    $14,000?!?!

    They'd better be good for that. Wait - it is MLC? Okay, well at least it'll fit well into these server caddies. No wait, it's too thick. Erm.

    Don't think that's what it's supposed to be used for. From reading the article it seems like it's intended to be used for movie production, where it would actually fit in quite well.

    I know, I know. It'd probably be ideal, and the cost could be easily absorbed in that business. It's still mega money for mid-spec components in a non-versatile form factor, but it's good that the capcity boundaries are being pushed.

    I'd imagine these fit nicely in 3.5" server caddies - at least I really hope they would!

    Re: Fixstars launches a 13TB SSD called the SSD-13000M

    I can also imagine one in my HTPC. How many movies and TV recordings could I store on that. :-)
    Been wondering why SSD's had not increased much in size, especially when you look how much empty space is in the newer 2.5" SSD's and (relatively speaking) how long ago we had 1TB nsata SSD's. Although I was more expecting to see something like a 4TB or 6TB before they got near 13TB.
    I suppose it is a little easier for the movie industry having one of these, instead of carrying around a 6 bay NAS filled with 2TB SSD's (or a 2 bay NAS with 2x 6TB enterprise HDD's). Price for the NAS with SSD's is a few thousand cheaper though.
    But with only a 3 year warranty for a $13,000 investment in a SATA drive, I think I will stay with what I have. :-)

    Pretty standard speeds and 3 years warranty. As far as I know - the bigger the capacity, the longer it'll last. I'd want at warranty of min 5 years for such purchase.

    Re: Fixstars launches a 13TB SSD called the SSD-13000M

    Now one of those would make an awesome HEXUS prize

    However I would expect to see these incorporated as embedded devices in bespoke applications. Video recording was mentioned, so these could be used in field/outside broadcast recorders.

    you don't need 520 MB/s & 100,000 IOPS to store and watch 4K video, rust drive are just fine for now! how many terabytes of rust drive space can you get from $13,000?

    Isn't uncompressed 8bit 4k 60fps video 1.59GB/s? Guess this thing is actually meant to be used with some high speed raid controller?

    I think the negative comments are from those that don't understand the intended market, or the requirements of that market. This isn't a device intended for home use (although it could be used at home) but for industrial use, particularly the film industry.
