Crucial M225 SSDs Ship

Crucial this morning acted on its promise and shipped its M225 solid-state drives. They make up only the second line of SSDs at the memory producer and target the high-end notebook or server space with maximum read and write speeds of 250MB and 200MB per second. All of the drives attach through SATA and SATA II interfaces and support the company's own SK01 drive kit, which carries both a 3.5-inch bay adapter to use the SSDs with desktops and a USB external enclosure.

Using less expensive multi-level cell storage helps Crucial keep the prices down and will put a 64GB drive at $170, a 128GB version at $330, and a 256GB drive at $600. All of the upgrades should be available today; the SK01 kit sells for $30.
