Computex Taipei 2011 - SSD was indeed a big thing at Computex this year with SATA III drives gaining more and more momentum as we see more and more companies jump on the SSD and SATA III bandwagon. If you're one of those people that whinge about SSD drives being too small well Memoright have come to the rescue.
Releasing a 800GB SATA II drive in the 2.5" format no longer do you have to worry about buying multiple drives to get massive amounts of storage. With In-Drive UPS, Security Erase and MLC NAND, the 800GB SSD looks like the perfect option for people who need speed, security and a large single drive.
Once formatted the drive comes in at 768GB and should offer users more than enough space to do anything they want. I do find myself drifting, though, and thinking how four of these in RAID 0 would go.
Price and availability is yet to be announced but while some feel they might have to give up a kidney to buy a 256GB SSD you're more than likely going to have to part with a few more organs for this 800GB beast.
