[QUOTE=ChristineBCW;2699784]I’m still not too certain when I read about “military grade” computers.
Do their embedded kevlar parts stop RPGs and artillery shells?[/QUOTE]
Most human beings ever deployed as troops engaged in military affairs must have marched and fought on barefoot. I right now probably have more “military grade” hardware than the average ROK soldier that actually had to confront enemies.
What “military grade” meant for the troops among whom I served was very different from what I see from products news on those labelled as such these days. Since I was accustomed to do everything manually, and I mean by bare hands when I say manually, including things that could have been done with shovels and brushes, such a term does not sound excessive. Those products feel durable enough. I think it’s largely a matter of budget and technology. But then most people are dumb and even the smartest people usually make bad and wrong decisions so it might be that those products paid by taxpayers for military use are mostly waste of money. Just as most people are too proud and vane and greedy, so are generals and captains and they make corrupt decisions especially when it comes to spending money paid by others.
Well, that was not really about a particular Sony SSD but rather more about the general history of military logistics of East and West since I was thinking of F-35’s and military uniforms.
As for the practical aspect of external SSD units, I think it’s proper to have SSD board and chips inside most external storage devices. The one I had for a few weeks was very good, but it’ll still require a few more years for this revolution for a really versatile PC to complete during which SSD’ll continue to evolve in all important areas.
