Stupidity or genius? Here comes the disposable SSD

Verbatim will introduce select hard drives to the market. In a sense, this will be disposable media, because once written, like CD-R or DVD-R discs, it will not allow the data to be erased.

Usually, when creating a backup or sharing data with another person, we no longer play with discs, but only access a USB flash drive or flash drive.

Let’s add that for now, SWOVA will only be available in one capacity variant, which is very modest, which is 128GB.

When, how much and what

Unfortunately, at the moment it is not known when the equipment will appear in stores, let alone at what price we can expect. No doubt whatsoever, in general Single use Verbatima will be there Less profitable than their traditional counterparts. Eventually, by default, if the data it contains is no longer needed, it will end up in the trash. The question of the need for this type of gem, let us leave it open for now. After all, consumers will verify this using their own wallets.

Editors see one plausible, if not necessarily purely consumerist rationale.
