As I recall, flash drives support a relatively limited number of read/ write cycles for each bit. Is effort being expended in the driver design to ensure that the read / write cycles are spread across the media or are failed bits / blocks simply detected and mapped out?

That's an interesting point, Baolt- about Samsung being late into SSDs. I am not sure Seagate has the technology lead either in this respect. BTW, I'm curious about your laptop model.. which one is that?

During computex i saw many examples of SSDs, but none was samsung rooted. Intel or Sandisk. For sure Samsung is big brother, now with Seagate stronger yet they are delayed for SSD market. I have a new laptop with ssd and mad about its speed, no noise, no heat trouble, very slim and lightweight. What SSD would bring to server market...No Taa-Das in short term for sure. However while capacities grow, speeds increase, we will see faster webpages, swift solution servers, feasible cloud computing, less energy consumption more green, less noise at server boxes and happy technicians let say in 3 year time latest.
