Viking is best known for producing removable flash storage such as CompactFlash and SD cards. But now the company is throwing its hat in the laptop SSD space with a new line of 2.5 inch solid state disks.

The company will produce 2.5 inch SSDs for enterprise and consumer use. The enterprise version will feature a SCSI 6gb/s connection, while the consumer oriented SSD will be a SATA, 3Gb/s disk.

It might be a little while before we start to see these SSDs show up in laptops or other devices. The company is just starting to make samples available to OEMs.

  1. I bought a Dell mini9 a few months back with the 4 gb ssd. I thought I would be able to find a 32gb or even 16 gb ssd I could afford, but they have not come down in priced as I have hoped. I dont understand why cost so much more than a usb flash drive but maybe someday they won’t.

  2. It would make sense that a company that make flash drives and flash based cards would make flash based SSD’s.

    With more companies making SSD’s, the price will come down and innovation/quality will go up. I call it the ‘Walkman’ effect. It was expensive at first but competition came along and now one can find it or some thing similar at lower prices.

  3. Good news! The more players there are in the SSD market, the better it is for us consumers!
