SuperTalent FSD28GC25M is a 2.5″ SSD with 128GB storage capacity. It may not be much in comparison to mechanical drives sporting several hundred gigabytes, but when compared to most other SSDs, it’s a quite impressive figure.

While performance is often showered with praise, especially the latest generation of SSD with write speeds close to 100MB/s, SuperTalent has chosen a different path; performance has been sacrificed for storage capacity.
