Default SanDisk Wants SSDs to Go Mainstream, Launches Affordable Lineup

SanDisk Corp., a leading supplier of various flash-based products, has unveiled a new family of solid-state drives (SSDs) that do not offer unprecedented performance, but boast with relatively affordable price and are likely to be broadly available. The company hopes that G3-series SSDs will finally drive flash-based storage into mainstream systems.

SanDisk’s C25-G3 and C18-G3 solid state drives – in 2.5” and 1.8” form-factors – will be available in 60GB, 120GB and 240GB capacities and will offer 200MB/s linear read speed as well as 140MB/s linear write speed. The new SSDs are based on multi-level cell (MLC) flash.

While performance levels of SanDisk’s G3-series are dramatically higher compared to hard disk drives (HDDs), they are hardly impressive compared to latest solid state drives by other manufacturers. What is noteworthy is that SanDisk has set manufacturer’s suggested retail prices of its 60GB, 120GB and 240GB units at $149, $249 and $499, respectively.
