    Lee, If I remember right, this Intel M25 has no Trim. Is that correct ?

    According to some reports production prices should fall by approximately 50% this year.
    Perhaps, but there always seems to be a war, or natural disaster that wipes out a factory somewhere that causes prices to either increase or fail to drop as expected.

    I think I have the same Intel. It was from Dane Elec and was the cheapest option at the time. I use it now in an enclosure for experiments - e.g. for installing Linux on an external device. Originally it was in a Vista machine which did not have Trim anyhow.

    I got 5 of these obsolete hardware. 1 kingston on my daughter' s pc ( also the htpc), 1 crucial and 3 samsungs on my pc.
    How come these obsolete stuffs don't go down on clearance prices?

    I'll believe it when I see it.

    I suspect that manufacturers will just drop drives with capacities <200 GB.

    If you go to the trouble to actually read the Dissertation, you will discover that nowhere does the PhD candidate actually say "obsolete"; that wording is the invention of the blogger -- a Consultant.

    The PhD candidate goes on further to indicate that the prototype they built was sufficient "for the dissertation" (given that it was read-only).

    In my view, something is "obsolete" under two circumstances. First, its function is no longer needed -- as in buggy whips when buggies are not commonplace anymore. Second, its function has been entirely replaced by an alternative -- such as DVRs replacing videotape recorders to save TV shows. Nothing in the dissertation indicates either of these to be the place. They build a limited-function prototype that implements only some of the functions of an SSD, and they admit that real-world situation is a lot more complex and has yet to be solved.

    To me, this is yet another sorry instance of a blogger using hyperbole to get attention. After all, if his article had been entitled "Research indicates possible new directions in managing flash-based storage", it wouldn't have got much attention!

    Something like this may replace all of storage known up to now and is just one of newly proposed and researched technologies that offer some promise: Memristor - What Are Memristors? or even maybe: Harvard cracks DNA storage, crams 700 terabytes of data into a single gram | ExtremeTech

    . . .Don't know what he said, albeit it was stated so beautifully it had to be true. . .

I have a dual boot system with two SSDs, with Windows 8.1 on one and Build 10240 on the other. At this stage I am confused by all the Microsoft posts about upgrading. Will I be able to upgrade to the new Build on the 29th on my Build 10240...

Solved SSDs detected as CF?
I have 5 drives installed on my PC (1 HDD and 4 SSDs, the rest are just partitions). I am just wondering what does CF means on 2 of the SSDs. Does it stand for "compact flash"? How to fix this? Or should I just leave it alone? 6911
