RunCore PRO IV SSDs

Storage device maker RunCore on Monday announced it has added to its recently announced range of PRO IV solid state drives (SSDs), meant to replace old hard drives in users' PCs and Macs. The drives range from 32GB up to 256GB with a variety of interfaces and sizes. SSDs are much more efficient than hard drives, as there are no moving parts. This also makes them more resistant to physical damage such as drops, quieter and faster.

Since the introduction back in May, RunCore has added a 50mm T-Style PCI-e PATA drive, a 70mm PCI-e SATA II drive and 1.8-inch PATA, 5mm micro SATA and 5mm PATA Zif drives. All are available in 32GB through to 128B capacities and are normally meant for use in Windows PCs. The 2.5-inch drives can be had with SATA II or PATA IDE interfaces and max out at 256GB.

The Mac versions are comprised of two 1.8-inch SSDs with SATA II LIF or PATA ZIF interface, whilte the two 2.5-inch drives are available in the SATA II or PATA IDE connections. All range from 32GB to 128GB.

RunCore offers all the drives as standalone items or as part of an upgrade bundle that includes an external USB drive enclosure and cloning software to allow users to transfer content from their hard drives onto the SSDs.

The standalone drives are expected to ship in August, with pricing set at $180, $290, $500 and $900 for the 32GB, 64GB, 128GB and 256GB capacities, respectively.
