Verbatim (http://www.verbatim.com) has announced the availability of its 2.5-inch SATA Solid State Drives (SSD) and upgrade kits. They’re available in both SATA II and SATA III interfaces.
Verbatim SSDs contain no moving parts, resulting in greater mechanical stability and reliability, increased shock resistance, silent operation, and reduced power consumption for increased battery life, according to Mark Rogers, Verbatim product manager, Flash Memory. The line of 2.5-inch SATA II Solid State Drives are available individually or with an upgrade kit.
Upgrade kits are bundled with NTI Echo smart cloning software. Also included is a special casing that converts your existing hard drive into an external drive for additional storage space, as well as all components needed for desktop installations, including a 3.5-inch bay adapter, mounting screws, and a Molex power cable (for optional desktop use).
Verbatim SATA II SSDs are available in 64GB, 128GB and 256GB capacities and provide read speeds up to 270MB/second, and write speeds up to 225MB/second. Offering even higher performance on SATA III based systems, Verbatim SATA III SSDs take full advantage of the SATA III bandwidth and are capable of achieving read and write speeds over 500MB/second. Available in capacities of 120GB, 240GB and 480GB, Verbatim SATA III SSDs feature the SandForce 2281 controller, which incorporates advanced wear leveling, EDC/ECC, and garbage collection algorithms.
