It's easy to get caught up with performance numbers, but NGFF is more than just performance increase. Many of the greatest features we couldn't even test on the road. Features like near instant resume from a deep sleep state, like on your cell phone when you hit the power button to wake up a device, and ultra low power states that extend battery life are two just off the top of my 7AM dizzy head come to mind.
Looking at the size itself, just a few millimeter compared to 7mm for the thinnest 2.5" form factor drive will aid in turning your ultrabook into a super book are the real benefits that will drive innovative designs moving forward.
Sadly, SanDisk positioned the A Series products on the OEM side, but there will be some channel cross over. Certain companies will still carry these products, but we're pushing for desktop variations for enthusiasts and prosumers. Companies like SanDisk value our opinions, but the OEM market is where the big checks come from. If you want the opportunity to be an early adapter of this truly next great revolution in storage, you need to make your voice heard.
At the bottom of this page is a comment system, let your voice come though because SanDisk and every other SSD manufacturer is watching. This technology is what I've personally waited for and the proof is in the pudding - it's here right now, but we need to let it be known the politics and red tape are only small obstacles.
The PCIe based NGFF from SanDisk is an excellent starting point that surpassed my expectations. Look for a full review in the coming weeks after we get back to a full testing lab. Till then, if your want to talk SSDs, then meet TweakTown at booth 900 at the Flash Memory Summit 2013.
