Specifications, Pricing and Availability
SuperSSpeed's product specifications sheet is made more for distributers or resellers since it has some of the potential features listed. A good example is the in-drive UPS notation. The S302 as it arrived does not have a SupeCap, but if you wanted to order a large number of drives direct from the factory, this is an option.
All of the major capacity sizes are covered from 60GB to 480GB. The performance specifications are listed, but change as new base firmware becomes available. Today we're using final 5.0.3 firmware, the TRIM fix on a base 240GB S302 drive.
SuperSSpeed backs their S302 MLC flash models with a three year warranty. The accessory package we received includes a desktop adapter bracket, mounting screws and a paper installation manual.
At this time SuperSSpeed does not sell S302 drives in their Amazon store, but we know product is coming. Given that SuperSSpeed has the inside track on Intel NAND flash and that flash makes up the bulk of an SSDs price, we think the SuperSSpeed S302 has a good shot at disrupting the current pricing for SandForce 240GB SSDs.
The bottom has already dropped out and we are seeing drives well under $1 per GB, but many companies are finding these prices unsustainable, yet SuperSSpeed should be in a good position to fight it out in this area.
