Super Talent's 256GB SSD: ready for standard laptops

The notebook-friendly 2.5in form-factor drive is encased in an aluminium housing measuring 100 x 70 x 12.5mm. 2.5in HDDs that are 12.5mm thick are ten a penny, but Super Talent said its drive is 40 per cent thinner than existing 256GB SSDs.

That's because they're all chunky offerings aimed at military and industrial applications. Super Talent's drive is the first 256GB model aimed at regular notebooks.

But not slimline models, like the MacBook Air, which typically use drives that are just 9mm thick.

The drive is measures 12.5mm deep

Super Talent’s drive has an access time of 0.1ms, whilst its maximum sequential write speed is 50MB/s and 65MB/s during read mode.

Small knocks and scrapes shouldn’t cause problems for users, because the drive can withstand shocks of up to 1500G and vibrations topping 16G. The drive has a SATA interface.

The 256GB model goes under by the model number FSD56GC25H. The line-up also includes 128GB, 64GB, 32GB, 16GB and 8GB drives. Pricing for the 256GB product wasn't revealed...
