Samsung 256gb ssd

One of the leaders in semiconductor technology - announced last month that it has begun mass producing 256 gigabyte (GB) solid state drives for use in notebooks and desktop PCs. With the addition of the high-speed 256GB drive, Samsung now offers the most extensive line of SSDs in the industry with 8, 16, and 32GB SSDs for low-density designs and 64, 128 and 256GB alternatives for the higher densities.

The new 256GB SSD more than doubles the performance rates of Samsung 64GB and 128GB SSDs to become the SSD with the highest overall performance in the personal computer
industry, combining sequential read rates of 220MB per second with sequential write rates of 200MB per second. This sharply narrows the performance gap between read and write operations to only 10 percent, compared to a read-write speed difference of between 20 and 70 percent for other SSDs. In addition, erase cycles are a rapid 100GBs per minute, allowing the entire drive to be re-written much faster, when needed.

The Samsung 256GB SSD expedites data transfer when large multimedia files are simultaneously read and stored. It can store 25 high-definition movies in just 21 minutes, a significant advancement over a 7200rpm HDD, which takes about 70 minutes. Furthermore, the 256GB SSD launches applications ten times faster than the fastest 7200 rpm notebook HDD. If Toshiba and Micron started on the SSD road it's time for Samsung to join the party.

Although Samsung has begun mass production of the hard drive, we are still waiting for the price. Stay tuned for the updates on this.

Why the PS3 is so Great

Well! The Nintendo’s and Apple’s of this world can wait. Sony keeps arriving with a bang each time and subtly mars any of their chances. Again, this time with the gaming console PS3 or playstation 3, Sony has come up just the perfect way. The PS3 has completely caught the imagination of masses and the gaming console is fast turning people into islands. Most of them just need this unique piece in their hand and the rest of the world might go to the dogs for all they care. Funny! The way the playstation gets stuck in our psyche. Now the PS3 is completely blessed with graphic interfaces and multimedia capabilities. The multimedia-enabled videos open a different world in the gaming consoles. The playstation 3 revolutions can be gauged by the download statistic associated with it. Portals are having a field day. There are a sizeable amount of them and each is making tidy business letting people download games on to their PS3. Now few cautions: while downloading on to your PS3,

never go for a peer-to-peer file sharing program. It introduces a lot of malware and Trojans and also the quality of download is debatable. Downloading from an authentic portal is just the right idea. It may take an initial subscription fee but that is only a one time fee with no further hidden costs. With each extra download on to PS3, the cost per download effectively minimizes. There are many ways to get a free PS3. Let’s understand one of them. Register with a free PS3 site and insert a genuine shipping address so that they may send your PS3 to the right place. Now Sony is fighting home brew battles and though it is sincerely upgrading the firmware for playstation 3, each time it is outsmarted by hackers. Hackers do not like themselves being called pirates. They believe that Sony fundamentally denies its user the highest pleasure that can be drawn through PS3. Its aim is to profit and hence it does not open all the locks to the hardware as it might enhance manufacturing costs. The PS3 homebrew wizards simply run unassigned codes in the hardware and enable a lot more multimedia features in the unit. The users suddenly feel a new PS3 breathing within the old one. The only issue is that your warranty will be annulled by Sony if you use any of the modified codes for your PlayStation 3. The PS3 hardware is strong enough to be used in supercomputers and other advanced computing models. Sony has introduced system software and the update can be downloaded from playstation network. The Playstation 3 has outsold Xbox 360 since sometime in the middle of the year 2007. The dreaded red rings of the Xbox have already fuelled a lot of buyer apprehension towards it. As of now, Playstation 3 is not suffering from any hardware reverses. Free PS3’s are up for grabs. Just make hay while Sony is shining.

Sharp 108” LCD TV /display: an Eye-catcher for Businesses

In November, Sharp India did the product release for the largest flat panel LCD display in the world the 108-inch LB-1085 model. It is an eye-catcher that stops you in your tracks to just look at the crystal clear picture — better than what one would see in a movie theater.

Basic Features: With screen dimensions of 93.9-inches wide by 52.9-inches high (7.8-feet by 4.4-feet), full-HD resolution with 6.21 million pixels (1,920 x 1,080), a TFT (thin-film transistor) active matrix drive system, and array of inputs, including HDMITM, Blue-ray and DVI-I for high definition connections, it is not surprising that the picture is awe-inspiring. The contrast ratio is 1200:1, producing a good black color, the brightness is 400 cd/m2, producing bright vivid colors, and the response speed of 6ms is super-fast for viewing fast moving videos. Once you see a movie or play a video game on this screen, you cannot imagine viewing a smaller screen. However, at current prices of INR 97 lakhs, this is only going to be accessible to a few exclusive high net-worth individuals and sure to be a prize possession for the limited few that can afford these TVs.

Business Value Proposition:The value proposition should be more acceptable to corporate looking to leverage world-class infrastructure to attract and retain customers or those building an office or boardroom environment that will be current for a few years. The fan-less design makes the 108-inch Sharp LCD display more attractive than the 103-inch Panasonic Plasma display, not because of the larger size but because of the robustness cutting edge LCD technology and closed fan-less design architecture. Combine the robustness of the unit with fact that LCD images are easier to view in ambient light than plasma images, viewing angles being approximately the same (the viewing angle for the 108-inch Sharp LCD is 176°) and the fact that LCD displays can be operated 24x7 for over 5 years with no deterioration in image quality, 108-inch Sharp LCD should be the longer term choice for businesses.

Other features will welcomed by businesses:

· Remote Monitoring and Management of Monitors: Up to 100 LCD monitors can be monitored and managed remotely. For example, the power can be switched off to conserve energy and remote diagnostics can be performed to diagnose problems with the monitor before dispatching a technician to fix the problem.

· Efficient Power Management: The 108” monitor is equivalent to having four 52” monitors placed together, however the power usage is much better than having four 52” displays.

· Fan-less Design for Quieter Operation: No fans in the display, results not only in a more robust architecture that better protects the display from dust and other environmental conditions, but there is less noise.

Business Usage: We will not be surprised to see these displays appear in:

· High-end malls: Not just to highlight or advertise key products and shops, but to show music videos and events at the mall. How can this not jazz up the malls and in the current environment of using every tool to drive traffic to the mall, this display will surely will be a must-have feature

· Live Events, Trade Shows and Reality TV Sets: Grabbing attention in all these applications is the key to success and 108-inch display does just that

· Training Centres: With LCD being a better technology to show both data images and along with the size advantage, we will be sure to see more training centres using the 108-inch Sharp display. Combine digital whiteboard capabilities that can be added-on and the value-add is even more significant.

· Security Monitoring, Network Operation Centers & Other Control and Command Centres: The ability to see multiple images at the same time and the ability to zoom in and out on troubled spot creates a value-proposition for this large display

· Advertising: Again the Wow! factor will drive adoption in this market
