It was only a matter of time before Zalman jumped into the SSD ring as they have an excellent reputation for just about any technology related product one can think of. Their first entries are the N-Series and S-Series of SSDs, the N-series containing the SandForce SF-1200 controller while the S-Series contains the JMicron 616 controller. Today we will be hard at work putting the S-Series 128GB drive to the test. The Zalman S-Series 128GB SSD is a mid-level SSD which is available in capacities ranging from 32GB to 128GB with prices from $79 dollars up to $219, as would be the typical price for this test unit. The N-Series is presently available in capacities from 64GB to 128GB but their product site relates that new entries of 40GB and 256GB are expected soon.
