Solid State drive performance is undeniable and lifespans have increased but many users still clamor for larger storage spaces for their programs, especially that some of the latest games even reach 55GB install sizes, making that 256GB SSD feeling cramped all of a sudden. Thankfully, companies such as Mushkin are expanding their offerings to deliver larger solid-state drive capacities such as the new Reactor 1TB SSD that utilizes a Silicon Motion SM2246EN controller that enables data transfer speeds of up to 560MB/s read and 460MB/s write. Naturally, the larger size also comes at a premium price. More information is available from the official press release below:
