We're all familiar with the benefits of solid state disk drives in certain applications with lower power requirements, faster speeds and greater shock resistance than regular hard drives being some of those. Up until just recently, capacity has been a real limiting factor in certain applications such as laptops. Today OCZ Technology announced additions to its lineup with two fast SATA II drives in a 2.5" format. Available in either 32GB or 64GB capacities, these drives offer read/write speeds of 120MB/100MB per second. The svelte size offered by the 2.5" format makes them ideal for some of today's ultra-slim notebooks as well as other high-end mobile devices needing rugged storage. Other salient features are RAID support, 1500G shock resistance and 2,000,000 hour MTBF. And dang if that brushed alloy housing doesn't look pretty cool as well.
