Huge storage in a small package
Mushkin has announced that its new mSATA SSD is now available for purchase. The drive is very small using a MO-300 mSATA form factor measuring 50.80 x 29.85 x 4.85 mm. Despite the small size the SSD has 480 GB of storage.
This would be the perfect upgrade drive for an ultrabook or other small form factor computing device that uses mSATA storage. The drive has TRIM support, SMART support, and built-in ECC. Mushkin uses high-speed MLC NAND chips in the storage device.
The firmware is user upgradable and the SSD uses a SandForce SF-2281 SSD processor with unthrottled IOPS. The SSD is available in the US right now for $499.99.
