Super Talent sent out a press release earlier today, announcing its new line of 1.8-inch Micro-SATA solid state drives (SSD). Developed for laptops, MasterDrive KX SSDs are available in capacities up to 120GB and are capable of 120MB/sec read and 40MB/sec write speeds.

Super Talent Technology, a leading manufacturer of Flash storage solutions and DRAM memory modules, today released a new line of 1.8-inch Micro-SATA SSDs.

At merely 5mm thick, these Micro-SATA SSDs are slimmer than most 1.8-inch hard drives, and hold up to 120GB of data. “In terms of performance, power consumption, and shock and vibration resistance the MasterDrive KX is substantially better than hard drives. The MasterDrive KX is an excellent upgrade for laptop users looking for greater reliability or to accelerate bootup and load times”, Super Talent Marketing Director, Joe James explained.

Built with MLC NAND Flash, the MasterDrive KX is offered in 30GB, 60GB and 120GB capacities. With 0.1ms access time and 120MB/sec and 40MB/sec max sequential read and write speeds, these SSDs provide lightning fast access to files. The Micro-SATA connector in a 1.8-inch form factor makes these SSDs an ideal upgrade for UMPCs (Ultra Mobile PCs).
MasterDrive KX SSDs are available now. Prices range from $299 to $679, depending on the capacity. If you'd like to read more, Super Talent's entire press release can be found here.
