    It's added to my list - that is my 'if I won the lottery' list.

    You'd have to have more money than sense to buy one at those prices.

    Surely you would only want a SSD if you were planning on using it as a boot drive? So why not go for the cheaper HDD on a normal USB if you're running it externally?

    Useful if you have something to just chuck in your bag, it is solid state so significantly lower change of anything going wrong.

    Hmmmm, not too convinced by the use of this unless capacity for SSD's go up considerably and the costs go down a lot too! For your average Joe this will be about 5 years away until it becomes the norm!

    Does anyone else see standard SATA connectors with a cap over them? Or is it just me?

    I suppose it should be faster than the existing hi-capacity flash drives, so you can fill it in less than a lifetime.
    And similarly the portability argument is a bit lost on many users because of how much you will lose if it gets stolen/lost.

    but we still wonder how many ADATA will shift.

    Not many until you tell us how fast it is, I suspect.

    Pretty cool but the only benefit I see is it being shock proof

    Useful for spies in the movies that have to copy something from a computer while the bad guy is distracted.
