    First, I'd like to say I learned a lot from the webinar. The comparison with the hybrid hard disk drives is very helpful. Also, the last question was really helpful!

    Anyway, when it comes to mSATA SSDs vs regular SSDs, is there any performance difference? mSATA SSDs are getting larger in terms of capacity nowadays and I believe ultrabooks are starting to use them. Would they likely replace regular SSDs soon or there are differences to the two?

    That is a great question. To give a complete answer I'm going to get a bit technical.

    mSATA SSDs generally only have 4 packages, the flash that you see on the drive. Often times, the drives only use 4 channels of the controller as well. For the most part performance is the same but in some cases performance drops slightly as well. Under normal use you won't notice a difference.

    mSATA drives use 3.3 volts of power where as a 2.5" drive uses 5 volts. Again, it's often the case that you'll get better notebook battery life with mSATA but the difference isn't as large as going from a hard drive to a SSD.

    hey najiro!

    people are saying 4k random ready/write is important and I think it is too but low latency and over provision is more important, theres also firmware and controller of course. look at toshiba Q pro 4k isn't so impressive but it's hella faster than everything else.
