As always it comes down to price. Without the price I won't get too excited about it and especially so if it is ridiculously priced.
Yeah Okay!!! Not for that!!!!
Anywhere between $6000-$7000 screw that....
I remember when 1GB SCSI-II drives (full height no less - none of this 12.5mm junk) were selling for around $1,000. And not all that long ago - 1997. So by that scale, a 256GB drive would have cost $250,000 or so. $5,950 / $250,000 = 2.4% in other words this drive is 42x cheaper per GB.
I'll take 50! yah right....
But seriously, it's fantastic to see that they even make drives like this. I mean 0.1 ms seek???? thats fast. and 50-65GB /sec transfer rate - that smokes practically any drive out there assuming it can keep it up over a good stretch of time. It's only a matter of time until we all have this tech in our notebooks.
