PhotoFast Unveils 1.8-inch G-Monster V3 Micro-SATA SSD

PhotoFast unveiled yet another 1.8-inch SSD, this time, compliant with more recent standards. The new G-Monster V3 uses a micro-SATA interface, that is available on some netbooks. Apart from its main NAND-flash storage, that comes in capacities of 32, 64, and 128 GB, it also features 64 MB of DDR2 memory to serve as a high speed buffer. The buffer ensures latency reduction on the host controller's side, especially since the drive offers high data transfer rates of 230/180 MBps (read/write). This may yet another product lined up for launch at Computex.

And again, as with all of these, whether or not it is any good really depends on how much they are selling them for.

Call me when the 32Gb is $60 - then I might buy two or three.
