    Mikey the Moron: You Forgot to Note These Points

    Hey Mikey our Hopeless Cut and Paste Moron, you forgot some things.

    1. You might want to check out an article this month in InfoWorld titled:

    "Test your SSDs or risk massive data loss, researchers warn"

    BTW, the researchers were from Ohio University and HP labs.

    2. A report out of UCSD stating that:

    Speaking to about 500 attendees at the 10th Usenix Conference on File and Storage Technologies one year ago, Laura Grupp, a graduate student at the University of California, San Diego, said that as NAND flash densities increase, so do issues such as read and write latency and data errors.

    While the density of SSDs grows and the cost per gigabyte shrinks, "everything else about them is poised to get worse," Grupp said.

    3. Why have the share prices of the SSD firms (OCZ, STEC, FIO) far under performed the share prices of the hard drive companies?

    Think about it you moron!

    • Yes if you look at the share prices of the solid stage storage firms: STEC, FIO, an OCZ they are down 40% to 80% over the past 6 months, while the hard drive firms are up 20%. What does that tell you?

      The problems with SSD only increase as you go beyond the 22nm mode, making future cost reductions iffy at best.

      Thanks for bringing some objectivity to this board. It is truly a breath of fresh air compared to the SFB pumper Mike.
