Super Talent launches three new SSDs

1.8-inch trio

Super Talent has announced three new SSDs as part of its MasterDrive KX series. All three will use MLC NAND chips and will be aimed at the growing UMPC market.

With the use of MLC NAND these drives will offer access times of 0.1ms with read and write speeds of up to 120 MB/s and 40 MB/s respectively. These little things measure just 78.5 x 54.0 x 5.0mm.

The use of MLC NAND chips will probably bring a good performance/price ratio, but also a shorter life expectancy. The lower life expectancy shouldn't be an issue, since these devices aren't meant for storage, but rather as fast, power efficient and cheap 1.8-inch system drives.

The new 30, 60 and 120GB MasterDrive KX SSDs should be available soon at eWiz.com at suggested prices of $299, $449 and $679, respectively.
