The drive is built on the usual 2.5-inch SATA form-factor, using the SATA 6 Gb/s and are powered by the SandForce SF-2281 SSD controller. The drive offers maximum sequential transfer speeds of 550MB/sec read, 500MB/sec write, with 4k random performance of 30,000 IOPS reads, 41,000 IOPS writes.

 

It uses the MLC NAND flash with 5,000 rewrite cycle life. The 120GB model of Galaxy's Laser GT SSD should sell for around $221. It's interesting to see how many companies are launching SSDs, but this is only a good thing. With more competition, the price is going to come down much quicker, which is great.
