Next up we have the Super Talent UltraDrive ME, model number FTM64GX25H. Super Talent's UltraDrive ME series of SSDs are the company's fifth generation of solid state products for desktop and mobile applications. 

    

    
Super Talent UltraDrive ME 64GB

As you can see the drive uses the same 2.5" form factor as the vast majority of other consumer oriented solid state drives. It features SATA II connectivity and hard metal shell. With the drive disassembled, you can see that it too is based on Samsung NAND flash technology. An Elpida 64MB memory chip acts as cache for the drive and it is controlled by a Super Talent branded IndiLinx controller, that sits adjacent to the cache memory.

Super Talent's specifications suggest a maximum sequential read speed of 230MB/s for the 64GB model we tested, with write speeds of up to 180MB/s. The other products in the UltraDrive ME series feature varying capacities of up to 256GB, with slightly different read / write speeds as outlined in the chart above.

Nice right up. I am ordering either a WD scorpio black or a OCZ Solid Series for my netbook here in about an hour. The Solid series are slower, but for $109 for 30GBs a better deal. I am waiting on the girlfriend approval to find out which one I can getEmbarrassed

Anyway if I get the SSD and like it I may get a higher end SSD for my desktop down the road. I just need the a bigger one in size. I want one that can hold my OS and my steam foler(which is 51GBs right now)

Hi there,

 

unfortunately you didn't test the SSDs with the latest firmwares!

Super Talent UltraDrive ME have a new firmware 1370, which sets the max. write speed to 200 MBps and read speed to 260 MBps on all drives.

And with that the overall performance and 4k random write and read should be improved also.

I think the OCZ drives have also a new firmware 1.10 or such.

 

So please update your article/test with the newest firmware.

Besides this, your article is good, but not great, because of lack of newest firmware!

Thanks in advance!

best regards,
