SanDisk/RedSharkHigh Speed SSDs cost less

SanDisk has announced new SSD (Solid State Drive) products that might be ideal for upgrading existing video editing computers or for specifying new ones

A key attribute of the new storage devices is that despite their above-average speeds, the cost is less than for comparable devices.

The snappily-named SanDisk Ultra® Plus SSD is based on SanDisk's "industry leading" 19 nanometer process which the manufacturer claims is the world's smallest architecture for SSDs.

Drives are able to read at up to 530MB/Sec and reach up to 445MB/Sec when writing.

Available now

The new SSDs are available in the US now from Amazon.com and Microcenter.com in 64GB, 128GB and 256GB2 capacities carrying suggested retail prices of $74.99, $109.99 and $219.99, respectively.

As we've recently noticed in RedShark, SSD prices have been plummeting but usually at the lower performance end of the spectrum.

We're hoping that this could be the start of another change in the storage business: higher performance as well as higher capacities at lower prices.
