Improved seek and read times and increased size are good. Firmware updates might also provide some additional performance as the tech evolves. Now if the prices could just start to fall so i could get one.

I wonder why they had to add a USB port to it? It's already connected to the computer via SATA; surely they could have made the drive smart enough to recognize proprietary flash commands on that interface.
