    Isn't that small enough to be classified as an SD card? :p

    So, they've basically took it upon themselves to re-brand CompactFlash as TrueSSD?

    What the hell?

    I think the big differents is Read/write circles. Havng longer life time then CF cards in an OS environment.

    Yes it seems that they are somehow optimised so that using a paging file does not kill them within minutes, a traditional CF would die when used with an IDE adaptor to boot windows.

    Seems funny that they're claiming to have achieved 'miracle' wonders of technical wizardry to shrink solid state to 1" when CFs have been around for over a decade. All they've done is written some clever firmware by the sounds of it.

    There is a physical difference as (IIRC) compact flash uses NOR chips, where as SSDs use NAND

    This makes sense.

    It also makes the whole thing a lot less impressive.



    And it was never really impressive to begin with.
