OWC Transitions to 25nm Flash Memory With Big Price Drop for 480GB SSD at $920

about $920 for the 400GB OWC Mercury Extreme Pro
OWC Mercury Extreme Pro 400GB SSD

Now listed on the OWC site is the new 25nm based 480GB SSD for about $920 for the 480GB OWC Mercury Extreme Pro SSD as I write this. Shipping is noted as “5 Days”. This 480GB drive is what will ship at the high-capacity end, up from the 400GB as noted a few days ago.

The 480GB has 32GB of over-provisioning (7%) using Tier 1 flash memory chips, for long term reliability. and is a SATA II 3Gbps drive. See the other technical specifications on the OWC info page.

OWC is also listing the new 25nm-based 115GB model for $229.99, with availability “5 days”.

Be sure to see yesterday’s notes on the changing SSD landscape, especially the notes about coming 6Gbps SATA III drives.
