does this mean use one flash card for archiving and write only once, and one for work and replace each year?

(not really just one but just an exmple argument)

If important stuff for archiving is just written a minimum of times then, via this article, the write issue is avoided. (how many chips are able to be read after terrible accidents, tsunamis etc?)

I don't have an answer....and....based on the few reviews that I have looked at....no one is very concerned about doing the work to find an answer....

See the review just above at post #13,...I scanned thru it....and it is mainly and speeds...performance....etc.

And the article notes that they are using the

Old 25 nm chips

For cost purposes????

Or maybe they know some of the same facts that LSI does,...some engineer probably does,,....but I bet the marketeers have a problem with using the OLD technology.

Based on this article,...I would say that "ARCHIVING" could be a problem.

Real archiving of a long term....would be best using the CD with a metal layer....requires a special slightly higher powered CD burner and special CD's .

I think Newegg has both...label is M-Disk.

Looking for a link:

M-DISC Designed to endure
