[The Chosun Ilbo, September 12 2007] Samsung Starts Shipping Flash Hard Drives for PCs

Samsung Electronics has started cultivating a new Flash memory market by producing large-capacity solid-state drives. The company said Tuesday it started shipping 2.5-inch 64GB SSDs to the world’s second largest PC maker Dell. The new drives will be installed in Dell’s premium notebooks, which will go commercial late this year. Unlike existing hard disc drives, SSDs use a Flash chip as a storage device and lack a motor and operating device, so they do not generate heat and noise while operating and boast improved shock-resistance.
