This is the first post of a new category, Cool Shit. Here I plan to build up a collection of the coolest shit in the world. Think of it as a wish list of sorts. You can find my contact details here if you wish to sponsor me any of the things on this list.


Without wasting any more time, I present to you a 6TB 2.5″ Solid State Drive. Holy fucking shit! I have a 128GB SSD in my MacBook and I thought I was a badass. This is like the Bugatti of SSDs. I don’t even want to know how much this thing will cost. Judging by the fact that the 1TB version is over R10k it’ll probably be more than your average house.

The world’s first 6TB drive is built on cutting edge 15nm MLC Flash Memory which has been packed into a dense 2.5″ form factor.

The Fixstars SSD-6000M supports SATA 6Gbps, providing read speeds of up to 540 MB/s, and write speeds of up to 520MB/s for sequential access. As with the Fixstars SSD-3000M, the proprietary SSD controller enables a stable, high I/O performance for sequential access throughout the lifetime of the drive. This characteristic has proven to be highly effective in numerous areas such as video recording, medical imaging, big data analysis, network infrastructure, and industrial applications.

So there you have it. For the small sacrifice of your first born, you can have this massive fast SSD.
