Apotop, the Taiwanese creator of peripherals and creative gadgets is entering the Solid State Drive market with its new range of S3C drives. All S3C Sata III drives come equipped with the SM2246 controller Synchronous NAND Flash.
These drives will be available in 64GB, 128GB, 256GB and 512GB variants and will have maximum read speeds of around 500 MB/s while write speeds come in a little slower at 300 MB/s.
“The Apotop S3C SSD is Ultra Slim and only 7mm in height. The S3C comes with a 3 year limited warranty and has RoHS, CE, FCC, VCCI and BSMI certifications.”
“The S3C uses NAND Flash Multi-Level Cell (MLC) NAND Synchronous Flash Memory and the SATA III 6Gb/s Interface is backwards compatible with SATA II 3Gb/s.”
Pricing and availability information isn’t available at the moment but this could lead to more budget SSD options becoming available in the market.

KitGuru Says: Prices of SSD’s have dropped significantly so far this year. These lower prices are helping pave the way for more companies to join the market , which could lead to better competition and even lower prices. How many of you guys still need to get an SSD? It’s definitely worth investing in one as it’s probably the best upgrade you can make for overall performance.
