Orico HM01 SSD Series Pictured

Orico unveiled its latest HM01 series performance SSD, which was pictured in a recent review by Expreview. Built in the standard 2.5-inch form-factor, these drives take advantage of the SATA 6 Gb/s interface. These drives use a Marvell-made controller, and MLC NAND flash memory. The HM01 series will be available in three capacities: 64 GB, 128 GB, and 256 GB. While the 256 GB variant offers read/write speeds of up to 500 MB/s (read) and 440 MB/s (write), the other variants offer speeds of up to 500 MB/s (read) with 330 MB/s (writes). The company did not give out pricing/availability details.

Well I'm not particularly hot on SSDs. Still far too unreliable for serious consideration. But I have to say this nevertheless. If that Marvell controller is as suspect as theirs SATA controllers integrated into motherboards, then you should think realllllllly hard about buying Marvell powered SSD.
