Super Talent 2GB Exelerator Ready Boost ReviewTue, Jul 24, 2007 - 12:00 AM
Does The Exelerator Take Off or Stay Grounded?
Super Talent has recently launched the Exelerator family of ReadyBoost drives that use an internal 9-pin USB header on the motherboard to help improve system performance for those that have already made the leap to Windows Vista. These innovative new Flash drives plug into a standard 9-pin USB header inside the chassis, on the motherboard, to function as a dedicated ReadyBoost drive. This is unique as other ReadyBoost drives are used on the external 4-pin plugs. The internal design is nice as nothing is sticking outside the case and after all what is out of sight is out of mind.
Super Talent has rated the Exelerator family of drives to operate at 166X speeds with fast 25MB per second read speeds and sub-millisecond access times. Super Talent claims that the Exelerator drives are the perfect cost effective system upgrade to enhance a consumers Vista experience and that is exactly what we plan on looking at today here on Legit Reviews.
Super Talent offers these drives in either vertical or horizontal connectors to accommodate space constraints within different enclosures. In addition to be able to pick the connectors the Exelerator is also available in 1GB, 2GB and 4GB versions. The Super Talent Exelerator ReadBoost Flash drive that we are looking at today is the 2GB vertical model pictured above.
