Specifications, Availability and Pricing

The Team Group Xtreem-G1 uses the IDX110M00-LC controller and 166 MHz Elpida cache modules that we have come to know quite well. A glance at the specifications and later the pricing, I thought Team might have used the IDX110M01 "ECO" controller that we found on the G.Skill Falcon II, but that was not the case after opening the drive up.

 

Like all solid state drives, the G1 offers superior shock protection when compared to traditional platter based drives and the access times, being either random or sequential are much lower. Other benefits of SSDs include cooler operating temperatures in most cases and also lower power consumption.

 

Team is offering the Xtreem-G1 in 60, 120 and 250GB capacities. I was not able to locate any G1 products in the US or UK just yet, but did find that South Africa has several in at least two online shops. Instead of trying to convert the price over to USD, we just compared the cost of the Team Xtreem-G1 to other Indilinx Barefoot controlled drives of the same capacity and from the same reseller. While researching I found that the Team Group Xtreem-G1 60 and 120GB capacity drives were priced lower than other drives using the same controller.
