Active Media’s latest solid state disk is designed to fit into tight spaces. While most of the company’s SSDs are either 2.5 inch disks or PCIe cards, the ActiveMedia SaberTooth ZT Turbo ZIF SSD is a 1.8 inch disk that could fit into MP3 players or smaller netbooks such as the Asus Eee PC T91 or HP Mini 1000.

The disk is just 0.2 inches thick and uses a ZIF connector instead of the SATA connector used by most of its bigger siblings.

The SaberTooth ZT Turbo is available in 32GB or 64GB sizes and can handle read speeds up to 100MB/s and write speeds up to 85MB/s.

These little guys don’t come cheap though. The 64GB model sells for $290, while the 32GB SSD will set you back $170.

  1. Correct me if I’m wrong, but doesn’t RunCore market a similar form factor SSD at a cheaper price?

  2. RunCore does market a similar product but it is usually “back-ordered.” Also, I know plenty of people who would advise against buying RunCore because of past quality problems. Aside from this little issue, they’re also quite a bit slower if the speeds Brad quoted are even close to accurate. The RunCore drive is cheap for a reason.

    I bought a 32GB drive from Mtron and love it, but a 64gb might be just what the Doc ordered if these get good reviews.
