Active Media Products Unveils 1.8-Inch PATA Turbo ZIF SSD

Active Media Products announced that it has released its new 32GB and 64GB 1.8-inch PATA ZIF SSDs (Solid State Drives) that support read speeds up to 100MB/sec and, thanks to their DRAM cache, reach write speeds up to 85MB/sec.

According to the statement, with no moving parts, SaberTooth ZT is rugged enough for use in industrial, embedded and network computing applications where a very compact yet high speed storage solution is needed. Its PATA / IDE ZIF interface supports PIO mode 4 and UDMA mode 6. It also supports SMART commands. The ZT includes excellent ECC, wear leveling and bad block management technologies that improve reliability and extend endurance. These drives have the same physical dimensions as industry standard 1.8-inch HDDs, measuring only 2.8 x 2.1 x 0.2 inches (71 x 54 x 5 mm), making them an easy plug-in replacement in many laptops and netbooks.

SaberTooth SSD Advantages
SaberTooth SSDs offer a multitude of advantages over HDDs including:
- Substantially faster bootup and application load speeds;
- Consume far less power than HDDs, which means you’ll enjoy longer battery life and greater productivity;
- Lighter weight than an HDD;
- No moving parts;
- Completely silent operation;
- Produce less heat than an HDD;
- More rugged and reliable than an HDD.

“The SaberTooth ZT removes the performance tradeoffs that have plagued slim 1.8″ ZIF drives for so long. Now you can get a truly fast ZIF drive that still fits in a standard 1.8″ form factor. By incorporating a DRAM cache, we’ve dramatically improved write speeds over other ZIF drives”, stated Active Media Products’ VP of Sales, Jerry Thomson.

Part numbers and current pricing on Amazon are as follows: N32G-PATAZIF-ZT $169.95, N64G-PATAZIF-ZT $299.95.
