Storage company Buffalo has presented a new series of Solid State Drives that looks to be using the Indilinx Barefoot controller. Barefoot was the hottest thing outside Intel’s lab a few months ago, but during  2010 it has been overshadowed by newcomer SandForce and its SSD processors. Indilinx is far from new and Buffalo hasn’t made a poor move choosing this acknowledged and well performing  Barefoot controller.

Buffalo SHD-NSU2 is the name of the new series, available in four capacities (32, 64, 128 and 256GB) and use the most common 2.5″ format.

Buffalo reports read speeds up to 175MB/s, which is hinting that it is not using the fastest available NAND flash circuits, but there is no mention of the write speed. With TRIM and prices between 14,600 – 78,600 YEN they start selling in Japan in about two weeks.
