    I'm relatively certain that we've been using rotating glass disks to store our data for quite a long time now...

    Whilst those results are a little underwhelming, this looks rather promising for the future :D

    Did I miss it or were there no power usage tests? That'd be nice to see imo specifically in our more power concious society :)

    No real point on a desktop system since it was designed for a notebook. We were testing it as an alternative for performance, rather then something for a low power solution. I may throw it in the EPIA testing I'm doing at the moment to see if I can get a really really low power desktop.

    How would you accurately measure the power usage of a device with no power lead? ;)

    - The laptop to standard PATA adaptor that I presume has been used would split the drive's connector to 40 pin IDE and a standard molex...

    Mine does at least....

    Yep, but in a desktop system just changing the CPU, graphics card or motherboard type will completely negate any effect of a single hard drive. In a 30W EPIA system it can make a significant difference to heat, noise and power.

    I bet this would be amazing in a 360, I really am curious to see the review for the notebook

    I'm not sure but "trusted reviews" did an article on this and I think by Mr. Swinburne (strange how he recycles..). In it, was a 6 to 8 page briefing on the note book preformance of this piece of korean hib-hob.

    It was done by Riyad Emeran TR's editor-in-chief... Rich had nothing to do with it...

    The SSD fitted Vaio review will be available HERE on Monday when the link becomes active.

    The non-SSD review is HERE

    Some disks still use metal.

    but the glass ones make a cooler noise when a laptop is dropped 6 meters.. :D

    Ed Chester did a TR review of it a few weeks ago, I'm doing a different review of it now. Someone at TR is doing the SSD Sony (different SSD in it) review for Monday. No recycling done.

    And any chance you could spell my name correctly, it IS there under 20,000+ posts. :)

    Yea, thats how it's usually done. Also test for heat on idle and load.

    I was expecting these tests. Lots of people make silent PCs and HTPCs and are really hoping SSD draw little wattage and produce little heat, so knowing actual numbers would be nice.

    Will you guys update the article?
