Samsung puts 128 GB SSDs into mass-production Samsung SSD
 
One of the world leaders in digital technology, Samsung, are reportedly ready to enter mass production of 1.8” and 2.5” multi-level cell (MLC)-based solid state drives (SSD) with 64 and 128 GB storage capacity. Samsung has also promised that their SSD's will have an attractive pricing; and subsequently be within reach of more consumers. According to the source article, Samsung's new SSD's promise a read speed of 90 MB/s which puts it behind single-level-cell (SLC)-based SSDs and Western Digital's 3.5" Velociraptor
 
Samsung claims that the 128 GB SSD, which is built from 64 MLC NAND flash memory chips of 16 Gb each, is energy efficient at 0.2 watts in standby mode and 0.5 watts in active mode. Probably most interesting is the drive’s expected life: Samsung claims the drives will last 20 times longer than the average 4-5 years of hard drives – which would mean that the SSD is rated at 80-100 years.
 
Samsung's 64 GB and 128 GB MLC SSDs are aimed at “business users and many PC enthusiasts”, and prices should reflect this market. Just don't expect value PC pricing yet.

Well i had a big party at my house that i threw. Since i live out in the sticks on unrestricted land (Along with everybody else out here) we had loads of fireworks and loud music. For one final time before being packed and sold i set up the full PA and music gear. Even though i left some of my stuff at my friends house its still pretty impresive. For anybody who wants to take a gander at the pics and movie (no sound :( ) i have a public album.

The fireworks shot idk why (guess to much alcohol at the time lol) but i took the shot before they put all the fireworks in the truck. When all of them we purhcased where out there the back of the truck was full and our show lasted about 3 hours once the sun went down.
