Samsung 32GB Solid State Drive Review
Patrick "MACMAC" MacMillan
Solid state drives have been making headlines all year, and no other company has been as supportive of this new technology as Samsung, the world's largest memory chip manufacturer. Bit-Tech has just posted a review of the Samsung 32GB solid state drive, sporting a surprisingly old ATA-66 interface.
Heres what they had to say:
For the shy side of £300 it's a huge investment for very little performance gain, unless you have a very small amount of system memory, in which case I suggest you spend a fraction of the cost of an SSD on a memory upgrade instead. A Western Digital Raptor hard drive coupled with enough system memory will offer an overall better, and cheaper experience.
If you look past the price and the capacity, it should be clear that this is the technology of the future. With memory prices constantly decreasing, and capacity increasing at a healthy pace, the time has come for solid state drives. Obviously, the adoption will begin in the mobile sector first, but there will inevitably be high-performance models that satisfy the demanding needs of the enthusiast community.
