128 GB SATA SSD Reviewed

http://www.pcstats.com/articleview.cfm?articleID=2212

Cheap it is not at~$4000 USD.
But at 128 GB, I think it represents one more stake in the heart of P2.

Fast, reliable, super low power, high capacity.
Anything you want left out? Oh yeah, cost...

Read and enjoy.

At the other end of the spectrum, I was in OfficeMax today and saw an 8GB SSD card for $99 - which would be more useful to some than an expensive 128 GB card (assuming the performance is adequate).

Comparisons to P2 probably don't matter much since Panasonic appears to be committed to that format.

Kevin, do not forget the commitment to SD/MMC.

I would not be surprised if the next offerings Pana has to make utilise this card format instead of or alongside P2. With AVCIntra being pushed, SD/MMC is more than capable.

Apples and oranges. The 128 GB product is a SATA hard drive replacement. Rather than video, it's targeted at high-performance database servers. Seek time for this class of drives is usually 0.1 ms, compared to the 8-11ms of a typical hard drive.

Another application is for music sample playback engines. No other user app bangs a hard drive harder. The storage size is still a bit small, but such a drive would provide almost limitless polyphony as needed for huge orchestrations as are often used in movie scores.

Seek time isn't such a big deal for video. Editors just need fast sequential streams.
