Crucial intros 1.8in SSD series
Netbook upgraders take note
Memory specialist Crucial has released a set of 1.8in SSDs.
Based on its C300 RealSSD line of notebook drives, the new, smaller versions are intended for folk looking to upgrade netbooks or sub-notebooks that are too slim to take 2.5in drives.
The 1.8in drives use MLC (Multi-Level Cell) Flash and are available in capacities of 64, 128 and 256GB, all three offering a read speed of 355MB/s. Write speeds, however, run to 75MB/s, 140MB/s and 215MB/s, respectively.
The solid-state trio are priced at £96 (64GB), £192 (128GB) and £384 (256GB). They're available now direct from Crucial. ®
Re: no ZIF variant
SuperTalent and UnCore both do ZIF PATA SSDs:
no ZIF variant
there are loads of people around with small laptops with 1.8" PATA drives which have ZIF connectors
please please please, will these manufacturers product more SSDs for us?
the choice is currently quite limited - seemingly only photofast haven't neglected us.
