RunCore’s new low-cost SSDs now shipping
RunCore’s new line of SSDs is now shipping, and the drives are priced very competitively. They’re available in 16, 32, 64, and 128gb capacities and should retail at $69, $119, $199, and $389. Price/performance ratio is good, with read/write speeds on the drives at about 75/40 mb/s.
One slick addition is the onboard USB slave port which should make the process of cloning a netbook’s original drive a fairly painless procedure.
At the opposite end of the spectrum is RunCore’s 256gb 2.5″ SATA SSD, which boasts peak read/write speeds of 230/150 mb/s, respectively. They’ll be priced at $699 – not bad considering the size and performance, but still quite a leap from the 1.8″ pricing.
Still, this should be a sign of good things to come for netbook users looking to upgrade to an SSD.
