It looks like Panasonic is now a player in the SSD market, without much fanfare to be honest. The company looks to be re-branding OCZ drives, using OCZ's Indilinx Barefoot M10 controller.

The Panasonic-branded, OCZ-made drives were spotted in the famous Akihabara shopping district, with the new Panasonic Premium range of SSDs. These new SSDs come in retail packaging, including software and adapters to get them installed into desktop PCs. Panasonic is making its Premium SSDs available in three sizes: 120GB, 240GB and 480GB.

The new drives are based on OCZ's Indilinx Barefoot M10 controller, and should be using Toshiba's second-generation 19nm MLC NAND flash. These new drives are based on the SATA 6Gbps interface, with the performance side of things looking to match what OCZ has with its Vertex 460 SSDs.
