This is one of those that does not make any sense & my gut instinct saids its a lie. Its also something thats to good to be true.
1 One gigabit is not that much memory.
2 The flash I have used was slow even on USB 2.
3 Normal Flash rewrite cycles is very short compared to a HD's.
Ram for cache made sense as it is fast & big, flash does not make much sense here or just does not add up right. I know its only the write buffer but there would have to be cases where this would hurt you, like gaming or working on big data bases or work stations.
From what I read in the past I expected to have something like 3D hologram storage by now. Only moving part would be a mirror. Only HD's keep getting better or & bigger. Orginally HD's did not change much & we really did need more storage & the HD's still did not change much. Then other media started getting better then HD's also started getting better, so much so that I believe that believe HD's are holding us back from the next best storage solution. We went from vacuum tubes to magnet cores to tape drives, now disk drives & its time to move on.
