As Allyn has become a past master at testing SSDs to destruction and was not interested in PCIe flash storage solutions that could not be used as a boot drive, OCZ has decided to merge the two into one killer product, the RevoDrive.  In this case it is the OCZ RevoDrive 240GB PCIe SSD, sold at an MSRP of $639.99 or $2.66/GB.   It is impressive, beating traditional SSDs easily and while not matching the performance of the FusionIO, it is bootable and it uses far less resources than that particular PCIe SSD.  Check out his full r

One of the nicest parts to the new Corsair's Force F120 solid-state drive
is that it allows access to more of the flash memory for storage.  The original 128GB capacity drive only allowed the use of 100GB while the new version allows you 120GB, as Allyn reported on in May.  The reason behind the overprovisioned memory is to increase the lifetime of the drive as well as allowing an increase in speed
as it can change the blocks of flash that are being used on the fly, if it is advantageous to.

Sticking with the theme of new types of flash memory, a story appeared on Slashdot about Anobit Technologies, a company working on a new type of MLC flash that should have the wearability of SLC.  This could be a dangerous area to focus research on as the major benefit of MLC is how incredibly cheap it is compared to SLC memory, though it is hard to call either type affordable without wincing at least a little.  This is important as there has been no mention of pri
