Sound the alarm for hard disks—it looks like solid state drive prices have plunged enough to finally jump out of early adopter territory. California-based flash memory maker Super Talent is now offering a 128GB SSD for $US300 retail. That’s $US150 cheaper than a comparable offer from Dell and about $US4.95 cheaper per GB than Intel’s disks (though, granted, Intel’s runs faster).
The 2.5-inch FTM28GO25H claims a 100MB read rate and a 40MB write rate, faster than the “cheap” SSD modules of yesterday. If 128GB seems like too much space for you to handle, the company’s offering a similarly specced 64-GB model as well for $US179. [Super Talent via JKontherun]
