Super Talent has released three new 1.8" solid state disks with a thickness of merely 5mm and capacities of 30GB, 60GB and 120GB.
At merely 5mm thick, these Micro-SATA SSDs are slimmer than most 1.8-inch hard drives, and hold up to 120GB of data. “In terms of performance, power consumption, and shock and vibration resistance the MasterDrive KX is substantially better than hard drives. The MasterDrive KX is an excellent upgrade for laptop users looking for greater reliability or to accelerate bootup and load times”, Super Talent Marketing Director, Joe James explained.

Built with MLC NAND Flash, the MasterDrive KX is offered in 30GB, 60GB and 120GB capacities. With 0.1ms access time and 120MB/sec and 40MB/sec max sequential read and write speeds, these SSDs provide lightning fast access to files. The Micro-SATA connector in a 1.8-inch form factor makes these SSDs an ideal upgrade for UMPCs (Ultra Mobile PCs). MasterDrive KX SSDs are available now through NewBiiz.
The 30GB, 60GB and 120GB version have a MSRP of $299, $449 and $679, respectively.
