Lexar Media releases new Crucial solid-state drive products

Compatible with the Crucial SK01 External Drive Storage kit

By CBR Staff Writer

Lexar Media, a provider of memory products for digital media, has revved-up its line of Crucial solid-state drive (SSD) products. The company said that the new 256GB Crucial M225 SSD offers a read speed up to 250MB/sec and a write speed up to 200MB/sec.

The company said that the new Crucial SSDs enhance system performance by improving operating system boot and application load times. They utilise a SATA 2.0 (3Gb/s) interface and feature MLC NAND flash components housed in a 2.5-inch drive enclosure, allowing easy installation of a Crucial M225 SSD.

In addition, the Crucial SK01 External Drive Storage kit is compatible with all three Crucial M225 solid-state drive products. The company said that this device delivers the benefits of SSD technology to a user’s desktop, or as a portable storage device via a USB port. The kit includes a 2.5-inch USB 2.0 external enclosure, a 3.5-inch SATA 3Gb/s hot-swappable drive bay, and a 5.25-inch drive bay bracket. The Crucial SK01 kit comes with a five year limited warranty.

Robert Wheadon, senior worldwide product marketing manager of Lexar Media, said: “By upgrading their system with a solid-state drive, mobile computer users will enjoy a faster, more rugged system with storage built for mobility. The fact that SSDs don’t have any moving parts makes Crucial solid-state drives quieter, cooler, and more durable than traditional hard drives.”
