The Tech Report writes Plextor will enter the solid state disk market next month with a Marvell-based disk. Initial models will be available in 64GB and 128GB capacities, these SSDs will feature a 3Gbps SSD controller. The next generation is expected for the summer, these storage devices will likely use a newer controller from Marvell with 6Gbps SATA support. The first generation features flash memory from Samsung, while the next disks will use Toshiba memory.
A longtime a manufacturer of optical drives, Plextor will dip its toes into the solid-state market in 2010 with a pair of SSDs based on a 3Gbps Marvell SSD controller. The drives use flash memory from Samsung and will be available in 64 and 128GB capacities in February. Final versions weren't on display at Plextor's suite, but the only changes to the drives pictured below will be cosmetic etching on the casing.
