ADATA’s ISMS312 utilizes high-speed MLC NAND flash to deliver superior performance and reliability.  Sequential read speeds are stated as (up to) 250MB/s, with sequential write speeds of (up to) 40MB/s.  ADATA’s new SATA-DOM features a miserly 1.15W of power consumption, which can also significantly extend the lifespan of the host device.  The ISMS312 has an environmental operating range of from -40 degrees Celsius to +85 degrees Celsius, allowing it to still work in even the harshest of environments.

ADATA has also developed the “A+ SLC Solution,” which effectively improves the SSD’s stability, performance and lifespan by more than 3X that of a typical MLC configuration; which brings it closer to that of SLC NAND, but at a cost savings of nearly 80%.  The ISMS312 is a high-quality upgrade solution for industrial applications, with the ability to deliver both performance and cost savings.

    I wish these kinds of modules would be designed with budget users in mind.
    Slap a simple, dramless controller, TLC flash and capacity from 32-128GB coupled with a low price. Savings on dram, materials (less plastic, pcb, metal) and controller could easily yield very low prices, so these kinds of drives would be attainable to even the most budget systems. And slap some disk caching software to go with and you’ve got yourself a seller.

      If you were running a business, would you sell something for less than people were willing to pay for it? I think that’s called charity.

        Thats a fair point. But people were willing to pay 150$ or even 200$ for 256GB drive not that long ago and yet some manufactures are selling that capacity for 100$ or less. I understand goal of every company is to make lots of money. But that doesn’t mean, they have to sell only the most expensive drive.
        Just look at crucial. With their very agressivly priced MX and M series, those drives sell like hotcakes. Demand is literaly soo big, prices actually tend to go up, instead of down.

        So yeah, i think is defenetly market for even lower priced drives. Now that more and more TLC capable solutions are popping out (marvell, SM..) and quality and volume of TLC is ramping up, there is defenetly possibility to do that.

    Oh man, wouldn’t these be great for having one for each operating system? Well, for OS junkies like me, I guess. But we need at least 64GB for that, although I suppose the 32GB might work, keeping in mind that you’d want at least 50% of the drive empty for fast performance.
