Check Out The SanDisk 800GB Lightning SSD

In the world of technology, hardware continues to shrink in size while double in capacity. SanDisk has just launched two new Lightning ranges of solid state drives with capacities that range from 100GB all the way up to 800GB.

The SanDisk Lightning drives ranges include three SLC flash drives with capacities of 100GB, 200GB, and 400GB. The 200GB, 400GB, and 800GB have three MLC (multi-level cell) flash drives. There is also a 2.5″ and 3.5″ standard form factor that has been designed to integrate with current SAS enterprise storage and server systems.

Samsung Rolls Out Dual-Platter 1TB HDD

Samsung has recently introduced a new 1TB hard drive in a 2.5″ form-factor. Now, there are already quite a few of these capacity hard drives in a similar form factor, but Samsung is the first to do it a 9mm, as opposed to the usual 12.5mm design.

The extra-thin hard drive platters allow for a more efficient two platter design instead of 3, allowing Samsung to do more with less space. If the computer manufacturer decided to go with a larger hard drive, it could have enabled a much larger capacity on the drive.

Buffalo’s Powerful 512GB SATA III SSD

Buffalo has just rolled out a brand new 512GB SATA III solid state drive this week, set to launch in the Japanese market. The SSD-N512S/MC400 is capable of read speeds up to 405MB per second. The company is also set to launch a 256GB version of the SSD called the SSD-N256S/MC400.

The 256GB version will be priced just under $900 USD, with the 512GB version around $1,600. No word yet on whether or not there will be availability, worldwide, but do realize that these are state-of-the-art (pun intended), solid state drives.
