    In that top image, is that SATA and then some other connector at the other end?
    Be nice to have multiple connection methods on a drive but not sure how that'd eat into other product line sales..

    U.2 connector? Dunno what one looks like to be honest.

    EDIT: Also, this isn't "never die". This is a new strategy to mitigate the problems of NAND lifespan and potential for data loss. We're better at recovering data from damaged spinning platters than from NAND and this looks like when the data is compromised due to wear, it can move it, intact, to another chip. Sounds pretty awesome as it negates one of the major drawbacks of NAND. This still means the old chip is dead and the drive will likely need replacing at some point. What it does it is means you can do that at your convenience and when enough chips have failed to mean you have to replace it.

    Entropy still exists, Samsung. Stop using marketing to claim you've managed to break the laws of physics.

    By the way, can I have a 3.5mm headphone jack back, please? Otherwise, I'm going to buy the new hacker phone of choice - Huawei.

    Sounds perfect for local ESX storage.
