Corsair 128GB SSD Shows up on UK Online Retailer

With no official word from Corsair and no leaked information before now, a 128GB Solid State Drive (SSD) has appeared on the UK Online Retailer Named simply, the Corsair S128, with a product code of CMFSSD-128GBG1D, Corsair's product description reads, "Corsair solid state disk drives set a new standard for reliability in desktop and notebook storage solutions. Corsair solid state disk drives utilize specially selected Samsung components to enable a life expectancy of over 100 years and OEM level compatibility and performance consistency." With the mention of Samsung components, could these simply be rebranded units? Or has Corsair branched off into yet another section of the industry?

Specifications are as follows:
  • 100+ Year Life Expectancy (MTBF)
  • Maximum sequential read 90MB/s . Maximum sequential write 70MB/s
  • OEM qualified Samsung controller and MLC NAND for compatibility and consistent performance
  • Decreased power usage for cool and quite operation

I highly doubt the life expectancy on that drive. If it lasts 10 years though, it would be a good investment

SSD's will last that long. its just that by that time is up, it'll have blacklisted bad sectors and probably be a 4GB drive.
