OCZ ships sub-$500 128GB solid-state drive

OCZ SATA II SSDs

OCZ this morning added to its Solid State Drive range with the Core Series. The 2.5-inch, SATA II-based flash storage is built to drive down the prices of SSDs to where even large drives are affordable; a 128GB drive (new to OCZ) costs less than half the price of the company's normal 64GB drive. Despite the reduced cost, the drives are claimed to be ten times faster in seeking data than a rotating notebook hard drive and transfer that data more quickly as well, reading between 120 to 135 Mbps and writing at between 80 to 93 Mbps.

The drives are also claimed to be as reliable as the pricier drives, running for about 1.5 million hours of continuous use while still consuming half as much power as a traditional hard disk. All the Core Series drives should be available soon, with prices of $169 for a 32GB drive, $259 for a 64GB version, and a $479 for a flagship 128GB version.
