Charlotte, NC – Verbatim, the global leader in data storage technology including USB flash drives, portable hard drives, solid state drives, CDs, Blu-ray disks and memory cards, announces the availability of its 2.5” SATA Solid State Drives (SSD) and upgrade kits.

Available in both SATA II and SATA III interfaces, Verbatim SSDs featuring ultra-fast data transfer rates, faster system boot-up, shut down, and increased system responsiveness.  Verbatim’s new SSDs are the ideal hard drive replacements for users seeking a performance and reliability upgrade.   Verbatim SSDs contain no moving parts, resulting in greater mechanical stability and reliability, increased shock resistance, silent operation, and reduced power consumption for increased battery life.

Verbatim’s line of 2.5” SATA II Solid State Drives are available individually or with an upgrade kit that makes upgrading from hard drives simple and easy.  Upgrade kits are bundled with NTI Echo smart cloning software, which allows users to copy their entire hard drive, including operating system, without the need to reinstall programs or update drivers.  Also included is a special casing that converts your existing hard drive into an external drive for additional storage space as well as all components needed for desktop installations, including a 3.5” bay adapter, mounting screws, and a Molex power cable (for optional desktop use).

“Verbatim’s new SSDs and upgrade kits make upgrading your system’s performance simple and secure, eliminating complicated steps and the risk of losing data,” stated Mark Rogers, Verbatim Product Manager, Flash Memory.  “Whether you are a computer enthusiast, road warrior, student or business user, Verbatim’s SSDs will give your system more speed and responsiveness for everyday tasks.”

Verbatim SATA II SSDs are available in 64GB, 128GB and 256GB capacities and provide Read speeds up to 270MB/second, and Write speeds up to 225MB/second.  Intended for installations in computers with SATA II interfaces, these drives offer solid performance and reliability featuring an advanced SSD controller and are value priced.

Offering even higher performance on SATA III based systems, Verbatim SATA III SSDs take full advantage of the SATA III bandwidth and are capable of achieving Read and Write speeds over 500MB/second. Available in capacities of 120GB, 240GB and 480GB, Verbatim SATA III SSDs feature the widely acclaimed SandForce 2281 controller; which incorporates advanced wear leveling, sophisticated EDC/ECC, and garbage collection algorithms to maintain stable and reliable performance.
