Samsung has revealed what it dubs the "industry's first" one-terabyte solid-state drive in the compact mSATA form factor. From what we know of the SSD landscape, their claim is an honest one – by over a factor of two, seeing as how 480GB mSATA SSDs from Crucial and a few others are the most capacious such drives available in the …
Crucial currently sell a 960GB for £371?
(It's advertised at £432, until you try to buy, then it shows a discount).
Isn't that a plain old laptop SATA drive. This is mSATA and a fraction of the size. The largest capacity mSATA on the crucial.com website is 480GB for $329.99 or £242.39 inc. VAT in the UK.
OMFGWTFBBQ. I have the Micron/Crucial 960GB SSD in my "desktop" (Alienware MX18). It's so stupid fast it [censored] the [censored] and [really, a goat?] with added [I can't unthink that]!!!
Basically can't live without them, now. OTOH, I have a Samsung 240GB mSATA that I'm tossing into my Lenovo x230, we'll see how that goes...
Open the box
Last time I looked Crucial's mSata and 2.5” form factor units display exactly the same specs at each capacity. I do suspect that the 2.5” form factor is just a 9mm box providing mSata to full SATA interface. Why produce two electronics designs when one will do?
so... someone could put a raid interface or similar on two of these and connect a SATA connector and thus produce a 2tb drive that's still less than 9mm thick and so would fit in my PS4 ?
the only downside being that it'd probably cost many multiples of the cost of the PS4 in the first place, but still...
