Super Talent sprinkles fairy dust on its "budget" SSD lineup

The solid state disk (SSD) market is really starting to heat up. Super Talent threw down the gauntlet with its low-priced MX series SSDs. OCZ then returned the favor with its Core Series SSDs.

OCZ held the upper hand with not only lower pricing for its Core Series SSDs, but also the advantage of faster read/write performance. Super Talent's MX SSDs clocked in with read speeds of 120MB/sec and write speeds of 40MB/sec. OCZ's Core SSDs feature read speeds of 120 to 143 MB/sec and write speeds of 80 to 93 MB/sec depending on the capacity of the drive in question.

With OCZ breathing down its neck, Super Talent worked a little magic on its MX drives. The 15GB and 30GB models now feature read speeds of 120MB/sec and write speeds of 60MB/sec. The 60GB and 120GB have the same read speeds, but now have write speeds of 80MB/sec.

"Our expert engineering team is constantly discovering new ways to improve our products, and this is one improvement that will be well received by power laptop users", said Super Talent Director of Marketing, Joe James. "We continue our relentless drive to add performance, features and value to our SSDs while driving the price down."

In addition to the speed bumps, Super Talent also recently posted a new $40 rebate to make SSDs more price competitive with OCZ's core lineup.
