Largest Capacity SSD on market?

A-DATA 512GB XPG 2.5" SSDCeBit is now in full swing and hardware manufacturers are announcing their latest and greatest developments. A-Data have come up with a new Solid State Drive (SSD), which they claim has the largest capacity in the industry. With data transfer rates of transfer rate up to 230MB/s read and 160MB/s write, the 512GB XPG 2.5” SSD is said by A-Data to be 'designed for notebook and PC enthusiasts seeking both fast transfer rates and high capacity'.

But hang on, there does seem to be a problem with A-Data's claim to have the largest SSD on the market. It seems that Toshiba already developed a 512GB SSD back in December, 2008. We are not sure why A-Data feel they have achieved a first here but they were keen to point it out in their press release:

Taipei, Taiwan – March 3, 2009 - A-DATA® Technology Co., Ltd., a worldwide leading manufacturer in high performance memory products, today announced it has launched the highest capacity of SSD in the industry at CeBIT 2009, the 512GB XPG™ 2.5” SSD. The 512GB XPG™ 2.5” SSD is designed for notebook and PC enthusiasts seeking for both fast transfer rate and high capacity SSD.
