Kind of a strange offering, but I'm generally enthusiastic about a big brand like SanDisk getting involved in the retail storage space. Of course they're deeply involved already in the embedded and OEM markets.

I imagine this is price point marketing. If they are $20 lower than other brands they will probably sell just fine if the performance is reasonable.

Does it use a Sandforce 1200? The claimed speeds are suspiciously close. Such "non-SF write speeds" would be extradinary for a 60 GB model with modern flash (8 GB dies).

The sequential read and write speeds do seem to indicate that it is a SF-1200 drive. It'll be a shame for Sandisk to abandon its SSD controller R&D though, despite the poor performance of the G3.

They could always play on different parties simultaneously ;)

I don't know what they're using - the PR was very thin on detail. We're told we should get one in for review, so we'll see.
