Mushkin adds SandForce SSD to their portfolio: Calypso

Like most other SSD manufacturers, Mushkin has added a SandForce based SSD to their lineup which promises to deliver leading performance at a better pricing than their existing products. In terms of capacities you will have a choice from 64 to 256 GB without exact pricing still unknown. As controller the SandForce SF-1200 is used, Mushkin is also working on a SF-1500 "enterprise" controller based drive, which mainly adds more IOPS to the write performance at the same 260 MB/s write speeds.

Better pricing sounds good to me.

Case looks good, drive looks good, but I doubt the price is anywhere near good, even if it's better than before :)

But atleast they are trying (general to all SSD makers).

If they really tried they'd be actively replacing HDD's by now. :shadedshu

HDD's have their place (mass storage mainly). But yeah, I do wish I could pick up a 80GB SSD as an OS/programs drive for about $100.
