Mushkin ships 60GB, 120GB, 240GB Callisto SSDsBy Matthew DeCarlo
Mushkin has announced the availability of its Callisto solid-state drives, which come in three iterations that vary only in capacity and price. All models make use of the new SandForce SF-1200 controller and boast peak read speeds of 285MB/s, while write speeds top out at 275MB/s. The Callisto drives have a MTBF of two million hours, and are backed by a three-year warranty.
So, what's the damage you ask? The 60GB model has a list price of $240.49, the 120GB version is $406.99, and the 240GB version is $733.49. Mushkin also provides an alternative "web price" of $218.49, $369.99 and $666.49, respectively, which is more along the lines of what you can expect to see when shopping for a Callisto. In fact, the company's own store sells them at that price.
