Solid state drives (SSDs) are becoming increasing popular, especially as prices drop. Super Talent now joins OCZ in leading the movement toward affordable solid state drives. Super Talent’s MasterDrive LX is available in 64GB and 128GB capacities in a 2.5″ form factor. As with other SSDs, the MasterDrive LX offer about five times better resistance to shock and vibration, support a wider range of operating temperatures and altitudes, consume less energy, and are absolutely silent.
The Super Talent MasterDrive OX SSD features a new multi-channel SATA-II interface that offers enhanced read and write performance. The 2.5″ drives use multi-level cell (MLC) memory, and provide speeds up to 150MB/s read and 100MB/s write. Available capacities include 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB, and prices range from $149 to $419.
The update for the Super Talent single-level cell (SLC) PX series SSDs are available in capacities of 32GB or 64GB, and priced at $499 and $849, respectively. The drives boast 170MB/sec read and 130MB/sec write performance.
