256 GB Solid State Disk announced by Samsung

So far solid state disks (SSD) were (and still are) expensive and have relatively small capacity. This is about to change. Samsung has announced that is has developed fast, 2.5" SSD with 256 GB capacity.




Disk is very compact in size, 100.3 x 69.8 x 9.5 mm. Interface used is SATA II  and should have sequential read speed of 200 MB/sec and write speed is 160 MB/sec. Mean time between failures is 1 M hours (over 115 years) with power consumption of 0.9 W in active mode.

Production is expected to start before end of year for 2.5" model. So far there are no indications of price for this little gem...
