Solid-state drives are all the rage these days, but the vast majority of them have Serial ATA interfaces. That's great for performance, but not so great if you're trying to upgrade an older notebook.
Super Talent hasn't forgotten about those legacy systems, because it's started shipping no fewer than seven new solid-state drives with IDE interfaces. The new SSDs purportedly triple the performance of previous IDE models, too.
The MasterDrive EX2 models ought to be the most affordable, because they're based on multi-level-cell flash memory. Super Talent offers 16, 32, 64, and 128GB variants, and it rates them all for up to 80MB/s sequential read speeds and 40MB/s sequential writes. You also get two years of warranty coverage.
For folks who want extra performance or longevity, the firm is also shipping single-level-cell-based MasterDrive IX2 SSDs. Those are only available in capacities up to 64GB, but they push top sequential write speeds to 60MB/s, and Super Talent covers them for three years.
