The Microsoft Windows Hardware Qualification Lab (WHQL), has validated that Samsung SSDs meet all of the requirements for storage media in a Windows operating environment - Yippie!

The Samsung SSD drives have a data read speed of 57MB/s and data write speed of 32MB/s, more than double the performance levels of a 1.8 inch HDD. A performance boost of up to 50 times of a 1.8 HDD can be reached when servicing small, random data "read" requests.

Instant boot this is what we want. Now those drives need just to drop in price and become more common. Microsoft has certified a 32GB 1.8-inch sized Samsung SSD, a 32GB slim-type Samsung SSD (53.6x70.6x3.0mm) and a 16GB small-type SSD (56x48x3.8mm). The new sizes support the physical requirements of sub-notebook PCs.
