    Mtron, a manufacturer of Solid State Drive (SSD) products in South Korea, announced today that they have completed the development of new PRO 7500 SSDs for industrial purpose, and will be launching them in June. Mtron's new PRO 7500 series will come in both 2.5 and 3.5-inch form factors and support the SATA 3.0 Gbps interface. Read and write speeds for these drives are 130MB/s and 120MB/s respectively, making them the fastest solid state drives currently on the market. Finally, Mtron will offer the 7500 series in capacities from 32GB to 128GB. In addition, Mtron informed it will be exhibiting their new drives at DS Expo/10th Data Storage Expo in Tokyo (May 14-16, 2008) and CeBIT Australia 2008 in Australia (May 20-22, 2008).

    You Don't need a super Large SSD!
    32GB or 64GB is ok for the OPS! And any other data will feel well in your old 500GB HDDs :)
    Ultrafast(instant On:Dwould be Great) Windows or Linux, and The actual Game's of choice will fit in a 32GB SSD
    So I hope that 1 or max 2 year's and I can Buy one at the right price!

    If im not wrong, these SSD'S have only 1 year warranty and thats a shit

    Most HDDs have also just one year Garantee!
    But I'm sure when time goes by and tech matures, they will raise the garantee much much longer!
    Because there aren't any moving parts in it!

    I read 5 years warranty on a Tom's hardware

    http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/ssd-memoright,review-30808.html

    "The Memoright Flash SSD MR25.2-032S is available in several capacities of 8, 16, 32, 64 and 128 GB. We received four 32-GB drives, which allowed us to do RAID 0 benchmarks, so we could see the potential of flash SSD when set up in RAID arrays. All of these come with a five-year warranty, which is comparable to other enterprise hard drives on the market. The warranty is also a sign of faith in flash SSD’s reliability."
