Taking on Kingston's 30GB SSDNow (which is actually an Intel SSD), OCZ has developed and now announced the Onyx series 32GB solid state drive equipped with the Indilinx Amigos controller. This new and affordable 2.5-inch SSD features MLC (multi-level cell) NAND Flash memory chips, a SATA 3.0 Gbps interface, 64MB of cache, TRIM support, a MTBF of 1.5 million hours and maximum read and write speeds of 125 MB/s and 70 MB/s, respectively.

"As new technologies become available, OCZ continues to expand both our enterprise and consumer SSD lines, and one of our goals is to make SSDs more affordable to end-users. Our new Onyx series SSD does exactly that and is a perfect solution for netbooks, laptops, or home desktop PCs," commented Ryan Petersen, CEO of the OCZ Technology Group. "Designed to offer the best of both worlds, the new OCZ Onyx SSD delivers the speed and reliability of solid state storage to mainstream consumers at an aggressive price point that makes the technology more accessible to customers who want to take advantage of all the benefits of the SSDs without incurring the high cost normally associated with the solution."

The 32GB Onyx drive is expected to become available in the coming weeks with a price tag of just $99 (three-year warranty included).
