Super Talent Intros Value SSDs Starting at $65

Super Talent today announced a new value solid state drive product line dubbed Super Talent VSSD that the company says brings performance and solid-state technology together at an affordable price.

The catch with a lower price is smaller capacity. Not only that, but the smaller capacity drives also don't perform as well as the more expensive, roomier drives.

The upper tier 64GB VSSD will be priced at around $175 and is capable of sequential read speeds up to 150 MB/sec and sequential write speeds up to 100 MB/sec. The entry-level, and comparatively puny 8GB model will be $65 and is capable of sequential read speeds up to 90 MB/sec and sequential write speeds up to 30 MB/sec.

Check out more technical details from Super Talent.

    8 GB? Not sure but I don't even think that will hold Windows 7 will it LOL. The smart option on the SSD's is to not buy and force the prices down.

    8GB isn't even big enough to use as a boot drive. I'm glad to see a variety of products hitting the market place but some capacities need not apply.

    lol, my microSD card is roomier.

    I guess Ubuntu would fit on it, but Windows 7 won't. Would Mac OS X 10.6? I doubt it.

    Wow, Super Talent: We aren't retarded.

    What a joke... you can get "entry level" 30/32GB drives for $80-90 (and even those are a tough sell). Who in their right mind wants 1/4 of the capacity with lower performance at ~3/4 of the price?

    8GB WTF!

    I can waste that with windows 95 and a few vintage games much less any thing remotely close to modern. Also some of us are able to get 500GB+ class hard drives for that price.
  • Good Lord! :O

    That beat up old drive looks like a Photo Shopped Image with the lettering super imposed over it!

    Talk about a Dirty Picture

    8GB REALLY!! really!! you got to be sh_tting me right what will that hold my camera card is 16GB my MP3 card is 32GB why would I or anyone else need a 8GB drive. Even windows XP would just fit on it with antivirus loaded & needed software where do you put the rest of your data oh thats right on the old 160GB you just replaced lol. Wow even 160GB seems rather small now days. most like myself have at least 4 or 5 1TB drives installed 5 for me & a 500GB as my boot sry 8GB is a fail thanks but no thanx lol.

    If there is nothing else that the 8GB model offers, then I just lost all respect for Super Talent storage.
