SuperTalent MasterDrive SX series spec'd, listed
220MB/s read, 200MB/s write, starting at €149
We stumbled upon several SuperTalent MasterDrive SX listings, and these new MLC-based SSDs caught our eye, mainly because of their pricing.
You can't exactly call a 64GB drive cheap if it sells for €149, but with read and write speeds of 220MB/s and 200MB/s respectively, it's by far the cheapest product in this performance category.
If you need more capacity, you can also go for the 128GB or 256GB versions, priced at €281 and €537. Once again, you can't say that's cheap, but it's still some €50 less than similarly spec'd drives on the market.
Although SSDs are still a bit to pricey for most users, the prices are slowly getting more acceptable. A MasterDrive SX still costs twice as much as a Raptor with the same capacity, but the 64GB version still looks like a good deal.
