LiteOn Intros ZETA Series Consumer SSDs

An OEM for notable SSD brands such as Plextor, LiteOn kicked off its own consumer SSD line, with ZETA. Built in the 7 mm thick, 2.5-inch form-factor, with SATA 6 Gb/s interface, these drives come in three capacities, 128 GB (LCH-128V2S), 256 GB (LCH-256V2S), and 512 GB (LCH-512V2S), featuring LPDDR3 controller cache of 128 MB, 256 MB, and 512 MB, respectively. The drive is based on Silicon Motion SM2246EN controller, with 16 nm MLC NAND flash, made by SK Hynix.

All three capacities offer sequential read speeds of up to 520 MB/s, differing with sequential write speeds. The 128 GB variant offers up to 150 MB/s writes, the 256 GB variant offers up to 260 MB/s, and the 512 GB variant up to 430 MB/s. Their 4K random-access read speeds are up to 67,500 IOPS, up to 82,500 IOPS, and up to 83,500 IOPS, respectively; and random-access write speeds are up to 37,500 IOPS, up to 72,500 IOPS, and up to 80,000 IOPS, respectively. Most common client SSD features, such as TRIM, NCQ, and 256-bit AES native encryption, are part of the package. LiteOn didn't announce pricing information for markets outside the Greater China region, where the drives will make their debut.

These are obviously entry level drives (for those who want to try SSD for the first time, maybe).
Debut today in my country: 128gb = 62$ and 256gb = 110$, 3 years warranty.

Not really. Budget 120GB/256GB drives offering 500MB/s+ writes are almost exclusivly using varios techniques to boost write speeds temporary. Think turbowrite or ncache. Or compression with sandforce.

PS:
Seqential speeds are the last thing to worry about ssds :)

Why do you guys care about SEQUENTIAL writes ?

Its not like you're gonna copy big files from one ssd to another...

I transfer small and large files all the time. It's possible to care about all specs :)
