  1. My laptop's hard disk is only 500 GB. I want to buy a 1 TB portable hard disk. Can anyone tell me the best and price.
  2. Hi forum. I'm looking to buy the mentioned controller. One online shop (I'd rather not tell ) offers the non-Dell version of the controller for 700 USD and the Dell version for 480 USD. The specifications look similar. Both are based on the LSISAS2208 chip and both have two SFF-8087 ports. The Dell version specifies model: 403-BBEL. The non-dell is the standard LSI model: LSI00331. Apart from the model and the price, I see no difference. I suspect that the Dell version may have some limitations because of the reduced price, but it is difficult for me to guess what those might be since my experience with cards of this type is limited. I plan on purchasing the cachecade module (ssd cache) along side the controller. Thus, if the Dell controller does not support cachecade, ill go with the more expensive one. Have you encountered a similar "deal" in the past? What do they usually entail? How can I figure out what the differences are short of emailing the shop and asking them (I have already done that). If the answer can be found on the manufacturers site (LSI and Dell), then any points on what to look for are welcome. If the difference lies in the return policy and warranty, I'm willing to take the chance. I can guess that "KIT" vs "non-KIT" pertains to included cables in the raid-controller market. Dell version: LSI version:
  3. Does it seem like SSD progress is beginning to level off? Most current SSDs remain MLC planar, at around 16-20nm in size. There's a few value-oriented TLC SSDs as well. But at some point, it is looking like the die shrinks are going to start levelling off. Perhaps maybe ~10nm is the end? Does it seem like 3D NAND too is no easy solution over planar? It does seem like Samsung in particular is stuck at 40nm for now with 3D NAND for at least the next couple of generations, and I'd imagine the other vendors would encounter similar technical difficulties. It may very well be that the benefits were somewhat overhyped. It's not clear I think whether it will scale down very well past 40nm either. Performance-wise, I think we are seeing NVMe drives start to enter the market. Whether that will impact much save the high end though remains open to debate. So is that it, are we seeing SSD performance level off then? Likewise, is the rate of price drop going to level off as well in terms of rate of cost declines in cost:gb?
