Ridata announces three new aggressively priced SSDs

Looking to do their part in helping drive prices down to more affordable levels, Ridata today announced three new solid state drives that utilize the slower, but cheaper, multi-level cell technology. The new line of SSDs is called the Ridata Ultra-S Plus series and will be available in 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB capacities.

The SSDs connect to notebooks and PCs via a traditional SATA connection and feature read and write speeds of 128MB/s and 80MB/s, respectively. The company claims the drives store two bits of data per cell, providing fast performance and low power consumption at a more affordable price – $169.90, $294.90, or $537.90 depending on capacity.

All three versions will be released later this month. Ridata’s pricing for their new drives is almost in line with OCZ’s new Core Series SSDs, albeit a bit more expensive on the 64GB and 128GB models. They are nonetheless faster and cheaper than Super Talent’s recently announced MasterDrive MX line.
