Super Talent releases a new budget line of SSDs

When it comes to SSDs, Super Talent isn't standing still when it comes to new models. Super Talent and OCZ have both been battling it out to bring faster, cheaper models to the masses based on multi-level cell (MLC) NAND technology.

Just two weeks ago, Super Talent launched new MLC-based MasterDrive OX drives which feature read speeds of 150MB/sec and write speeds of 100MB/sec. Prices range from $149 for the 32GB model on up to $419 for the 128GB mode.

Today, Super Talent is expanding its presence in the lower end of the market with a new line of budget SSDs. Super Talent's new MasterDrive LX lineup is targeting customers that want the advantages of SSDs without the relatively high costs. The price advantages of the MasterDrive LX SSDs come in the form of speed cuts compared to the MasterDrive OX family.

Super Talent's 64GB and 128GB MasterDrive LX drives are rated at 100MB/sec reads and only 40MB/sec writes. However, the prices are much more palatable at $179 and $299 respectively. Both drives are paired with a rather short one-year warranty and feature a SATA-II interface.

"The MasterDrive LX is our most cost-effective SSD yet. However, we’ve made no compromises in quality and reliability," said Super Talent Director of Marketing Joe James.

The Master Drive OX SSDs will be available next week.

Welcome to the world of marketing bs, in which a box can show a product making a lot of people happy when it can only toast bread.

Misleading is their treat, deception becomes our deal.
In a world of make believe where appearance becomes both jury and judge, and in which money can buy appearance, no one should feel surprised when lies and empty promises crowd the media.

Only he who learns to see in the dark, can avoid those obstacles laid out in the field that he was never supposed to see.

PS: aside from my stupid comment, I think not even the 6 on your rating is doing any justice to your post. If more people learnt to observe "little details" like you did this time, the misleading marketing campaigns would start to slowly disappear as they'd fool no one... But you and I know it's not gonna happen, though I admit I don't wanna loose my faith and continue to believe that some day it will.
