    ADATA Technology, a leading manufacturer of high-performance DRAM modules and NAND Flash application products, today announced the release of thinner and lighter versions of its solid state drives. With a thickness of just 7 mm, these SSD models are extremely suitable for slim-design laptop and Ultrabook computers.

    The standard thickness for 2.5" form factor hard disk drives is 9.5mm. However, the market trend towards thinner and lighter notebook computers has influenced the design requirements for all components, especially hard drives. ADATA's 7 mm SSDs have reduced thickness, with no loss of speed, capacity, or durability, and are evidence of the company's well-known determination to maintain competitiveness by maximizing versatility of its product offerings. The new SSDs will come with 2.5 mm plastic holders, so that they can still be used with existing 9.5 mm drive slots.

    ADATA already enjoys a reputation as an innovator and leader in the NAND Flash application field, and the company's SSDs have proven to be popular with consumers around the globe. This thinner form factor demonstrate that ADATA looks to remain a leader in solid state technology.

    Kudos to them for providing the plastic holder and not making people chase a solution down.

    I'm very happy they include a holder. I've come across some laptops for customers at work where their IT department had replaced a drive without checking dimensions and then just stuck a pad of sticky notes on it to fill in the extra space (and prevent the drive from moving and stressing the connector). Sure, it works and the user really doesn't ever see it, but when third-party hardware maintenance provider like me goes to work on another issue and sees something like that, it makes your company look unprofessional.
