    TakeMS International AG, German manufacturer of flash memory products for your needs, today joins the SSD business by starting to offer 32 GB, 64 GB and 128 GB solid-state drives in its product portfolio. Using no special model name, the Take MS drives use 2.5-inch enclosures full of MLC NAND flash chips and a SATA 3.0 Gbps interface to achieve transfer rates of up to 150 MB/s. The new drives are already starting to appear in European shops for 94.55, 149.17 and 270.06 Euro for the 32 GB, 64 GB, and the 128 GB models.

    $400 for a 128GB? Sounds like the SSD market/race is finally going to start slowing down for the consumer.

    Is this a dawn of Seagate WD etc? These SSD companies pop out from nowhere.
    Those old school HDD companies will have a nut to crack if everybody starts making SSDs at home.

    Seagate/wd/samsung/hitchi and the like have been working on SSD tech for years, they just havent brought anything out because the sales figuars would SUCK(low volume=high price)

    they are mostly looking at a mixed mode setup with ram(flashram or ddr) mixed with a classic mech hdd, these drives could offer the speed boost of ssd with the capacity of mech at a lower price point.

    SSD's got at least another year or 2 b4 they become "main stream"
