ftm slim Memoright goes after the 7mm SSD market

As notebooks and even more so Ultrabooks are getting slimmer, so are the needs for slimmer storage drives and Memoright has announced that it has launched a slimmed down version of its FTM Plus series of SSDs called the FTM Plus Slim. Ok, so the name doesn't exactly make sense, but its new 7mm thick SSD will allow for a wide range of notebooks and at least some Ultrabooks to be upgraded after purchase.

As notebooks and even more so Ultrabooks are getting slimmer, so are the needs for slimmer storage drives and Memoright has announced that it has launched a slimmed down version of its FTM Plus series of SSDs called the FTM Plus Slim. Ok, so the name doesn't exactly make sense, but its new 7mm thick SSD will allow for a wide range of notebooks and at least some Ultrabooks to be upgraded after purchase.

The FTM Plus Slim series will be available in size of 60, 120, 240 and 480GB and although Memoright doesn't specify which controller is being used, the 550/500MB's read/write speeds are suggesting that we're looking at yet another SandForce powered SSD. The FTM Plus Slim series does of course support Trim and there's also support for 128/256-bit AES encryption.

Memoright has also added various over Voltage and over current protection features as well as ESD protection, but maybe most interesting is a feature that allows the SSD to power itself down to protect the data if it's feed irregular power. This could be a handy feature in a notebook, as it's not always you get a clean mains feed when you're out travelling and it might very well save you from losing all your data. No word on pricing or availability, but the FTM Plus Slim has already appeared on the Memoright website, so we can't imagine it'll be too long before it becomes available.
