The brand that once belonged to Micron will begin competing directly with it from now on
The name Lexar has been used for years as the one that united a variety of products storage Different from the American company Micron, ranging from tiny SD cards through drives USB And ending with readers and docking stations - but now it seems to be becoming a direct competitor for the former parent company, in the wake of the new landlady that received the rights to it last year.
Lexar is now part of a Chinese company called Longsys - and from now on you can find its SSDs in stores, alongside those from the brandCrucial Micron's already there.
Lexar's basic NS100 models Offered in volumes between 120GB and 480GB, 2.5-inch configuration and SATA III interface of course, with a three-year warranty, guaranteed maximum transfer speeds of up to 550MB / s per read (or 520MB / s in 120GB and 240GB models ) - and accompanying management software called SSD Dash to help track product features. Official prices will be 30 USD only for 120GB at the lower end, 50 to 240GB and 90 to 480GB.
NS200 models Slightly more advanced ones will be offered in 240GB and 480GB volumes, with continuous maximum transfer speeds of 550Mbps and random speeds of up to 95,000IOPS in read and up to 90,000IOPS in writing, alongside a three-year warranty within 0.46DWPD - with high recommended prices $ 80 and $ 110, respectively.
At this point,SSD Lexar's first internals bring to the market something that did not exist before, but we certainly hope that the actual prices will be much more attractive - so that we can add more contenders to the list of drives worth getting to know and follow in the field.
