Default Any good place to buy cheap Solid State Disk Drives?

Hey all

Curious, does anyone know places online that offer good prices on solid state disk drives?

I've stumbled upon these "disk drives" just recently. They sound like what i'm looking for. But I only find them at expensive prices.

Thanks

All I seen on prices on solid state hard drives is around $2000 to $100000 in US dollars. The capacity ranges from 1 gigabytes to 75 gigabytes but these are designed for "Very long-term" replacements for magnetic hard drives.

Look up E-Disk

Cool! Thanks a bunch

These things are really expensive! I'm only looking for something around 2 gigs. Enough for a windows installation and a little more

It won't be to long until they drop down to $500 US dollars or even $100 US dollars.

Solid state hard disk increases the computer speed by about four times or more. Also they last about 10 years under server conditions. Under desktop or workstations they can last even more.

People think that overclocking their computers increases speed. As the processor's speed increases the magnetic hard drives still be at the same speed no matter how much you tweak your computer. The most bottleneck device in the computer is the hard drive.

Hmm I'll have to think about it. What brand/model is the drive?


hope you don't mind, but I removed your email address above. webcrawlers can pickup your address and start sending you email you probably won't want

You can reply here if you want, or use the email button below.
It's a safer way to send out email
