Super Talent MasterDrive SX SAM28GM25S 128GB SSD


Solid State Disks have grown immensely popular these past few months. It has been interesting times with the release of both Indilinx and Samsung MLC controllers. The new Samsung controller proves to be fast and reliable as we check out the 128GB...

Very fast all round performance ; Proven infrastructure with Samsung technology

Short 1 year warranty

When you say the name Super Talent, the first thing that comes to my mind is the DRAM manufacturer. Super Talent is a company in the business to manufacture DDR, DDR2 and DDR3 memory modules. They were also quick to jump on the flash storage...

Worth every dollar


I can sustain 85 MB/sec reads and writes to a FireWire 800 stripe of two disks. That is as fast as the spindles can go; 2 x WD BLACK 320GB 2.5".

Fast, very fast. I replaced my boot drive in my MacBook Pro (2007 model) and performance is amazing. Mac OS X swaps quite a bit so the fast swap space makes a big performance difference. I'm no longer disk i/o bound

SUPER TALENT MasterDrive SX SAM28GM25S 2.5" 128GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Quick and responsive. Load times obliterated. Installs nice and smooth. Small, silent, efficient... Haven't encountered any stuttering, only great performance

A hefty investment for penny pinchers like myself, but well worth it

Worth considering for your pc/notebook.


Very, very fast ; I'm not posting throughput as the fellow below me did and my numbers are close enough to his to refer to ; Plenty of space for any user that doesn't back up every cd and film in his library ; Easy to install in notebooks... for pcs,...

Price, probably. It's comparable to other drives of the same size, but it'll still set anyone without a well paying job back quite a bit ; It MIGHT run mildly warm, or it could just be this notebook, as it has equipment surrounding the drive. Even so,...

Samsung Controller


These drives use the new generation samsung controller.

I have just recieved this drive, and installed it in my Dell Studio XPS 16 ; I just wanted to let everybody know that I have recieved two email responses from Super Talent (one from sales and one from tech support) that have verified that these drives...
