San Jose, California – March 14, 2007-- Super Talent Technology, a leading manufacturer of DRAM memory modules and flash products, today announced a full range of Solid State Disk (SSD) drives with an industry standard Serial ATA interface.

This new line of SATA drives is offered in industry standard 1.8-inch, 2.5-inch, and 3.5-inch form factors, making these drives 100% compatible with conventional hard disk drives. However, these products are built with only solid state Flash components. Since they contain no moving parts, SSD drives have the advantage of being far more rugged and reliable than regular hard drives, while using 85% less power. Moreover, because SSD drives are built using Flash technology, they offer sequential transfer speed comparable to magnetic drives and dramatically faster access speed. Super Talent’s 1.8-inch SATA drives are offered in up to 32GigaByte capacities; 2.5-inch drives are available in up to 64GigaBytes; and for high capacity requirements Super Talent offers a 128GigaByte 3.5-inch drive.

“This new generation of SSD drives delivers all the benefits of Flash based storage – rugged reliability, low power consumption and fast access speed. But we’ve engineered these drives to offer twice the data throughput at half the cost per gigabyte compared to the first SSD drives we introduced a year-ago.” stated Joe James, Marketing Director at Super Talent Technology.

Super Talent designs and manufactures its SSD drives in its state-of-the-art Silicon Valley factory. Super Talent has validated these products in a wide variety of motherboards and laptops to ensure compatibility, and performs 100% testing on every flash product they build to ensure the highest level of reliability. These RoHS compliant products will be available in April 2007 to OEMs and resellers directly from Super Talent. Pricing to be released in April.

i'd like to see some benches, but there's a good chance one of these might replace my raptor. should be totally silent too.
How much are the 64gb drives likely to cost? Might be an alternative for my laptop drive (2.5")
