Super Talent shows off how much abuse a solid state disk can handle with a vibration test:
The test consists of a Super Talent MasterDrive SSD mounted on top of a paint shaker. The Windows Vista operating system and Tomb Raider game were installed on the SSD and the game was played for over 40 minutes while the SSD was shaking like crazy. Super Talent Marketing Director, Joe James said, “It’s obvious when you see this video that no hard drive could sustain that kind of beating. Our MasterDrive SSDs, on the other hand, with no moving parts, are made for exactly this type of torture.”
The drive used in this test is the MasterDrive MX, part number FTM20GK25H, which is a 120GB SSD that retails for about $670 at NewEgg and NewBiiz.
