SSD is for notebook and desktop users

SanDisk has unveiled a new SSD today called the Ultra that is now shipping to retailers.

The Ultra SSD is sized to work in a notebook or a desktop computer and is designed for a drop-in upgrade to a machine for users. The SSD reads up to 280MB/s sequentially and up to 270MB/s sequential writes are supported. 
The drive has a mean time between failure rating of up to a million hours.

"Replacing a computer's hard disk drive with the SanDisk Ultra SSD is more cost effective than buying a new PC," said Kent Perry, director, product marketing, SanDisk. "Our new SSD delivers greater speed and reliability than a hard disk drive at an affordable price."

The SSD is offered in three capacities with a 60GB for $129.99, 120GB for $219.99, and a 240GB for $449.99. All three capacities are available right now in the U.S. and can be purchased from Newegg and other retailers.

Then I suppose you have few or only one PC.

The rest of us, wouldn't even imagine having a data store on a vulnerable windows PC client system.

That's just DUMB.

Indeed it is. It only worked for me for almost 20 years.

But we re talking about SSDs. So you're saying I should get a file server with traditional HDDs and then install SSDs on everything else?

I'm suggesting that is best, yes. Best because then all your computing devices have central access, because you have central backup capability, less risk without insecure apps running (like on a windows client PC), and it reduces the storage needs of the client systems enough that it makes SSDS viable /if/ you want to use them.

"The rest of us"? I don't see why you try to single him out, it's a fact most people store their stuff locally and it's completely dumb to try to put everything on the "cloud" too. A properly made local solution will be much faster and nearly as safe as anything you can find on the web.

We on DT aren't most people, and I was referring to network storage NOT a web/cloud.
