First 1TB 2.5 Inch SSD

PureSilicon Inc. has announced the World's first One Terabyte 2.5 inch Solid State Drive (SSD). They are calling it the Nitro Series. Benchmark speed testing give the drive a maximum transfer speed approaching 300mb/s, though not quite reaching it. You could put four of these drives in a standard 3.5 inch hard disk drive (HDD). This represents an important milestone in solid state drives.

"pureSilicon Inc. is demonstrating the highest-density SSD available today: the 1TB Nitro Series. This represents a major advance for the storage industry since it combines maximum density with high performance and low power demand. Four of these drives deliver 4TB in the same space as a standard 3.5-inch HDD, so server footprint requirements and energy consumption in data-intensive applications can be considerably reduced."
