    A-DATA has just become the next memory manufacturer to announce solid state products branded under its name. A-DATA's brand new XPG 2.5-inch SSDs are available in 32GB/64GB/128GB/192GB capacities and use SATA 3Gbps high-speed interface and an extra built-in mini-USB 2.0 port for external operation. A-DATA claims the drives are guaranteed to achieve transfer rates of up to 170MB/s read and 100MB/s write. In addition, A-DATA’s SSDs provide built-in ECC (Error Correction Code) that ensures highly reliable data transfer and increases the system integrity. The mean time between failure for these drives is estimated at 1,500,000 hours. For more information, please read the company's official press release here.

    1 500 000 / 24 /365 = 171 years , but it is more likely they tested 300 SSD drives for a 6 month period and only one fails. So estimated life for 1 random SSD drive shall be 171 years.

    I really honestly don't care that much about SSD performance, if only they could get prices anywhere near that of a normal HDD. If they just made some low-spec (roughly on par with standard 7200 RPM HDD), high-capacity SSD's for just a tad more than a standard HDD, I'd be all over 'em.

    edit: I just want a silent high-capacity drive pretty much.
