Mushkin, the famous US maker of memory, memory-based solutions and solid-state drives, has officially announced the release of the all-new ECO2 line of Mushkin SSDs. The ECO2 is the successor to the already released ECO line of SSDs and continues the trend of offering SSDs with thought for nature and “ECOnomical” designs.
The ECO2 line consists of four models with capacities of 60 GB, 120 GB, 240 GB and 480 GB and all of them are made in Pflugerville, TX, USA at Mushkin’s ISO 9001-certified facility, which is located there. The drives reach 550 MB/sec of read speed and 535 MB/sec of write speed and offer various energy efficiency features that help nature and decrease pollution. The drives target people who want to get their first SSD yet they do not want to spend too much money on one.
You won’t be able to find an ECO2 SSD at a retailer near you, though. The new ECO2 line will be sold only through Newegg.com via a partnership deal so if you want one of these drives you should be looking for a computer with a connection to the Internet. There’s no word on how much these models cost but this information will be of no use to people who live in countries not serviced by Newegg anyway.
