sabertooth s4-2Active Media has introduced yet another new SSD designed for netbooks. The SaberTooth S4 series of solid state disks are Mini PCIe cards that use MLC NAND flash storage and 3Gbps SATA-II connections.

What does that mean in terms of performance? The modules can support sequential read speeds of up to 130MB/sec and sequential write speeds up to 50MB/sec. By comparison, the SaberTooth S3 can handle 95MB/sec read speeds and 70MB/sec write speeds.

The SaberTooth S4 SSDs are compatible with Asus Eee PC 900, 1000, and S101 series netbooks. They’re available in 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB versions. They’re priced at $50, $80, and $136, respectively.

  1. For SSD, the prices seem reasonable. I have no doubt they will go down in price eventually. Being on the trailing edge of technology might not be as cool as the leading edge but it is more affordable.
