    It seems like nothing new. The largest are still 256GB, nothing larger,
    nothing really cheaper. When can I expect a reliable 512GB ssd drive?

    I'm thinking maybe in the next year as its still kind of technology in development

    I would love to see a SSD that size myself i would use one. 256 is just not enough


    I would keep a look out over the next year, i think we could see one in summer 2010 or maybe earlier

    And jesus i bet a 512 would be thousands haha

    SSD will get rolling once major Hard Drive manufactures like WD, Seagate, etc start mass producing.

    I thought I saw a sony vaio with a carbon-fiber case and 512GB SSD already in it, retailing for $4699 under the limited edition section of their webpage...

    I think the flash industry has been saturated with everything flash-equiped doubling in capacity every now and then... Ipods, iphones, cell phones, camera cards. They concentrate more on producing enough cheap memory than evolving the current designs.

    and seens as normal hardrives are what most users are buying

    the companies are probs not seeing much of a point in starting the mass producing of them yet. I think late 2010

    There's a 1TB SSD available but it's roughly 3000 USD.

    More of a "hey we're the first to manafacture a 1TB SSD!" SSD rather than an actual retail SSD.
