The US economy begins to heal
Mirage in the SMP

Fast and flaky

Tom's Hardware:

SandForce said on Tuesday that it's currently demonstrating the use of its latest SF-2000 series SSD controller with Toshiba’s new 24-nm MLC Toggle Flash memory in a 2.5-inch SSD form factor. The union is producing balanced read and write speeds up to 500 MB/s and up to 60,000 IOPS with Toshiba's memory operating at 166 MT/s.

I read in a forum that one guy ordered two hundred solid state disks from OCZ which used the SandForce controller. Twenty were DOA! That 10% failure rate is way too high for such a premium product.

Let's see what Intel will release in the near future for their drives are known to have the best reliability.
