Mushkin announces "Europe" SSD series

Written by Jon Worrel

Its first solid state drives

Just recently, Mushkin decided to follow the SSD bandwagon and release its own line of products for this competitive market that has recently begun to showcase itself. Yet what strikes us in this announcement is not the decision itself, but rather the name that the company chose to represent its start in a new area of focus.

The company's first MLC Solid State Disk lineup is going to be named "Europe" after the woman in Greek mythology named Europa who was abducted by Zeus for romantic purposes. “Once, Zeus felt in love with the beautiful Europe, now, every speed enthusiast can do the same,” smiles Steffen Eisenstein, CEO of Mushkin Logistic GmbH and looks on the aluminium dressed SSDs.

The drives will come in the 2.5-inch size format at 32GB, 64GB, 128GB, 192GB, and 256GB capacities. As far as performance is concerned, this series is capable of 150MBs read speeds and 90MB/s write speeds. Yet most interestingly, the drives are equipped with an integrated mini-USB 2.0 connector which allow them to be used as external storage devices without the need for an additional power supply.


Mushkin ultimately hopes that consumers will be just as taken by Europe as Zeus was and offers a 3 year warranty and exclusive aluminum packaging.

Ironically, we only see these drives available on Mushkin's European site at the moment, with pricing ranging from €106.53 for the 32GB model to €502.09 for 192GB with the 256GB model currently unlisted.
