128GB SSD for Laptops from Toshiba

Toshiba 128GB SSDToshiba plans on ramping up production on 128GB solid state drives for notebooks starting next year. The new drives will be available in 1.8-inch and 2.5-inch form factors.

Toshiba will ship three solid state drives with SATA interfaces, including 32GB, 64GB and 128GB versions.

The maximum read speed is 100MB a second, and the maximum write speed of 40MB a second with the SATA2 interface (transfer rate of 3Gbps), which is compliant with high speed serial interface. The estimated operating life is 1,000,000 hours.

A 128GB SSD capacity is the minimum required for users to adopt them without feeling like they’re sacrificing too much compared to hard disk drives. Just a year ago the big announcements were about 32GB flash hard drives, which are far too small for most users.
