Samsung launches 128GB SSD drives for laptops

Samsung on Wednesday said it has started mass production of a 128-gigabyte solid-state drive, which is offered as an alternative to more power-hungry hard disk drives. The SSD is being produced in two sizes, 1.8 inches and 2.5 inches. In addition, Samsung started producing this month a 64GB model of the new SSD. High-capacity SSDs are meant to satisfy the storage requirements of most business users and PC enthusiasts, the company said in a statement. While hard-disk drives are available in much larger storage capacities, SSDs are more rugged, deliver faster boot and application startup times, and consume less power that HDDs. The Samsung devices use 0.2 watts in standby mode and 0.5 watts in active mode.

While SSDs have their advantages, the components are also considerable more expensive than HDDs. Depending on the storage capacity, they can add several hundred dollars to the price of a notebook. The new Samsung SSDs have a write speed of 70 megabytes per second and a read speed of 90MB per second. The 128GB SSD lasts about 20 times longer than the typical four- to five-year lifespan of a notebook hard drive, Samsung said. Samsung plans to begin production of a 256GB SSD at the end of this year. The company is aggressively pursuing the SSD market, believing it will increase in terms of unit sales by 800% between now and 2010.

    why not just use a 50Gig ssd for system drive (the OS and applications/ games) and use a couple 1Tb hardrives for storage

    @ 3

    I do something like that currently. I got an 150Gb WesternDigital Raptor (10.000 rpm) for Windows partition and other two 500 Gb Seagate’s in raid for other two partitions.

    This is fooking great. As flash memory prices drop and speed increases, we’ll soon forget about those nasty hard drives, the last survivor of the first PC design.

    So, how many tens of thousands of dollars will it cost?

    I love how they say you get power savings.

    Toms Hardware has an article that has data showing that Solid state drives give you less battery life since Flash SSDs Only Know Two Power States

    You know you will pay a premium for any new technology. Wait a year or two and you’ll pay a more reasonable price. Those are nice specs. I wonder if database servers will switch over to this drive technology. What’s the connector type – SATA?

    @Zort:

    Read the comments on that article; a lot of people disagree, and some aren’t convinced by their tests.

    “The Samsung devices use 0.2 watts in standby mode and 0.5 watts in active mode.”

    Now go to tomshardware (link above) and check Idle and Load on page 14.

    It’s safe to say that power consumption is not an issue anymore with these new drives from Samsung.

    It has begun…

    It will be around $500 not $10,000 you fool.

    That’s an incredible reduction in price for this tech.

    These drives are already re-packaged by OCZ.

    The 64GB is still $700+, this will probably be $2k
