    Monster and SDJ Technologies have recently teased the very first solid state drives coming out under the Monster Digital brand, the 'Le Mans' Series. These drives feature a 2.5-inch form factor, a SandForce SF-2200 controller, Toshiba-made synchronous MLC (multi-level cell) NAND Flash memory, a SATA 6.0 Gbps interface, and deliver read and write speeds of up to 550 MB/s and 515 MB/s, respectively.

    The Le Mans family of SSDs will ship in Q1 2012 and will include 80 GB, 120 GB, 240 GB and 400 GB models. The drives' prices were not announced but such info should be made available early next month at CES 2012.

    Hmm, it comes with a MONSTER SATA cable too, right? I bet it costs more than the drive itself. :D

    for the price that Monster charges you could assume that you are getting platinum braided shielding as well
