CES 2010: Crucial RealSSD C300 6Gbps SATA SSD Demo

Postby Apoptosis » Tue Jan 05, 2010 10:10 pm

Last month Micron raised the performance bar for SSDs by announcing its RealSSD C300 SSD. Today, the company announced that the drive would be coming to the retail market next month under the Crucial product name. Legit Reviews got to personally see what the retail drive will look like today and even got a demo that we recorded to show you!

The Crucial RealSSD C300 drive will come in a standard 2.5-inch form factor, supporting 128GB and 256GB capacities, and will come with a limited five-year warranty. Benchmark tests have shown the Crucial C300 to be the fastest desktop and notebook SSD available to end consumers, boasting scorching-fast read speeds of up to 355MB/s. The Crucial C300 natively supports SATA 6Gb/s—the next generation high-speed storage interface—and is backwards compatible with the SATA 3Gb/s interface. Pricing has not been finalized as of yet, but we were told the sum of $799 for the 256GB more than once during our conversation with Crucial today.

Looks great. $800 (Probably $1200 over here) sounds a bit overly expensive though. Have you done a price vs. performance comparison?

Not yet they haven't given drives out yet. Even Anand doesn't have his yet ;)

Lol. Good 'ol Anand.

Thanks for the update. It'd good that SATA 6G will finally have a reason to exist and/or really put to use.

Still $800. It'll be more over here, because a Kingston 128GB is about $270.
