Might just be me....but those 4k IOPS are pretty low......I have raid 0 64GB SF-1222 drives right now and they completely destroy that. And that setup only cost me $200 :D

And I should add that RAID does not boost 4k numbers, so I would get the same out of a single drive for $100 (smallest stripe size is 4k size so no benefit)

[citation][nom]milktea[/nom]Wow, the Z-Drive is close to PC-133 SDRAM speed.[/citation]

Just without the whole volatile issue deal, issue, thing, ya...

Anyways, now is the time, we got the sizes and the speeds right, just time for the prices to get in tune, hopefully close to that nice $1/GB point.

The progress of this tech will continue at this speed until we get closer to current ram speeds. (Limit of silicon). Old HDD have mechaincal limit. Now SSD are limited by nothing, except silicon. Instant reboots, loading, and file transfer! yeaaahh

SSD's are so much less complicated then mechanical HDD. So cost should drop below mechanical HDD price. dont go for 1 a GB, ask for 10cent/GB!

in terms of raw materials, an SSD is much cheaper, those companies can easily charge $100 for a 500GB+ ssd and still make a good profit. They just charge crazy prices because it is more profitable kinda like charging $500 for a videocard that cost the same amount to make as as the mid range version of the same card (same GPU core just locked down and a few other limitations)

The cost of research and development have to be factored in. If you threw down however many millions of dollars it cost to do the the R&D, I'm sure they would be more than happy to sell it to you at the cost of the material.

[citation][nom]mayankleoboy1[/nom]thats blazing fast. just put 4 of these puppies in a raid 0[/citation]
two works just fine, there is to much room for error and problems if you decide to use 4 of them
