Robeson and Microsoft's technology never made it. NAND cache became DOA. But at the Flash Memory Summit this week, there is a lot of talk about NAND cache. Many agree it's very complex. ''How do you sell it to consumers?'' asked one expert. Thoughts out there?

Rick - As you mentioned, there have been a few attempts at NVM Caching for PC's. Each one of these suffered from one or more of the following "requirements" for effective caching: 1. you need to have sufficient cache capacity - 16GB is a good sweet spot for client/PC computing 2. your cache device (small SSD) must be sufficiently faster than your HDD (No thumbdrives or SD cards) 3. you need intelligent software to manage the cache algorithms and policies
