    Flash Phobes-Must read-SNDK 3rd Gen

    As usual there has been a lot of talk by the flash phobes about the improvements in the SNDK third GEN SSD (C25-G3).

    You might want to take a peak at this recent (1/8/09) independent analysis:

    http://www.theregister.co.uk/2009/01/08/sandisk_notebook_flash/

    I know many of you flash phobes are in LA-LA land and can't handle the truth, so here are some key points from this analysis:

    "The implication of this is that these SSDs won't improve the performance of newer notebook computers, ones less than three years old. Also new notebook prices are coming down and a $499 240GB SSD upgrade cost doesn't look cheap when compared to current low-end notebooks so there is an effective capacity limitation here as well as a restriction to older notebooks. It means that the upgrade is practically restricted to notebooks three years old or more and with hard drive capacity of 60GB or less - pretty crap machines really - whose owners don't want to upgrade to a new entry level notebook running Vista.

    This announcement in no way represents a threat to hard drive sales to notebook OEMs in the same way that yesterday's modular flash announcement by SanDisk represented a distinct drive into netbook flash use.

    We need another one or two generations of this notebook flash before notebook HDD use is threatened."

    WAKE UP & SMELL THE COFFEE, FLASH PHOBES!

    LOSSES FOR MANY YEARS TO COME!
