Several manufacturers are showing large capacity hard drives based on Flash memory technology at the Computex trade show in Taipei.
The drives are lighter, less power-hungry and far more durable than traditional hard disk drives based on a rotating magnetic platter.
The largest on display were PQI's 64GB drives, and another company has a 32GB drive.
While Flash hard drives have many potential benefits, they also have some drawbacks and are expensive.
Apacer's 32GB drive, which is available now, sells for about $1,700, said Vincent Hsu of the company's development and marketing department.
"Samsung told us that they expect prices to fall 40 per cent every year, if demand continues to grow," said Hsu.
The high prices restrict these large Flash drives to specialist markets, such as military and industrial use, where the durability and resistance to adverse environmental conditions is critical.
