To make the SuperNova Super Talent's most secure and efficient SSD to date, it uses highly prescreened ONFI synchronous MLC NAND flash memory that offer enterprise levels of reliability. In addition, SuperNova features thermal conductive silicon padding, which prevents overheating and requires less cooling. These two features help make the drive ideal for server use, along with its proprietary RAISE technology. Super Talent claims that RAISE technology virtually eliminates unrecoverable read errors.

The SuperNova drive is available in 128 GB and 256 GB capacities, which Super Talent has begun shipping to its distributors today. For more information on the SuperNova SSD, check out its data sheet here.

    Thermal conductive padding? But why? Seems like an unncessary cost add on.

    I thought SSD's run cool enough to not need them. Also, most data centres have specific cooling (for example, always keeping the data centre at 15-20c).

    Generally speaking, I don't want a piece of electronics that will go 'Super Nova'

    Their site does not display the controller information but based on the speeds, I would say it is a LSI SandForce SF-2200 drive. I haven't seen or come across the pricing of these drives.

    The webpage says it's a SandForce 22xx Controller.

    At least a general idea as to the price range would be helpful to figure out if I even want to read the specs.
    Takgets like "large corporations or a small companies" are usually the same as saying you can not afford it :-)

    What about small corporations or large companies? Is this not for them?
