Corsair announces Storage Solutions SSD

Corsair announce Storage Solutions Solid State Drive

 

Date: January 27th, 2008 - SYDNEY - Corsair, today announced the release of their first Solid State Drive (SSD), the 128GB Storage Solutions S128, available throughout Australia and New Zealand through Altech Computers.

 

"Corsair enjoys a well-deserved reputation for delivering high performance and rock solid stability with its memory products and this holds true for our new Solid State Drives," said Jim Carlton, VP of Marketing at Corsair. "While SSDs have been available for some time, we have been working with our partners to bring to market a drive that combines speed with reliability, without breaking the bank."

 

The Corsair Storage Solutions S128 is a 2.5" form-factor, 128GB SATA II drive built around a Samsung controller, and delivering maximum read and write-speeds of 90 MB/sec and 70 MB/sec respectively. Samsung-based SSDs are found in many OEM systems and are highly regarded for compatibility, reliability and performance. The Corsair S128 can be used in any notebook or desktop system with a SATA II interface, and is an ideal solution for notebook users looking to increase both reliability and battery life, thanks to the higher durability and lower power requirements of SSDs compared to mechanical hard drives.

Antony Sheen, Altech's Managing Director said "Altech identified SSD as an emerging opportunity more than 12 months ago and has since taken a lead position as an SSD supplier to the Australian channel. With our close partner Corsair recognised as a leading vendor in memory products and with the emergence of SSD technologies, it was inevitable that they would enter this exciting new market. As has happened in memory, flash and power supply segments, Corsair will no doubt deliver market leading SSD solutions as the segment develops."

 

"The S128 is just the first step in a full line of SSD products from Corsair," continued Carlton. "Our engineering team is currently hard at work on even higher performance and higher-capacity drives with read and write-speeds expected to be in in excess of 200MB/s. Even more exciting is a version for the hardcore enthusiast that will utilize the PCI Express bus and promises speeds in excess of 400 MB/sec read and 325 MB/sec write."

 

Altech expects first stocks to arrive in all Australian warehouses by the first week of February and they are now available for pre-ordering online at http://www.altech.com.au or through the Altech national sales team.
