    Super Talent Technology, a leading manufacturer of Flash storage solutions and DRAM memory modules, today announced the new "UltraDrive MX SSD". The UltraDrive MX features a new dual-interface for both SATA II and mini-USB connections. The new dual-interface enables this SSD to offer a new level of flexibility and consumer convenience by enabling the customer to use this drive as either an internal SSD or an external SSD.

    For customers thinking about upgrading their PC or notebook to a Solid State Disk, the dual-interface UltraDrive MX is a dream come true. Customers can first utilize the USB connector to create an image of their existing internal hard drive. Once complete, the drives can be swapped and the PC rebooted. In the past, creating such an image required an external hard disk enclosure. Now this operation can be completed, faster, easier and with less expense.

    "Most customers know that Solid State Disks offer superior Performance, Reliability and Power Savings, yet they have been unable to makes the switch. The dual-interface on the UltraDrive MX enables a convenient bridge solution during this critical transition period". , Super Talent COO, C.H. Lee.

    More than just convenient, the UltraDrive MX is also a real performer. The UltraDrive MX features the JMicron 616 which enables this SSD to reach an impressive 250MB/s Read and 180MB/s Write speeds. The UltraDrive MX also supports the latest GC and Trim features designed to keep this SSD running at optimum performance for the life of the drive.

    This UltraDrive MX drive is an important addition to SuperTalent's SSD lineup. The new UltraDrive MX represents a premium consumer offering and fits nicely between our Value Line and Enterprise SSD offerings.

    The UltraDrive MX will begin shipping September 1st and will be available in 60GB, 120GB, 240 and 480GB capacities.

    I doubt it. I doesn't even have SATAIII, but SATAII instead. By the way, it's mini-USB, I don't know if we can already expect it to support USB3.0...

    Why would it need SATA III ?, Sure it would of been nice i guess but pointless for what their aiming the drive for. But whats the point the drive dont do SATA III speeds.

    What SATA III enabled drives do? :wtf: I think SATA III and USB III should start becoming standard, afterall there is no reason they can't be, they are both backwards compatible.

    rofl...'dream come true' to create a HD image over USB 2.0? Sounds more like a nightmare to me. Besides which, you're going to have to get inside the PC to swap out or at least install the SSD anyway so the marketing department fails big time for promoting it as an advantage for imaging as a replacement system drive. Now if they promoted it as a super-sized USB drive that would be another thing...not sure I'd want to use one that way without an external enclosure for risk of breaking the SATA connectors though.
