Super Talent Shoots for the Entry Level Market with Value SSD Product Line

If we could, we'd all be rocking multiple high-end SSDs in a killer RAID 0 configuration with transfer rates that are off the charts. So why aren't we? Take your pick - kids' college fund, mortgage, car payment, food, and everything else that takes a chunk out of our paycheck. For most, investing several hundred, or even thousands of dollars on a storage medium whose price-per-gigabyte is nothing short of obscene just isn't feasible.

Dry those teary eyes, would-be upgrader, because you too can own an SSD and still pay your monthly bills. That's because flash storage makers are starting to focus on the entry-level and mainstream markets, just as Super Talent is doing with their new Value SSD product line.

Available in 8GB, 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB capacities, these drives boast anywhere from 90MB/s reads and 30MB/s writes, to up to 150MB/s reads and 100MB/s writes. Conservative, yes, but so are the price tags. All of these drives are available now starting at $65 for the 8GB model, and up to about $175 for the 64GB version.

Fast Entrance to the SSD World


San Jose, California – April 8, 2010 -- Super Talent Technology, a leading manufacturer of Flash storage solutions and DRAM memory modules, today announced a new value solid state drive (SSD) product line dubbed Super Talent VSSD that brings performance and solid-state technology together at an incredible price.


Super Talent VSSD offers shorter OS bootup time, faster application loading, less system power consumption and a brand new experience the customer can never get from traditional hard-disks. VSSD takes full advantage of the 3Gbps SATA-II bandwidth. The VSSD is capable of sequential read speeds up to 150 MB/sec and sequential write speeds up to 100 MB/sec.

Available in capacities from 8GB to 64GB, Super Talent provides customers the option to enter the SSD world with a limited budget, but no compromise in performance. Customers can now build or upgrade a system economically, running the operating system and applications on the VSSD and storing data on a traditional hard-disk. 


VSSDs have undergone exhaustive validation and stress testing in both Windows® and Linux environments to emerge as one of the most reliable SSDs available. These drives are encased in a lightweight polymer shell that protects the drives against physical damage. VSSDs are dramatically more resistant to shock and vibration than hard drives.


VSSDs are available now from Super Talent resellers worldwide at street prices ranging from about $65 for the 8GB model to around $175 for the 64GB model.
