Solid State Disk Drives this [2007-10-15]

Tom's Hardware has a piece on a new type of storage. Solid-state drives (SSD) seems the way to go. What I miss from the review is a more subjective opinion on how it affects normal use; Tom's reviews tends to focus only on the numbers. All aspects except random write seems better with SSD.

SanDish SSD

More about the disks at SanDisk. Their whitepapers are not fantastic reading (just a bit biased you could say), but still something with more detail. Tom says a SSD with 32 GB will cost about $400 at the moment.
