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.

They are all different designs, form factors, and performance. Class 10 Flash is much more expensive than Class 2 for the physical memory.

Though since most people get around just fine with class 2 so thats where the market is right now. If everyone were to decide that Class 2 flash isnt enough they'll all move up to class 10 they'll have to ramp up production of Class 10 and deminish class 2. Then it'll be class 2 that'll be more expensive than Class 10. We saw this happen with the Ram Market.
