Super Talent has been in the industry for the last five years and in that time they have established themselves as a solid company that provides good products and remains fresh with their product lineup. They have focused their direction lately with SSD and Flash memory devices and taken risks using controllers such as the Indilinx Barefoot controller, that is still proving itself to consumers and reviewers alike. With state-of-the-art ISO 9001 certified manufacturing facilities in both USA and China, Super Talent has over 20 highly automated surface mount (SMT) assembly lines. The company relies on its 20-years of experience making memory products and adherence to strict quality standards to produce high quality products with outstanding reliability.

SSD devices are the storage medium of the future, and companies like NASA and the US government have been adopting these type of drives into their main systems due to the reliability of the Solid State Drives. No moving parts are the main reason that reliability is so high, as most storage devices have a hardware failure which causes the drives to become inoperable. With an SSD drive the drive has to be physically damaged to corrupt the data, and the drives are pretty tough and can take extreme pressure and heat variances and still keep working like a champ. At the moment SSD drives are a bit on the costly side, but as they become more of a mainstream product, we will see the prices begin to drop into the very affordable range. If you really have information that is highly valuable to you or your company this is the safest way to store it, as an SSD product is stable and reliable. Today we take a look at one of the premier SSD drives the UltraDrive FTM28GX25H 128GB and on paper it looks very good, letís see how it does in real time.
