(Auszug aus der Pressemitteilung)

FREMONT, Calif. and GLASGOW, United Kingdom, Oct. 7, 2010 – Lexar Media, a leading global provider of memory products for digital media,

today introduced a 1.8″ footprint version of the award-winning Crucial RealSSD
C300 product line. The 1.8″ profile, which is approximately 40% smaller than
the standard 2.5″ drive, provides an excellent solid-state storage option for
the most portable products such as ultra-thin laptops, netbooks, and tablet PCs
– without sacrificing performance and capacity. Based upon the Micron RealSSD
product design and innovation, the new Crucial RealSSD C300 1.8″ drive utilizes
(multi-level cell) MLC NAND, advanced controller technology, and optimized NAND
management, which together improve boot up and application load times
dramatically and enhance overall system performance. No moving parts provides
for quieter, cooler, and more durable solutions compared to traditional hard
disk drives.

With impressive read speeds of up to 355MB/s and write speeds up to 215MB/s,
the Crucial C300 1.8″ drive natively supports SATA 6Gb/s, and is backwards
compatible with the SATA 3Gb/s interface. The new Crucial RealSSD C300 1.8″,
like the standard 2.5″ format, is available in 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB
capacities, and comes with a limited three-year warranty.

„There’s a broad range of design and interface options emerging in the
ultra-portable laptop market and this growing segment is trying to achieve a
balance between performance, capacity, and cost,“ said Robert Wheadon, Lexar
Media senior worldwide SSD product manager. „Our new drive is an excellent
storage option for ultra-portable products; they meet the need for a smaller
footprint, and provide uncompromised performance at an affordable price.“
