Super Talent launches its MasterDrive OX, PX SSDs

Super Talent is bulking up its solid-state drive (SSD) family with new, third generation models. The company today announced that its new MasterDrive OX and PX SSDs feature a brand new multi-channel SATA-II controller for increased read/write speeds.

The new 2.5" MasterDrive OX drives employ multi-level cell (MLC) memory and feature read speeds of 150MB/sec and write speeds of 100MB/sec. The drives will be available in capacities of 32GB ($149), 64GB ($259), and 128GB ($419).

Super Talent also made updates to its single-level cell (SLC) SSDs with the new MasterDrive PX family. These drives will be available in capacities of 32GB ($499) or 64GB ($849) and are capable of 170MB/sec reads and 130MB/sec writes.

Interestingly, the MLC-based drives come with a paltry one-year warranty, while the SLC drives are backed by a more respectable three-year warranty.

"In this, our third generation of SATA SSDs, we’ve taken performance to incredible new heights, with sustained read and write speeds that will leave any hard disk drive in the dust," said Joe James, Super Talent Director of Marketing. "At the same time, our MasterDrive SSDs are among the most cost effective solid state storage solutions available."

The drives are expected to be available in the retail market later this week.

What happened to all of this talk about the reliability of flash based drives? For that price I would expect more confidence in the product.

The intel one has 3 years warranty. Super Talent had always been in my mind a budget brand.

Those two words ascribe excellence individually. Combined, you shouldn't even question it!

It's the poor application of English. Technically a super talent would be something like the superior ability to play the violin. Add that to the fact that I have never heard super used to describe the word talent and you have a name that was obviously thought up by a foreign company that can't afford/be bothered with how absurd their name sounds in English.

I thought Super Talent was one of only a couple manufacturers still making products in the USA. Or maybe I'm thinking of Patriot.

BFG = Big Flappy Gonads, or so I have been told by a weird man on the corner of my street with 50 cats.

of course, but i was referring to the irony of an OS that unix users consider bloated being called 'micro'. and if you wanted to really stretch the analogy, that it is called soft when apple users consider it a harder operating system. i dunno. back to the joke drawing board.
