Crucial intros 1.8in SSD series

Netbook upgraders take note

Memory specialist Crucial has released a set of 1.8in SSDs.

Based on its C300 RealSSD line of notebook drives, the new, smaller versions are intended for folk looking to upgrade netbooks or sub-notebooks that are too slim to take 2.5in drives.

The 1.8in drives use MLC (Multi-Level Cell) Flash and are available in capacities of 64, 128 and 256GB, all three offering a read speed of 355MB/s. Write speeds, however, run to 75MB/s, 140MB/s and 215MB/s, respectively.

The solid-state trio are priced at £96 (64GB), £192 (128GB) and £384 (256GB). They're available now direct from Crucial. ®
