Super Talent has launched a remarkable product line with the UltraDrive Series. Today we looked at the consumer version UltraDrive ME in 128GB capacity and were once again overwhelmed at how well the Barefoot controller stacks up to Intel's SSD controller products that still cost considerably more for comparable capacity.
If you are a consumer then the UltraDrive ME is great value compared to the Intel drives. There are other Barefoot drives on the market that are cheaper than the UltraDrive ME, but you may have to search for them. At 369.00 USD shipped from Newegg you really can't go wrong with a 128GB drive. How much did you spend on that 150GB Raptor just a few years ago? Even the 256GB UltraDrive ME is a deal at 619.99 when compared to some of the other Barefoot drives. The Runcore 256GB drive we reviewed last week came with a 999.00 price tag.
For the last few days the UltraDrive ME took over storage duty in my notebook and I am happy to report the drive is awesome. Really, how else do you want me to explain instant Outlook access (with 12 email accounts) and boot times that have been cut in half? The stuttering issues that plagued the JMicron drives are now a thing of the past and with prices continuing to fall now is really a good time to purchase your first SSD.
