1.6 terabyte solid state drive drops my jaws

16tb-ultra320-scsi.jpgBiTMICRO has apparently forgotten what decade we hare in and gone straight to the Star Trek era of storage. Their Ultra320 SCSI SSD holds a whopping 1,600 gigabytes of data and has sustained data transfer rates of 230MB/sec. That’s Star Trek, people.

Too bad this thing is going to cost Star Trek prices too; a terabyte will run you about $250 now when you’re buying platters. Solid state media is probably five times more expensive (look at the MacBook Air), and something special like this, ten times more expensive.
