A joint program between Royal Philips Electronics and Lite-On IT Corporation has brought yet another SSD to the market, the 32GB LiteOn Strong-Page.  To make things even more confusing, if these drives catch on in the market they will likely be branded Plextor, but for now they are PLDS drives.  Using MLC flash and driven by a Marvell 88SS8014 controller, this is not going to be at the more expensive end of the SSD market.  The big question is its performance, both fresh out of the package and after heavy usage; you can see how it fared in Benchmark Reviews tests here.  It is really too bad that we have not yet seen an MRSP yet.

“Hopefully one day soon Solid State Drives will be standard equipment for new computer systems, but first SSDs must become available as an optional upgrade item for build-it-yourself orders. Plextor/LiteOn hopes to bring this service to tier-one OEMs, and computers from Acer, Dell, HP, Lenovo, and Sony could soon offer lightning-fast SSD performance. In this article, Benchmark Reviews tests the LiteOn 32GB ‘Strong-Page’ SSD, model LA-32M1S, built on the Marvell 88SS8014-BHP2 Da-Vinci controller.”
