Final Thoughts and Conclusions: The Super Talent MasterDrive is a great entry level SSD. For super freaks who do not want to spend upwards of $1000 dollars for some of the high end drives, its a great product. The load speeds are incredibly fast, with programs loading almost instantly. This drives only weakness is writing. Its no faster, and in some cases slower than a normal rotational 7200RPM hard drive. For those cursed with a laptop hard drive, that constantly parks the heads to save power, this hard drive is a godsend, as since it has not rotational parts, it is silent. If I was going to recommend a drive to someone, I would recommend this drive, if budget allowed.
Legit Bottom Line: The Super Talent MasterDrive is a great drive for those that want speed and do not do a lot of heavy writing. Its clear that these type of drives will not be a fad, and these will truly supersede rotational hard drives. Unfortunately these drives are still rather pricey, and at $419 for a 60GB Drive is still rather high.
