streaming, high-transaction data processing, search engine operations and other high-speed server functions.

    now THIS is what will make SSD's take off, the durability of mechanical drives.

    thats what it should read, with the price of current offerings Ultra_Expensive is what it will be, but definately a step in the right direction as far as development is concerned

    i cant see ssd being mainstream for AT LEAST another 5-10 years

    Neeh, in AT MOST 2 - 3 years they will became mainstream, don't worry. Imagine 3 years ago 1 GB flash was the same price as a 32 GB those days :ohwell:
