SanDisk has today announced a new super-fast consumer SSD drive carrying the name Extreme SSD. The drive comes in both 120GB and 240GB capacities. The name Extreme is earned through the sequential read and write speeds of 550MB/s and 520MB/s respectively over a SATA III 6Gb/s connection.

As for price, the 120GB model will cost $189.99 and the 240GB is $399.99. There’s also a 480GB model planned to arrive later this year, but it will carry an extortionate price of $749.99.

It appears to be a Sandforce 2281 based ssd judging by the sizes.

Considering there are already tons of drives using the same configuration available, it's a little too late.

Intel made changes to Sandforce fimrware to eliminate bsod before they released the 520 ssd. Sandforce is currently not allowed to share this fixes.

SSDs need to drop in price already. How come they're still so very expensive?

They aren't that expensive really for the raw increase in performance increase you get.

Yeah I got very lucky in that my dad knows the owner of a local store here and got my SSD for 260 dollars, prices on them are still to high to overtake HDD's.
