Solid state drives just got a little bit more affordable with Super Talentâ€™s new SATA-II SSDs. The company has launched a pair of their MasterDrive LX â€“ a 64GB model for $180 and a 128GB version for $300 â€“ both offering the robustness and speed of SSDs.
Super Talent said their 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. Both new models will begin shipping this week.
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.
