Super Talent launches sub-$300 128GB SSD

updated 08:15 am EDT, Tue September 30, 2008

Super Talent LX SSD

Super Talent on Tuesday gave notebook owners a potential break by launching the MasterDrive LX lineup, its lowest-cost solid-state drive lineup yet. The 2.5-inch SATA II disks use a relatively low-cost form of multi-level cell (MLC) storage to provide performance faster than many notebook drives without driving up the cost or affecting their longevity. All LX drives claim a peak reading speed of 100MB per second and write back at 40MB per second while lasting for a claimed average of one million hours (114 years) between failures.

The drives slot directly into most notebooks and should be available as a retail kit for notebook owners able and willing to replace their own drives. The 128GB drive is considered a new record breaker by the company and will sell for $299, or half the price or less than many other disks. The 64GB drive is less expensive still and will sell for $179. Super Talent ships both to online and physical retailers this week.
