SuperTalent's 512GB SSD now shipping

Written by

Available for a painful $1449


Although several companies have announced 512GB SSDs, SuperTalent is the first one to actually ship its MasterDrive RX 512GB.

Apart from the 512GB model, the MasterDrive RX is also available in in 128GB and 256GB capacities. The smaller models are available in SLC and MLC flavours, with read/write speeds of 230/200 and 230/160 MB/s respectively. The 512GB drive is MLC-based. Note that MLC drives come with a 2-year warranty, while SLC drives are backed by a 3-year warranty.

It's nice to see SSDs are starting to catch up with HDDs in terms of capacity, but there's still a long way to go, as WD's Caviar Green is already available in a 2TB version. One other thing to note is that SuperTalent's drive will set you back $1449, and at that price, you can get yourself a 2TB HDD, along with a nice mid-range PC to put it in.

Other vendors are expected to start shipping their own 512GB SSDs soon, but don't expect them to be any cheaper than SuperTalent's drive.
