Active Media Says New PATA ZIF SSDs Are ‘Truly Fast’

Storage-maker insists latest line of solid state drives offer “advantages over HDDs.”

Active Media Products has a new line of solid state drives that support read speeds up to 100 MB per second. The new 32 GB and 64 GB 1.8-inch PATA ZIF SSDs also reach writes speeds of up to 85 MB per second, according to Active Media.
Active Media PATA ZIF SSD

The SaberTooth ZT is a rugged SSD. Its PATA / IDE ZIF interface supports PIO mode 4 and UDMA mode 6. It also supports SMART commands.†

These drives have the same physical dimensions as industry standard 1.8-inch HDDs, measuring only 2.8 x 2.1 x 0.2 inches (71 x 54 x 5 mm), making them suitable plug-in replacements for many laptop and netbook models.

According to Active Media, SaberTooth SSDs offer a multitude of “advantages over HDDs.” In a press release to EH Publishing, Active Media outline these benefits as including:

  • Faster boot-up and application load speeds
  • Less power consumption (and longer battery life)
  • Lighter weight
  • No moving parts
  • Quieter operation
  • Less heat production
  • Greater reliability

“The SaberTooth ZT removes the performance tradeoffs that have plagued slim 1.8-inch ZIF drives for so long,” argues Active Media Products vice president of sales Jerry Thomson. “Now you can get a truly fast ZIF drive that still fits in a standard 1.8″ form factor. By incorporating a DRAM cache, we’ve dramatically improved write speeds over other ZIF drives.”

Active Media Products’ full range of Turbo of PATA ZIF SSDs are selling now through Amazon.

The manufacturer also offers a SSD selector tool in on its Web site.
