    Computex 2008, Super Talent has announced a new line of 1.8-inch Micro-SATA solid state drives. At merely 5mm thick, these Micro-SATA SSDs are slimmer than most 1.8-inch hard drives, and hold up to 120GB of data. “In terms of performance, power consumption, and shock and vibration resistance the MasterDrive KX is substantially better than hard drives. The MasterDrive KX is an excellent upgrade for laptop users looking for greater reliability or to accelerate bootup and load times”, Super Talent Marketing Director, Joe James explained. Built with MLC NAND Flash, the MasterDrive KX SSDs are offered in 30GB, 60GB and 120GB capacities. Specs also mention about 0.1ms access time and 120MB/sec and 40MB/sec max sequential read and write speeds. Prices of these drives are as follows: $299 for the FUM30GK18H 30GB model, $449 for the FUM60GK18H 60GB model and $679 for the FUM20GK18H model.

    If the prices are accurate, then they are comparitively affordable: it costs about $1000 odd dollars to put a 64 GB SSD into a notebook, so these cut quite a bit of cost!

    HAHAHA!

    Freakin' excellent!

    I could quite easily stick a whole load of these into a Shuttle and I would have any need for a regular HDD. Absolutely fantastic!
