Considering how much we've heard of Solid State Disk superiority over conventional spinning hard drives which are often prone to hard disk failure, it's only a matter of time before vendors get on the SDD bandwagon. First up with a large-capacity external version is Buffalo's 100GB model in its SHD-UHRS series of external USB 2.0 drives.

However, as much as some of us would love to flaunt one, there's a hefty premium to be paid for being the Big Cheese among your tech geek pals. That 100GB Buffalo SSD will set you back a very pretty penny of , $636, according to Japan Today. Compare that to a 100GB Hitachi HD that's retailing for just $90 at the local electronics mall, and the choice is simple for now.
