Super Talent Offers SSD Upgrades for Eee Netbooks


By Shane McGlaun

The netbook is one of the most popular categories in the notebook market right now. According to recent numbers form DisplaySearch netbooks accounted for 20% of the total notebook market in Q1 2009 and sales keep growing.

Asus sired the netbook category with its Eee netbooks back in 2007 and some of those early machines have tiny SSDs for storage. Super Talent has announced a new line of upgrade SSDs for owners of the Eee 900, 901, 901A, 901 GO, and S101 netbooks.

The SSDs are offered in MLC and SLC flavors with the MLC variety coming in 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB capacities. Read speeds for the MLC drives are up to 150MB/s and write speeds are 100MB/s. The SLC drives offer better performance with read speeds of 170MB/s and write speeds of 130MB/s. The MLC 16GB drive sells for $85.99, the 32GB version is $125.99, and the 64GB version is $219.99.
