The Adtron products deliver sustained read/write performance in the 70MB/sec range, delivering the solid state industry's best performance and far exceeding the capabilities of rotating media (HDDs).
That statement is untrue because SCSI 320 Ultra 15K rpm hard drives churn out 90-120MB/s sustained and 320MB/s burst...

Maxtor, Seagate, Fujitsu (and some others) all make some outstanding 15K rpm monsters that beat this. However when it comes to average seek time any solid state would win out but when they describe sustained reads the rotational drives still beat them out.

how many of those super high end 15k drives are there in laptops? this is a 2.5inch drive not 3.5.

Advanced tech VS first generation.
Very good start imho.

No, more like usb thumb drives.


I'd love to see what a couple of these could do in a RAID0.

I called to get a price quote but Kevin was only filling in for the receptionist so I will have to call back later, will post prices when I find out : )

Ok guys here it is.
First off there are three versions of each the SATA (A25FB-20) and IDE (I25FB-20) drives from above. The -20's are 9.5mm high, -21's are 16mm high, and -22's are 22mm high. Which basically leaves the -20's for laptops.
-20 = up to 32gb
-21 = up to 96gb
-22 = up to 160gb
Now pricing <shiver> (pricing is the same for IDE and SATA)
32gb = $2500 (retail)
120gb = $12029 (retail)
160gb = $15006 (retail)

YES that is fifteen thousand six dollars!
