Imation SSD drives
Imation has entered the burgeoning field of SSD storage with two sets of drives, designed in collaboration with Mtron. The first of these are the MOBI 3000s, SATA disks meant for the consumer market; these consist of 16 and 32GB 2.5-inch drives, as well as 16, 32 and 64GB 3.5-inch models. The drives are capable of reading at 100MBs, and writing at 80MBs; random access speed is just 0.1ms. Prices start at approximately $700.
The PRO 7000 SSDs are geared exclusively for corporate use, and read at 120MBs while writing at 90MBs. The drives are further equipped with silver and aluminum casing, instead of the MOBI 3000's plastic. The same sizes are available, but a 32GB PRO costs $1,160. [via I4U News]
