What can you expect from a company that sells these things? And I caught a glaring erer in the text! "SSDs have no moving parts" Absolutely, positively false!!! There are electrons in these things! Sure, moving them from one place to the next is faster than a spinning platter, but they are still "moving parts"!!! Can fool this fool!! nono.gif

And the story even admits that SSDs are not suitable for my needs; "anything larger than a 40TB drive an impossibility." I'm just glad I still have some 5" floppies!! yes.gif

without having its motives questioned.
