Active releases a new set of SSDs

Solid state hard drives are increasing in popularity mainly because more are reaching the consumer market, therefore driving down prices. But most are still a bit pricey. Active has a new 1.8-inch set, however, that’s a bit more affordable if you don’t mind forgoing storage capacity.

The new 1.8-inch Turbo ZIF line are available in 32GB and 64GB sizes. Both drives canĀ achieveĀ 100MB/s read and 85MB/s write speeds. Sure, they aren’t the fastest in town or the largest, but at $169 and $299, they are among the most affordable 1.8-inch options. [Amazon via PC Launches]
