  1. Too Expensive No More: a High Quality 128GB SSD for Under $300!

    San Jose, California – September 30, 2008 – Super Talent Technology, a leading manufacturer of Flash storage solutions and DRAM memory modules, today launched a pair of new high quality SATA-II SSDs that shatter previous price barriers.

    Super Talent’s MasterDrive SSDs have become legendary for their many advantages over hard drives. MasterDrive SSDs offer five times better resistance to shock and vibration, consume less power, support a wider range of operating temperatures and altitudes, and are completely silent. The new MasterDrive LX, offered in 64GB and 128GB capacities, offers all these benefits.

    The MasterDrive LX has also undergone Super Talent’s rigorous battery of validation tests, ensuring the highest levels of compatibility and reliability. What’s unique about the MasterDrive LX is its incredibly low price point; the 64GB model will retail for about $179, while the 128GB unit is expected to retail for under $300. Both models will begin shipping this week.

    Backed with Super Talent’s 1-year warranty, the MasterDrive LX is built with NAND flash and uses a SATA-II 3Gbps interface that makes it 100% interchangeable with hard disk drives. These SSDs support sequential read speeds of up to 100 MB/sec, and sequential write speeds of up to 40 MB/sec. Integrated ECC, wear leveling and bad bit management functions dramatically improve the reliability and lifespan of these SSDs.

    FTM64GO25H - 64GB 2.5-inch SATA-II SSD - 100/40 MB/sec - $179
    FTM28GO25H - 128GB 2.5-inch SATA-II SSD - 100/40 MB/sec - $299

    “The MasterDrive LX is our most cost-effective SSD yet. However, we’ve made no compromises in quality and reliability”, Super Talent Director of Marketing, Joe James explained.
