MemoRight will have stiff competition from larger SSD manufacturers in the mSATA market. ADATA is making a push and so are several others. Given the quality exhibited by MemoRight in the past and the performance we saw today, I'd take their MS-701 model over anyone else's right now. The performance of the MS-701 is amazing for an mSATA drive with just four flash chips onboard. At first I was a bit worried about the number of channels used from the flash processor unit, something you can clearly see in the IOPS rating, but the 701 really hit it out of the ball park.
There is one big mystery though right now and that is wallet depreciation factor. How much is your wallet or bank account going to shrink when you buy the MemoRight MS-701? I really can't tell you because I don't know and Google wasn't a help this time. The closest competitor tit-for-tat is the RunCore T50 and that is listed in the US for $399, but for the 120GB capacity size. Even if MemoRight were to hit that same price with the 240GB drive it is still a big chunk of change for a solid state drive in 2012. If MemoRight can hit $350 for the 240GB model then I'm sold.
The last thing I want to touch on is the ultrabook market. At the beginning we were pitched all of this performance and the slim design, but as companies start to roll out their 2012 models the slim design stuck, but the performance just isn't there. Many of the ultrabook manufactures are stuffing these anorexic notebooks with SSDs based on old controllers that were cutting edge and fast two and three years ago.
I'm disheartened to say it, but even in 2012, your best upgrade for your 'cutting edge' notebook will still be a high performance SSD. Right now your best choice for an mSATA SSD is the MemoRight MS-701.
