SanDisk's 32GB 2.5" drive to be priced at $350

Back in early January, SanDisk introduced its 32GB 1.8" SSD UATA 5000 for notebook computers. The Flash SSD drive promised sustained reads of 62MB/sec and a 2 million hour MTBF. Today, SanDisk has announced the 2.5" SATA version of the drive.

"The SanDisk 2.5-inch SSD brings the extreme durability, outstanding performance and low power consumption of solid-state flash memory to the entire notebook computer market," said SanDisk VP Amos Marom. "As SanDisk continues to drive innovation in flash memory, the per-gigabyte price of SSD storage will come down and SSD capacity will go up. PC manufacturers and consumers will find it easier and easier to move away from rotating hard disks to the superior experience of SSDs."

The 2.5" version of the drive is slightly faster than its 1.8" sibling. It features sustained reads of 67MB/sec, has an average access speed of 0.11 milliseconds and can boot Windows Vista Enterprise in 30 seconds. This compares to 62MB/sec, 0.12 milliseconds and 35 seconds respectively for the 1.8" drive.

The 32GB 2.5" SSD SATA 5000 is available now for systems builders and is priced at $350 each for volume orders.
