Adtron 160GB flash HDD
As the prices of flash memory continue to fall, drives such as Adtron's new 160GB Flashpak become more practical. It's a 2.5-inch solid-state disc, and is available with either IDE or SATA connections. Its most impressive aspect is of course its speed, since the SATA version can read and write at 65 and 55MB/s, while the IDE drive is even faster at 70 and 60MB/s. The disc also comes with Adtron's EraSure Clear and Sanitize programs to enable government-level security. Because it's targeted at professionals, interested parties must contact Adtron directly.
