ASUS netbooks from back in the day used relatively small SSDs, and if you got into netbooks early yours might is probably chock full of data by now. Luckily, Active Media Products’ new line of upgrade SSDs will offer better performance and more storage.
The new SSDs are part of the SaberTooth S4 series – an update to the SaberTooth S3 series – which will be compatible with early ASUS netbooks like the S101, 900, 900A, 901, and 1000 Eee PCs. Any netbook with mini PCIe card storage and a SATA-II interface should work fine.
The netbook SSDs come in 16 GB, 32 GB and 64 GB varieties. They’re rumored to last longer due to a wear leveling algorithm and come with read speeds of up to 130 MB/second and writing of up to 50 MB/second.
It all sounds great so far, though in our experience SSDs with such high capacity can be costly, so do your research.
