Lite-On debuts the Mu-II series solid-state drives

The popular maker of PC components and peripherals Lite-On has announced the new Mu-II line of solid-state drives.

The new SSDs come with numerous nice features that make them worth a look. For instance they use the popular 2.5-inch form factor and are just 7 mm thick, which makes them just perfect for upgrading notebooks. The Mu-II family includes there modes as of now with capacities of 120 GB, 240 GB and 480 GB with all of them supporting the latest SATA 3.0 standard. The drives feature 15 nm TLC NAND flash memory made by Toshiba and performance-wise reach sequential read speeds of up to 555 MB/sec and sequential write speeds of up to 520 MB/sec (480 GB model only). The less spacious 240 GB and 120 GB models reach sequential read speeds of up to 500 MB/sec and sequential write speeds of up to 360 MB, so they are not as impressive.

The new Mu-II drives come with functions such as TRIM and NCQ and offer 3-year warranties. The pricing of these SSDs is unclear at the moment.
