Corsair officially enters the SSD market

128GB model just released

 

Some time ago, we reported that Corsair did not think the time was right to enter the SSD market, but they were watching the market closely.  Just four months have passed since that statement, and the company has recently released its first mainstream 2.5-inch model based on Samsung 30nm 64Gbit MLC NAND flash.

The disk is a 128GB model, dubbed S128, and features maximum sequential read speeds of 90MB/s and maximum sequential write speeds of 70MB/s.  Moreover, the S128 is equipped with a Samsung controller as opposed to the often-used JMicron 602 controller.  This will provide more consistent performance in everyday usage, as there have been issues with the JMicron controller in the past.

 

Moreover, NCIXUS has just listed the disk for $333.15 and it comes complete with Corsair's 2-year manufacturer warranty. It should be fast but it sure isn't cheap.
