Specifications, Pricing and Availability
MemoRight started out in the SSD business before you even heard of an SSD. They have their own enterprise and military controllers and with that knowledge comes a firm understanding of how to make a typical SSD better.
On the surface you might think the new 7mm Slim is a solid investment for future upgrades and it is, but that isn't what makes this drive better than your average consumer SSD. MemoRight chose to use some of their technology used in their enterprise class drives that delivers cleaner power to your SSD. When it comes to ultrabooks everything is reduced and that includes the battery size. When you have a large battery with several cells it is easy to deliver clean power, but when the number of cells is reduced, you don't have the same buffers in place. Because of this, MemoRight squeezed in their voltage protection circuitry on this new ultrabook-friendly drive.
MemoRight has already released four capacity sizes of the new FTM Plus Slim. Those are the typical SandForce 60GB, 120GB, 240GB and a very large in a small package 480GB model. The IOPS ratings are the same as the full size drives as well - 50K read and 60K write (both random).
At the time of writing I was not able to find the new FTM Plus Slim online for sale, but we know these drives are currently shipping to e-tailers. The original FTM Plus sold for quite a bit less than many of the other SF-2281 / synchronous flash drives on the market. The drive is still listed at Amazon for $167.99 (120GB), which is still a very good price compared to others on the market.
With the drive you get a three year warranty, documentation, desktop adapter bracket that screws for securing the drive in the bracket and in your desktop. MemoRight also has two software packages on their website. The first software utility monitors your drives health and places a visually appealing gauge on your desktop. The second software tool allows you to easily secure erase your FTP Plus or FTM Plus Slim.
