SSD is for notebook and desktop users

SanDisk has unveiled a new SSD today called the Ultra that is now shipping to retailers.

The Ultra SSD is sized to work in a notebook or a desktop computer and is designed for a drop-in upgrade to a machine for users. The SSD reads up to 280MB/s sequentially and up to 270MB/s sequential writes are supported. 
The drive has a mean time between failure rating of up to a million hours.

"Replacing a computer's hard disk drive with the SanDisk Ultra SSD is more cost effective than buying a new PC," said Kent Perry, director, product marketing, SanDisk. "Our new SSD delivers greater speed and reliability than a hard disk drive at an affordable price."

The SSD is offered in three capacities with a 60GB for $129.99, 120GB for $219.99, and a 240GB for $449.99. All three capacities are available right now in the U.S. and can be purchased from Newegg and other retailers.

You can still pick up a Agility 2 cheaper. Last week, Newegg had them for 99.99 plus 10 MIR. (60Gb vers) I bought my 2 from microcenter and payed 100 bucks for them each. I also picked up 2 120GB ver for 150 there as well. It may still be older technology but still gets the work done. I picked them up 2/3 yrs ago. Run perfect and fast for my gaming rig.
